BIOGRAPHY

Mostly influenced by the music scene of the 80's PEPPER MASHAY was orginally planning on becoming a journalist. But everything changed once she started to get up on stage to perform her own songs.

After moving and becoming a session singer in LA, PEPPER has sung for such artists as Tina turner, Cher, Mick Jagger, Keb Mo, Celine Dion and many others.

But it didn't take long for PEPPER MASHAY to step out of the shadows and into the limelight.

in 2000, PEPPER MASHAY exploded on the music scene with her hit, "Dive In The Pool" (the unofficial theme song from Showtime's "Queer As Folk"). In '05 PEPPER released "Send Me An Angel", the classic 80's pop hit wht a remix from Dave Audé, and "Beauty Shop" from the MGM movie DVD featuring Queen Latifah. Her '06 release called, "Lost You Mind" went #1 on Billboard's® Dance Club Play Chart. Her next song, "Does Your Mamma Know" was released on her own label "Freckle Bandit Records" for '08. The song won Best Dance/Electronica category for "The USA Song Writing Cometition" for '08.

"Does Your Mamma Know" was also a featured song on the highly watched "Bravo's A-List Awards Show" and the song is on "Promo ONly's Mainstream Club Compilation". "It's an honor to be on that complilation."

"I've got more surprises up my sleeve", says Pepper. "I still write all of my latest releases, and plan to have new songs coming out in the next few months. My next plan is to have a second compilation based around house stuff that was released while I was on the Azuli Label out of London", says Pepper. "I hope to bring newer fans up to speed in knowing my discotography."

There is one thing that Pepper would like her fans to konw about her and that is 'you can never give up on your dreams in whatever you want to do in life.'
