Live After Dinner: Pepper and Shepherd

Jun 14, 2012 by

When you get James Pepper and Anthony Shepherd in the same room, you become part of something artistic and serious, yet fun and inclusive.  We got to experience this when these two, also known as Pepper and Shepherd, joined us for a Live After Dinner session live on the show.  I have personally known the band for nearly four years – since James had just joined Anthony’s solo act – and so I ask them loads of questions I’ve been meaning to over the years.  And they play tracks you can’t find on an album yet, although they do play stuff from their just-released full-length Wreck and Reel.

It’s a great interview and live session with the boys playing five songs beautifully.  I’ve already started working on them to release these with us as some sort of EP… but that will come later as they’ve just released the album.  Have a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below.
