Bio

​The Money War was conceived while Dylan Ollivierre (Rainy Day Women) and Carmen Pepper (Warning Birds) drove across the US in late 2015. Inspired by the trip, a pile of iPhone demos was created. After a chance meeting with producers Thom Monahan (Fruit Bats, Little Joy) and Arne Frager (Prince, Paul McCartney) in a dive bar in San Francisco, the duo were convinced of the value of the demos. Returning home with a load of stories, they then began work on materializing a record.

'Stars' was written while Dylan and Carmen were in LA at the beginning of their recent US trip. Dylan explains “It was inspired by a walk along Hollywood Boulevard and seeing the disparity in lifestyles between the famous and the homeless that all walked the same street. We also met so many people that had moved to LA with hopes to crack it in the entertainment industry but ended up working shitty jobs for years”.

'Stars’, written and produced by Dylan is taken from the Money War’s debut 6 track EP which will be released on April 7.

"They delivered exactly as tight a set as would be expected from such a talented and experienced collective of artists, the crowd responding with cheers and enthusiasm." - Sam Elliot, Elliot Cahill, The Music (Southbound Festival)

"The Money War finds Dylan Ollivierre and Carmen Pepper - whose combined harmonies are a thing of beauty" - Bob Gordon, Music Feeds (5 bands to watch out for in 2017)

They've nailed another good song. Love those fuzzy early '70s vibes.
