Bio

Oh Pep! are musical explorers who travel in the form of a band; a collaboration between songwriters Olivia Hally (guitar, vocals) & Pepita Emmerichs (fiddle, mandolin). Drawing upon their escapades, they take you on a carefully arranged pop/folk adventure for your ears.

Originally based in Melbourne, Oh Pep! have toured 1000s of kilometers performing their songs and when they’ve been stationary their songs have travelled further via the airwaves of national radio. It was just last year that Oh Pep! were featured on Amrap’s AirIt Great Southern Charts ‘Top Ten Tracks Most Ordered For Airplay’ alongside Sarah Blasko, Boy & Bear and Kutcha Edwards and were awarded the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Performer of the Year award at the National Folk Festival.

After launching into the Australian music scene with their first EP, they spent a week by the beach recording with ARIA-Award Winner and CMAA Producer of the Year, Shane Nicholson and have since launched their second EP, II, with a national and international tour. They are currently preparing to record their debut album and tour North America!

Joined live by an accomplished array of rhythm section musicians, Oh Pep! will have you travelling far & wide to their gigs for a sometimes foot-stomping, somewhat heartbreaking show.

This has a great Pat Benatar beat that makes me want to run, which seems appropriate given the title.

Whenever this comes on the radio I stop for a second to listen a little more closely as there's something really special about this tune. Olivia's got a great voice and the delivery is perfect here and each deftly plucked note sounds spot on. Very well done.
