Bio

Jinja Safari co-frontman and East Coast musician, Pepa Knight, has been developing an impressive amount of buzz since launching his own solo venture in early 2014. After accumulating a notable degree of praise for his debut single release – the emphatic ‘Rahh!’ - Knight has now announced the release of follow-up track ‘Clams’ for late-June.

Rahh!’ was embraced by worldwide tastemakers and music lovers alike after its release in April, with rave reviews arriving from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and even India – via an in-depth interview between Pepa and Rolling Stone India about the writing and recording process behind his debut collection of songs titled Hypnotized.

This has a really euphoric feel to it that'll keep a smile fixed on your face even after the song's 3:45 is up.
