PEP, Emergency Tiara
With Elana J and The Grinders


PEP originally began as the solo project of Starlight Girls drummer Karys Rhea. In the fall of 2011, after hearing ‘Runaround Sue’ playing in a clothing store, Rhea became nostalgic and downloaded over 100 albums from the 50s and early 60s. She started humming doowop style melodies while practicing monotonous drum rudiments for hours at a time. These drum parts and vocal melodies became the foundation for two out of the four songs on debut EP, My Baby and Me, released February 11th, 2014. 
PEP has now settled into a tight knit act. In a live setting, the six piece set up truly breathes a vintage wind into PEP's unique brand of indie doo-wop.
PEP completes the picture with an army of back-up singers and choreographed moves reminiscent of 1960s girl groups The Shangri-La’s, Ronettes, and The Angels, who all clearly provide an inspirational spring board. They are currently working on their upcoming full length album. 

Emergency Tiara: 

Classically trained in vocals and piano, Emergency Tiara is inspired by the power of music to uplift audiences, having developed her love of singing through early performances with the likes of leading performers including Japanese vocalist, Ken Nishikiori, on La Damnation de Faust, conducted by Seiji Ozawa (now musical director of Vienna State Opera).

Emergency Tiara is a graduate of Berklee College of Music. Her influence ranges in genres from jazz and Latin, to African and hip hop.  She has worked with artists and industry icons such as Tata Vega, Raheem DeVaughn, Bootsy Collins, Dontae Winslow and Valerie Simpson.

With a voice that crosses the fire of the Ronettes with the freedom of Gwen Stefani, Emergency Tiara defines girl power and is an experience that gives pop/soul music proper residence in the 21st century.
