Juicy Acoustic Band Bell Pepper Jam

Bell Pepper Jam began with five musicians in a Highbury, London basement. Over the course of two years, BPJ enjoyed great food and laughs at their weekly rehearsals whilst developing their unique sound ‘Juicy Acoustic Soul’.

In December 2012, to the surprise of their fellow Peppers, Jenny and Lars (boyfriend/percussionist) announced their plans to travel long term in Latin America. Although this meant a hiatus for band, it was a great excuse to get into the studio to capture the Bell Pepper Jam sound. Thanks to Dennis (bass player) and his extensive friend network BPJ scored some valuable studio time at The Smokehouse Studios, E1, London.

The album was recorded in March and December 2012. In an effort to capture the flavour of the live performances, all songs were recorded live – playing together as performed on stage. The finished album is a snapshot of their live sound, warts and all!
