I was advised for this section of the website that I should do what is the ‘industry standard’. That is, I should either have someone else write this little bio for me, or write this in third-person. But if you as the reader are reading this, I would assume that it’s because you are interested in me. Therefore, shouldn’t it be written from me to you, personally?
I am Pepper Kayn. Born sometime in the winter months between the musical formation of Pink Floyd and Duran Duran, somewhere in the Mid-lands of England, in a half-filled soap-less bath late one stormy night and preceded to grow up in no way whatsoever.
So, what do you need to know? Well, you don't need to know whether I'm male, female or other; my age; my nationality; my sexual preference; my political agenda, or my beliefs (religious or otherwise), because this has no bearing on the music I produce, the stories I write or the paintings I paint. These things only lead you to form an opinion about a person which is often misconstrued. You simply need to know this; I am a musician, writer and graphic artist and I have chosen to be these three things in life. Everything I create, from melody to character is based upon experience and or research, and I try to keep everything that I produce original. I will always give credit where due, whether it be the inspiration behind a piece of music, a story, a character, even advice I may have received which has helped me on my way.
If you like what I produce, then you like it. Enjoy it. I appreciate that you do. But if you don't, then you don't. Go elsewhere and find what it is you do like, and don't waste time on things that you don't. Enjoy your life and the things that make you happy.
Lastly, thank you for taking your time to listen to my music and or read my stories. I shall continue on.
And if you are still reading/interested: I have studied music theory; architecture; neurology; neuro-anatomy; mnemonics - and written a book on it; invented stuff and once upon a time, owned patents; I am dyslexic; mildly asthmatic; incomprehensibly scared of heights; over the age of forty but younger than fifty.
So, what am I?
