BK Pepper + Brian Crosby
Brian Crosby is an Irish pianist, producer & film score composer. He was a founding member of the band Juniper with Damien Rice and then later Bell X1, and has collaborated with Dustin O’Halloran, Hildur Guõnadóttir and the late Jóhann Jóhannsson on numerous film and TV scores.
His latest solo album Imbrium, a spacious collection of pared back piano recordings was released in the Spring of 2021 while most of the world was still in lockdown. The Sunday Times describes the record as “nine unadorned piano instrumentals capture the stillness of life suspended, each piece as delicate and moving as it is restrained.”, while The Irish Times says “worth not only the wait but also its weight in gold. Gorgeous gems to enthral and delight. Imbrium is a soothing and riveting new chapter“.
BK Pepper is a composer and producer from Dublin. Classically trained on the piano and trombone, BK’s musical projects include composing for film and theatre as well as touring with both orchestras and rock bands.
His debut solo record Territories was recorded in a number of locations from Abbey Road to a converted swimming pool. It was released in 2020 followed up by a live performance film ‘From an Empty Castle’ in 2021. Atwood Magazine US describes the record as “Few debuts can leave one breathless, fewer still can be regarded as World Class…BK Pepper achieves both. One of this year’s best albums and a debut worth celebrating” while The Irish Times say “Distinctiveness that is impossible to overlook”.
