I met Peppa a few years back. I did a road trip from the east to the west coast. My camera was stolen in New York and I broke my smartphone a few days later. So I just had my pencil, notebook and guitar to capture the moments.
One evening a few hours from Colorado I sat down at a bar. Peppa worked there and we started a conversation and talked all night. She was funny and interested, but at the same time she seemed mysterious. Although she told a lot about herself, I couldn’t grasp her in total. This talk with Peppa is one of the encounters of this trip, which moved me most.
Especially the deep melancholy in her smile and voice is a vivid memory. It is the inspiration for so many lyrics, which try to capture and empathize this smile. Some of those lyrics evolved into songs. Songs which tell about the smile of Peppa Lee.
