Pep's is a French artist (as well as a group) based in Grenoble, with musical styles encompassing genres such as Rock, Acoustic and Funk. The group was formed in 2001. The stage name of singer (and group) comes from a nickname inspired by the lead singer's name: Florian Peppuy. His influences are very diverse, ranging from Led Zeppelin and Black Desire, to Ben Harper, Otis Redding and The Fugees.


Florian Peppuy first picked up the trombone age 6 and a decade later he started composing and performing locally in a group by the name of "Recycled." At the age of 18, he left for Paris, changed his stage name to Pep’s and spent two years playing as a Busker in local Bars, and on the streets of Paris. It was around this time, that the group: Pep's was formed.

It consists of:
* Bassist and former “Recycled” member Philippe Berruyer

A maxi "Pending" album was released in 2006. It’s comprised of 4 titles in the taken from the band’s various live singles, but also two new singles entitled: "J'te greenhouse" and "Tristan", a tribute to snowboard champion Tristan Picot, a friend of Pep's, who disappeared in Jackson Hole (USA) on January 4, 2003 during an avalanche.

In 2007 Guillaume Alexandre and Combeau Diederichs left the group, to pursue other activities. Guillaume Marocco a drummer from Grenoble, replaced the original drummer. In Mid-2007, the group signed a contract artist with the label "Echo Production" created by Mike Inca, the leader of the group Sinsémilia, and after a summer of work, the group released a new album in October 2007, produced by Laurent Guéneau (Khaled, Sinsemilia ...).
