Seeking: Label, Mgmt, Film/TV
Style: Singer-Songwriter

Anyone looking for a sensitive singer-songwriter will find Epperson’s polished recordings a satisfying fit. It’s all here, the authenticity in the words, the sincerity in the voice, and the gleam in the grooves. Each instrument achieves an ideal tone and texture. We’re talking radio- and film/TV-ready songs like “Another Day” on which the artist shares his day-to-day anxiety but with a light, even effervescent, touch that lightens life’s shadows. Add some adept new-age elements (cymbal swells, wind ambience) and the vibe is just right. “When I Build My World” delivers another dose of determined optimism, while “Tonight” allows the Utah-based artist to stand up for fidelity––and for himself.
