Down South Pepper band (commonly known as DSP band) is from Norway and we have been making and playing music since the mid 80's, we have been playing different genres of music during these years. Today we mostly make and play country and americana music. We are inspired by music from the 60's and 70's, like Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Reival and Neil Young, this is maybe what has influenced the music we make today.
We have released more than 20 songs that are available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other online music services. The singles are in rotation at a number of radio stations in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and USA. We had placements on country charts both in Norway and international based on how many times our sangs has been played on radio. Here are the placements on charts so far:
