Despite nylon strings and acoustic guitar classes, his songwriter journey with lyric sheets after a few years landed on metal strings in alternative
music. With the focus being on the creative process and music vision, Payne Pepper Jam started to work around the sound design at home studio.
Music is my way of communication. Since I was able to play a guitar, all I wanted is to be understood. This little bit of sentimentality or originality still chases my songwriting foundation until now. Having grown up with music that truly took my dreams into another dimension, day by day learning from and listening to Freddie Mercury and Queen songs was a time when my emotional mature led to the music world.
Also I am working on production music for sync licensing opportunities posting compositions on DISCO platform under my real name Janis Peins. I am writing melodic and upbeat music for tv/advertising, but sad and mysterious compositions for film trailers.
This voice will not be heard anymore
and this is the reason of the whisper in my head.
If you can hear me, I will open my mind
When many people around the world
Are broken and hurt without rights to say it loud.
"Whisper" is about the human rights.
"I haven't spoken, I haven't met - my world is broken"
"Burned Letters" is about the pandemic.
"Time is getting tired as an old threshold,
But people still running over it
Time is tired without liveness on earth
When traffic is lost, but emptiness is staying - the world turns into dust"
"Alive" composition and video is created in mind of solidarity.
Save the planet !
