PEBS
LOS ANGELES SHOWS ANNOUNCED:

AUGUST 22 AT HOTEL CAFÉ AND
SEPTEMBER 19 RECORD RELEASE SHOW AT THE VIPER ROOM

As he prepares to release his debut album Sweet Surrender September 20, singer-songwriter PEBS (a.k.a. Jon Pebsworth) has announced two key Los Angeles performances. He'll play Hotel Café in Hollywood on August 22 at 8:30pm and will hold a special record release show at The Viper Room in West Hollywood on September 19 at 9pm.

Sweet Surrender is a breathtakingly honest ten-song collection that sees Pebsworth confronting his inner demons and transforming them into a series of California-inspired folk songs that are as cathartic as they are catchy.

Pebsworth has been a fixture in the thriving California punk scene for two decades with his band Buck-O-Nine, but PEBS' debut recording is a collection of songs that explore a totally different side of the music spectrum. Sweet Surrender features everything from "November," which has an alt-country twang with a chorus that anyone who has suffered heartbreak can indentify with, to "We Drove All Night," about the years that Pebsworth logged on the road.

Sweet Surrender was produced and engineered by close friends James Achor (former guitarist for Royal Crown Revue) and Chris Heckman at their Exile On Mountain Street studio in Glendale, CA.
