Fans can catch PEBS (aka Jon Pebsworth) live at 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 PEBS confronting his inner demons and transforming them into a series of California-inspired folk songs that are as cathartic as they are catchy. As Buzzbands.LA's Kevin Bronson notes, PEBS' "twangy and tangy Americana…exhibits the authenticity of a man with plenty of stories, and maybe a few regrets."

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.
