grand pepper of reality is both the band and the man Doug Principato, whose talent was born from biting into handfuls of hot peppers as a child. Fusing Psychedelic/Alternative/Album Rock & Folk, songs resonate from the heart for the heart. The band is celebrating their second release, "Songs That Saved My Life," available as CD and download. The album's title and songs are a direct result of a harrowing personal experience.
The band features Jonas Mannon: drums, bells, various percussion, Fritz Sammy: bass, Shosh Vogel: backing vocals, clarinet, guitar & Doug: composer, producer, lead vocals, guitars, mandolin, uke & synthesizers.
