ABOUT BRET BOLLINGER & THE BAD HABITS:
Bret Bollinger in an American musician who is best known as the lead singer and bassist for the rock band, Pepper. Bollinger was born in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, and started Pepper shortly after high school graduation in 1997. Over the past two decades the band has sold over a million albums worldwide and toured extensively across the globe, including all of the United States and over 50 other countries. Pepper has shared the stage with the likes of Snoop Dogg, 311, Sublime and Blink 182. They have appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live (July, 2013), Fuse TV, ESPN X-Games, and Playboy TV.
Pepper's popularity has placed them in heavy rotation on the world famous Los Angeles radio station, KROQ, and landed them multiple San Diego Music Awards. Finally, their music has been placed in several feature films including Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2007), and Good Luck Chuck (2007), as well as video games such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Transworld Surf. Currently the band is recording new music and continuing to tour extensively, having just released a successful album, Ohana, which was recorded at their own studio, Kona Town Recording. The band recently embarked on an extensive summer 2018 tour with Slightly Stoopid and Stick Figure.
Bollinger is simultaneously launching a solo career, and will be releasing his debut EP, "LO-FI", on November 12th 2018. LO-FI aims to showcase a vintage reggae/rock sound, while also providing a fresh take on the genre. The follow-up EP, "HI-FI", will be released in 2019 and will sound more contemporary and commercial than its counterpart as the name implies. Both EP's will be promoted with extensive touring starting also in the Fall of 2018.
