Lepani is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. His debut song showcases the talent and impressive skill set Lepani possesses. Recorded in his home studio under his parents’ house with an eclectic mix of gear and instruments, ‘Pocket Full of Love’ was not only written and recorded by Lepani himself, he also produced, mixed and performed all instruments on the track. A track that took a year and a half to complete but was well worth the time and patience.
Born in Fiji into a very musical family, Lepani moved to Rotorua at a young age and then to Auckland for his teen years. It wasn’t until he was 14 when his music teacher discovered that he could sing, a talent Lepani had been hiding before then. Championed by his music teacher, he started to write and perform songs. Once the passion for music took off there was always battled between choosing music and rugby, but in the end, music took the lead. As soon as school finished, he started working graveyard shifts to fund his growing passion and to buy music equipment. This led him to record and produce all of his music himself at home.
