The Victorian duo is about to embark on their biggest year yet

More Oh Pep! More Oh Pep!

While 2015 was a big year for Oh Pep!, 2016 is looking huge for the Melbourne duo.

The terrific twosome of Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs have just signed to the Village Sounds agency, which has on its books such luminaries as Vance Joy, Megan Washington and Courtney Barnett, among others.

In March, they will be making their way to Austin, Texas, for the world-famous South By South West festival.

The pair have been wowing audiences since 2012 with their brand of folk/pop/roots gorgeousness, managing to pull themselves a Young Folk Performer Of The Year gong at Canberra's 2014 National Folk Festival and scoring air time in Canada, the UK and the USA.
