In this episode, we meet Peppina, a Finnish singer/songwriter turned pop star who was afraid to share her music with her own community, so instead she went online and played her songs for the rest of the world.
At 15, the young artist would sit in her bedroom where she would write and post songs on HitRecord, an online production company founded by the actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt. There she would attract the attention of artists around the globe, quickly becoming the most downloaded musician working on the site.
The producer, Brad Newman hosts this episode that follows a girl from a small island in Helsinki to the biggest stages in America. As one of her songs suggests, Peppina "makes make-believe believable."
