Pepe Willbergin musiikillinen ura on ollut huikea. Menestys alkoi jo1960 –luvulla ja on jatkunut yhtäjaksoisesti yli 50 vuotta. Kiertueita bändien kanssa 60-70-luvuilla toteutettiin myös Skandinaviassa ja Saksassa.

 

Pepe on uransa aikana säveltänyt musiikkia itselleen ja muille artisteille sekä menestynyt hyvin monenlaisissa sävellyskilpailuissa vuosien varrella.

 

Pepe itse kuvaa toimineensa viime vuosina “ pinnan alla”, mutta Pepe & Saimaa -levyn valtava menestys nosti hänet uudelleen suomalaisten tietoisuuteen.
