Nominated for multiple Hamilton Arts Award in music, Pip lived in Asia for a number of years playing his original distinctive and melodic artpop songs with jazz elements that will make you wish you had discovered him sooner.
Some songs make you want to do a latin dance; some make you sense the beauty of life.
Once, playing a tiny club in Seoul, he won over a cover-tune-demanding audience by continuing to play after a tipsy audience member had accidentally opened a bottle of beer all over Pip’s guitar neck (the beer fridge was directly behind the “stage”). The owner came up, apologized, and cleaned the guitar mess up with a towel with Pip continuing to play all the while.
Pip has performed in many countries including in Korea, Thailand, Laos, France, Spain, Germany, Czechoslovakia and the United States.
As well as headlining himself, Pip has opened for Ian Tamblyn, David Wiffen, and James Keelaghan (their music does not sound like Pip’s) – and he’s also a past winner of the Central Ontario Songwriter’s Award (1999).
In 2001, Pip played hockey for the famous Morningstars, a team comprising Toronto area musicians.
Early on, Pip was influenced by Toronto rock bands and classical guitar and lute music. He lives in Hamilton where he has recently completed his 24th album of original tunes called Twenty-Four: Obscurity Mills.
His music is catchy, fresh, reflective, jazz-influenced tunes.
