Bio

Pipin, a project from Brisbane singer/songwriter Bec Hoole is an encapsulation of all things dreamy pop, her songs holding reminiscent flavours of disco that bring on 90's nostalgia. Angelic vocals float in contrast over electro-pop synth lines and driving bass melodies. Named partly after The Lord Of The Rings, a very awesome puppy and partly a children’s storybook, Pipin is an exploration of the creative spirit and a form of self-preservation amidst this crazy and wonderful world.

Having forged a creative partnership with her partner, multi-instrumentalist and producer Hugh Middleton (Mid Ayr), the two create at Hugh’s self-made studio ‘Out With The In’ in the heart of Brisbane’s riverfront suburb of West End. Together they compose glittering soundscapes that express Pipin’s inner dialogue and cathartically deal with the confusion, emotion and joy that come with being a person. Enlisting the assistance of friend and fellow musician Zac Moynihan for his percussion prowess and Andy "George" Reed for his tantalising bass lines, Pipin is set for an exciting and energetic live show that is sure to tug at the heart strings and also make you bop.

Inspired by the intricacies of growing up and the transition from adolescence to adulthood, Pipin writes with emotion, covering topics from the attention economy to heartbreak, disappointment, love and hope. The spectrum of her song writing and interesting vocal phrasing and melodies gliding over pulsing chord progressions are designed to be heard in a variety of scenarios, from parties to a party of one alone eating pizza.

Her debut EP "Your Time Is Your Own" is out on NOWWWWW

Affectionate and warm while soaring into the cold of space, this is a lover on a shuttle farewelling her partner for years to come.
