Pip Millett Covers New Wave Transcendence Issue
Pip Millett, born and raised in Manchester has been serenading the ears of many over the last two years. Fusing her soft, sultry vocals with crisp Soul, R&B and Neo-Soul backdrops, the 22-year old songstress is proving to be one of the most exciting acts to emerge from the UK.
The Manchester native was always dubbed alongside her sister as ‘the silent twins’ due to their quiet nature, “I was always quietly confident” Pip explained. If you listen to Pip’s catalogue right back to 2018 you will notice calmness runs through her music. Pip’s lyrical ability speaks for itself, growing up listening to the likes of Bob Marley, Joni Mitchell and Lauryn Hill its evident her ability to story tell has come from listening to the best. All of these artists were fixtures in her life from a young age and her love affair with music really started to blossom back in school when she received guitar lessons from her mum as a present.
Pip moved out of the city life in Manchester to the peaceful countryside as a child due to her parents split. Around that same time Pip tragically lost her father, in going through such a difficult time Pip stated this was a key part of her determined outlook on life, “I was self-assured but always a bit weird, To be honest I don’t think I ever wanted to fit in. I never tried”. Moving to the big city of London to study music was the first step Pip took into the limelight whilst still refusing to conform.
