Flip Grater

Paris-based New Zealand singer-songwriter Flip Grater has a penchant for sharing. Apart from memoirs and recipes, she pens highly personal, nostalgic and at times melancholic indie-folk songs.

Her new album PIGALLE pays homage to her inspirations and influences from both France and New Zealand, while maintaining her uniquely intimate sensibility.
A departure from her 3 previous acoustic albums, PIGALLE reveals Grater’s grittier side. Written in Paris and recorded at Studio Pigalle, her French band includes trumpet, electric guitars, piano and chamberlain by French artist Babx and vocal backing from Poni Hoax’s Nicolas Ker.

The past decade has seen Flip Grater release one E.P, four critically acclaimed albums (2006's Cage For A Song, 2008's Be All And End All, 2010’s While I’m Awake, I’m At War and 2014’s PIGALLE) and two published books. She has performed in over 15 countries and at festivals such as SXSW, The Great Escape, MAMA, Reeperbahn and Museumsuferfest. 

In 2010 Flip released While I’m Awake I’m At War which was a finalist for Folk Album Of The Year at the Vodafone NZ Music Awards, was released in 7 countries, garnered critical acclaim and earned Flip a strong underground following in Germany, France and Portugal. The first single from the album Careful has become a popular song for film and TV, being included in the 2012 romantic comedy Admission, several NZ TV series and the NZ TVC campaign for Q Card, and was included in a cover compilation for German Rolling Stone Magazine.

2010 also saw Flip release the second of her two books was published. The Cookbook Tour Europe is a collection of diary-style travel stories from Flip’s first European tour, tour photos and collected recipes from the road.

Flip’s latest album PIGALLE was released in Germany and NZ in April 2014. French, UK and Portuguese release will follow in September. The album has already been very well received, with 4 and 5 star reviews across NZ and German media and entered the NZ Top 40 Albums at number 14.
