Pip Lewis is a British-American folk-pop indie singer-songwriter and a Song Academy Young Songwriter finalist. She calls herself a “hopeless empath,” often reflecting on the human condition, which she says is “the one thing we all have in common.” Her music has aired on the BBC and 91X and she’s performed at the House of Blues, Queen Bee's, and the Roxy.
She was 16 years old when she started writing, recording, and mixing her own songs in 2018, with her debut singles "Frown" and "What's A Dream?" Her debut EP Pathos was released in July 2019 and promoted by singles such as "Missing in Action" (a Top 10 Finalist in the international category of Song Academy's Young Songwriter competition) and "Two Years."
Her single "People Like You" was featured on The Mahogany Sessions multiple times, as well as airing on BBC Introducing and on Loudspeaker with Tim Pyles on 91X FM.
Another single “I Fell Asleep Thinking of Her” was released in January 2021, in advance of her Human Nature album. The quirky narrative-based love song was inspired by Greek mythology and plays with the concept of immortality.
According to Lewis, “Human Nature dives deeper than ever before, putting a mirror to the inextricable relationship between people and the world around them.”
The album came together in 2020. "I recorded all of Human Nature in my bedroom, it was recorded before and during Covid," says Lewis. "Since I’m relatively independent in the recording process, the lockdown didn’t force much of a change upon my creative process. If anything, it gave me more time to work."
As it turned out, the pandemic made it easier to focus on music. "I’m currently taking a gap year in between high-school and college, and this is the first extended period of time in my life that I get to focus solely on my own projects. It seemed like the ideal time to work on my first large body of work! I plan to promote it in the same way that I promote my other work: organically and hoping for the best."
