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.
The past decade has seen Flip Grater release 1 E.P, three 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. Her national and international touring history is extensive and prolific.
2010’s While I’m Awake I’m At War was a finalist for Folk Album Of The Year at the Vodafone NZ Music Awards and 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.
Flip Grater released her Lullabies For Anaïs EP in 2018.
