aka Pip Brown, Philippa Brown

20 May 2013

In a world of pop commodities and starlets that mine the 1980s for ideas and style tips, Phillipa (Pip) "Ladyhawke" Brown bucks the trend.

A vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Brown has finely honed her own style over the last decade, from being lead guitarist and backing vocalist in Wellington band Two Lane Blacktop, to a reticent, but compelling, solo artist in her own right who has gained rave reviews both at home, and on the world stage. Dividing her time between NZ and the UK, Ladyhawke is a global phenomenon.
