Flip Grater NZ Summer Tour – February 2013

Press release – for immediate release

Flip Grater NZ Summer Tour – February 2013


Kiwi singer-songwriter and author Flip Grater has spent the last year living the broke-artist-in-Paris dream. Alone and penniless, she managed to find herself a place to sleep, a French band and a record deal while writing and recording a new album in her fantasy Parisian studio. Now embarking on a solo tour through Aotearoa, with the aim of fundraising enough to finish her album, Flip will be previewing new material for the first time for her home crowd.

Over the past eight years Flip Grater has made a name for herself in New Zealand as a unique indie-folk musician with three solo albums to her name, as well as being the author of two food and travel books, and a member of Fly My Pretties IV. Catch her live this summer in your town before she takes off again to suffer some more overseas.

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
