“Flip Grater has a Hope Sandoval feel to her acousto-folk, but when she shades to something more angsty indie, she’s got a little Cat Power in her.” – The Austin Chronicle, Austin, Texas
Flip Grater's intimate live act and her recorded work alike have garnered wide critical acclaim.
Flip has performed with a number of New Zealand’s premiere artists, including The Phoenix Foundation, Dave Dobbyn, and Anika Moa. Flip has also shared the stage with international stars such as Ben Lee, The Shins, and Hugh Cornwall, and she has traveled to the Texas for South by Southwest (SXSW) festival twice, performing at the 2006 event to a number-strong crowd, including pillars of the worldwide music industry.
Her 2006 LP release, Cage For A Song, turned heads across the folk and alt-country scene, spawning 3 singles, 4 videos and attracting New Zealand On Air support. The track ‘Long Awaited Sigh’ was selected from this album by producers of the hit American television show Brothers and Sisters, for the emotional final episode of their first season.
Flip’s new album Be All And End All is out now in NZ or online at www.cdbaby.com, www.amplifier.co.nz or on itunes
Be All And End All is a brilliantly balanced album, with Flip’s polished songwriting taking centre stage, as she moves from gentle, tender ballads to raucous indie-folk and back, via quirky pop and just a touch of alt-country. – amplifer.co.nz
