Nominee for multiple Hamilton Arts Award in music, Pip lived in Asia for a number of years.

Once, playing a tiny club in Seoul, he won over a cover-tune-demanding audience by continuing to play after a tipsy audience member had accidentally opened a bottle of beer all over Pip’s guitar neck  (the beer fridge was directly behind the “stage”). The owner came up, apologized, and cleaned the guitar mess up with a towel with Pip continuing to play all the while.

Pip has performed in many countries including in Korea, Thailand, Laos, France, Spain, Germany, Czechoslovakia and the United States.

As well as headlining himself, Pip has opened for Ian Tamblyn, David Wiffen, and James Keelaghan (their music does not sound like Pip’s) – and he’s also a past winner of the Central Ontario Songwriter’s Award (1999).

In 2001, Pip played hockey for the famous Morningstars, a team comprising Toronto area musicians.

His music is catchy, fresh, reflective, jazz-influenced tunes.
