Flip Grater is a singer-songwriter from Christchurch, New Zealand. She plays guitar; delicate, country-flecked folk lullabies and dark and dirty little rock songs, and many things in between. She sings in a beautiful, versatile voice that can whisper a love song so sweet or wail a note so powerful that audiences are left spellbound. Her debut album, Cage For A Song, was released in 2006 on Maiden Records, and has since spawned three singles: 'Bedside Table', 'This Road Leads Home' and 'Everybody Else Is Busy Mess'.
Flip's profile in New Zealand is on the rise, having shared the stage with international artistsBen Lee, The Shins, Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3 and Gina Villalobos as well as New Zealand's premiere artists Anika Moa, The Phoenix Foundation, SJD, Lucid 3, Gramsci,Autozamm, James and Donald Reid, and Dave Dobbyn.
A solo tour of New Zealand in October and November of 2006 saw Flip travelling around the country, playing dozens of shows and collecting vegetarian recipes for 'The Cookbook Tour' book, which was released on Maiden Records in August 2007.
She has travelled twice to the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, performing at the festival and live to air on KUT FM and KLBJ FM.www.flipgrater.com
