C & C ARTIST
After leaving school at the age of 16 to pursue a career as a Jazz session drummer, Pip’s career took off in the mid 90’s as co-founder member of naughty boy indie rockers The Pecadiloes. Their blend of angsty guitar noise, Hip Hop breakbeats and energetic live shows established Pip as a versatile drummer and rounded musician.
Pip joined The Quireboys in 2003 and has been a regular touring member of the rhythm section ever since.
Alongside The Quireboys, Pip has played with musical heavyweights such as James Burton, Albert Lee, Ricky Warwick, and many others, and most recently initiated as drummer for legendary rock n rollers The Dirty Strangers.
"I’m not a bang-crash-wallop kind of guy, I like to think a drummer should compliment a song and its musical parts, not play along or over it. I guess that makes me an odd fit for Rock n Roll. Then again, maybe I’m old fashioned - which makes me a good fit!”
Pip’s feel and groove on the drums and multi-instrumental ability continue to keep him in high demand within the industry.
On C & C:
"C & C drums are the perfect match for my style and the musical world I work in.
The craftsmanship is second to none. Bill and Jake create these remarkable and beautiful drums that have the tone and sophistication of 40 year old drums with the endurance and consistency to meet a modern busy touring/recording lifestyle."
