Young Indie Rock-star Pip Blom has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Cloud 9 Music. Pip Blom (22), who is songwriter and fronts her four-piece band, has quickly become one of the hottest acts in the scene. Her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Boat’ was declared an “Instant Classic” by Rolling Stone and NME wrote that “Pip Blom writes songs that makes you fall in love with guitars again”. Barely a month after this release she fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams – playing one of the most famous stages in the world, Glastonbury. Pip even started a blog three years ago, describing her journey to the huge UK-festival. On the strength of her first EP, she played Eurosonic and toured Europe and the UK, eventually landing herself a string of gigs at another taste-making event: SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Coen Tegelberg, Creative Manager Cloud 9 Music: “We are beyond proud to welcome this brilliant young songwriter and artist to our roster. We have been following the band for a long time and are excited to finally represent her full catalogue all over the world. Since first discovering her at Eurosonic 2018, it was immediately clear to us there was something very special about Pip and her band. She’s a star already, and we look forward to work with Pip and her fantastic team.”
Pip Blom: “We can’t wait to start working with Cloud 9. It’s the most important thing to us as a band, to work with people who are as passionate as we are. Coen has flown all over the world to see our shows and has shown us so much love from the very beginning. We are very excited for this future together.”
