P.E Tripp (Phillip Eugene Tripp) is an American/English singer-songwriter originating from London, now based in South East England, unsigned and currently unrepresented.
Tripp‟s interest in music began early when he was given a keyboard at the age of 7. It wasn‟t long before his love of singing and song-writing developed, fuelled by his mother‟s Motown record collection and a love for the stage whilst at school.
A singer, songwriter, producer and multi – instrumentalist, Tripp credits his part in the Church worship band as an early teen to his skills as a musician, to this day playing guitar, piano, bass, drums, djembe, Octapad and (!) beatbox.
Originally being musically inspired and crafted by the sounds of UK Garage and the underground urban scene in the Capital, he wrote his first release “Like a boy” whilst as a teenager in South London. This eventually was recorded, arranged and produced by Tripp and came out in 2008 and the music video for this original release is still available to watch on YouTube.
Since the release of “Like a boy” Tripp has evolved his sound into his own, which he currently describes as “LDN Funk” a mix of Electro, Pop, RnB and 80‟s Groove Funk. Add on to this - 3 years of relentless live performance, which included gigs at Camden Proud Gallery, Camden Rock, Nambucca, Walkabout, Sound Leicester Square, The Original Songwriters-Showcase, Babalou Brixton, Hoxton Cell. The Spice of Life Soho, 12 Bar, Blag Club, Vibe Bar Brick Lane and countless others across London and the South East of England. P.E Tripp has also had tracks featured on local radio, including: Southside FM in Waterloo London and more recently Uckfield FM in East Sussex where he had tracks from his upcoming album played and featured an on air live performance. P.E Tripp was also interviewed in „The Stage‟ national entertainment magazine in Jan 2010.
All releases to date have been written, arranged and performed by P.E Tripp, including every instrument and vocal arrangement. Releases currently available on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, are: „Miss Artois‟ (2009) „Beautiful‟ (2011) and most recently his debut album „By the Starlight‟ which is an e.p he claims to have recorded “in my Nan‟s boyfriend‟s bedroom”. This album is also available on CD (free copies to all music industry personnel – for a copy please see the No. below)
P.E Tripp is currently working on his next album, enjoying live performance, writing, collaborating and is interested in any opportunities to get more involved with the music industry, should they arise.
In 2010 Tripp also formed a duo with the talented South London artist Seb Blake, and collectively they are known as „Nichiren‟ the name taken from an ancient sect of Japanese Buddhism. They are currently writing and recording their first release.
Asides from music P.E Tripp is an experienced Coffee Barista, being able to deliver the perfect 30 second Espresso brew and specialising in Macchiato, Cappuccino, Americano & Latte. Tripp is aware that this may catch the attention of many management/label back room staff.
