British singer, songwriter and musician PIP MILLETT announces her first ever Australian shows as part of the when everything is better i’ll let you know tour. Millett will bring her live show to Melbourne’s 170 Russell on January 18, Brisbane’s Triffid on January 19 and Sydney’s Metro Theatre on January 20 and will be joined by special guest Shanae.
Born and raised in Greater Manchester — spending the majority of her childhood in Marple — Pip Millett shares that her early experiences of loss and grief played a huge part in her resonating with and being obtusely aware of her emotions from her infancy. “They’ve really helped shape my ability to songwrite,” she acknowledges in an inquisitive and animated Northern twang. “I find it easier to say what I can't physically express to people with words.”
In 2022, Pip Millett wraps up her highly anticipated debut album in the moniker When Everything Is Better, I'll Let You Know, acknowledging her growth personally, now coping healthily with anxiety as well as depression, as well as overcoming trauma. “It’s years on from my first break up, which I learned so much from,” she says thankfully, taking a deep breath and wiping her head figuratively on Zoom. “It’s also years on from my first therapy session; I’ve just come so far, it was so difficult to let go of someone and focus on my mental health first.”
With sold-out dates across Europe and the eyes of both the industry and the UK firmly on her, Pip Millett proves firmly on When Everything Is Better, I’ll Let You Know that blossoming authentically and true-to-form is a concoction that audiences are yearning for more of. Once released, she’ll prove that all of her talents and industry-nods are only the beginnings of the next homegrown legacy act in the making. “The North needs the light shone on it,” she says earnestly. “And to be part of this current moment is beautiful. It’s time it opened up and allowed us in.”
