On The Rise R&B Artist Pip Millett Is Set To Offer Up Her Confessional Lyricism @ Patterns Brighton This Week

One of the most compelling voices in UK R&B, Pip Millett, will play a show at Brighton Patterns, on Sunday, in support of her latest EP, Motion Sick.

Following on from her critically acclaimed offerings Running ft. Ghetts and Hard Life, the EP fleshes out Pip's thoughts on the wider world and her inner life.

Featuring unreleased tracks that see Pip's confessional lyricism through a prism of soul, boom-bam and hip-hop, offering refreshingly blunt thoughts on the state of the black experience in the UK, identity, loss and family legacy.

Speaking on the EP, Pip said: 

"I have often felt lost when things around me have started to change. In recent times I've realised I'm simply Motion Sick. 

"My core self is still there but without change there cannot be any growth. Motion Sick is about the various changes in my life. 

"With this change I have tried to find comfort in the simple things."


Pip's dignity and rare poise complement the underlining sense of an extremely special artist forging her own lane. 

Developing a reputation for her ability to reflect on political and social issues in a deeply personal and evocative way, 

Running tackled the realities of "being black in an unequal white, western world."

In only three years, the 23 year-old Manchester talent has developed into one of our most thoughtful homegrown voices, and with the release of Motion Sick, one of the UK's most exciting talents.
