Bob Marley, Gil Scott-Heron, Stevie Wonder, Bobby Womack, Marvin Gaye and Joni Mitchell were all regulars on the evenings' playlists, flooding Pip's ears with the sounds of music's most esteemed songwriters at a formative age.
"They all seemed to like it," she says in a Mancunian drawl, picked up from the Manchester suburb of Marple where she spent most of her childhood.
"Sometimes they would tell me what to put on and I would keep that in my memory, then go back and listen to it myself."
Now twenty-three and three EPs deep into her career as a singer-songwriter, those early influences echo throughout Pip's music, which weaves Mitchell's confessional lyricism and Gaye's soul vocals together for a contemporary yet timeless sound.
There have been some teachers, Pip stresses, who left a positive impression on her.
"I had a great guitar teacher and a great English teacher. They're the two things I combined to do music," she says, smiling at memories of those who helped her find confidence as "a weird, awkward, teenage girl."
Pip's gratitude is palpable:
"They deserve so much more credit. It's crazy to think that I'm in this career because of my teachers."
Music has served as an emotional outlet for Pip, her songwriting brought to life with considered reflections on her feelings and experiences.
"I make sure all my feelings are spot-on in each of the songs," she explains.
"I don't like the thought of lying to myself."
