Join Fizz on Wednesday, October 25th @ 8:30PM to hear their conversation with Australian singer, songwriter, producer, drummer, and musician, G Flip, ahead of their show at Rickshaw Stop in SF on October 26th.
Originally a session drummer by trade, G Flip’s music starts from the drums up. Lyrically, they write of relationships, heartbreak, and acceptance. Authentic, relatable and always energetic, G Flip is a bonafide powerhouse.
Says G Flip, “When I was searching for an idol as a kid, I couldn’t find someone that resonated with me. All the females on the screen were sexy or sexualised. I struggled with my sexual identity and gender identity for years and years because there wasn’t representation for me when I was younger.I wish I had a non binary, gay, lead singing drummer to watch because it would have calmed the dark, confused voices in my head that told me I didn’t belong anywhere as my authentic self. If I am able to calm those voices for someone else, my job on this planet is done.
The new music hits harder: there are more drums, it’s tougher, there’s angst, there’s way more rock influence which actually makes sense as that’s always been what I grew up listening to and playing. It’s grittier. I wanna be a voice for the non binary/queer community. I wanna fill the gap as the next lead singing drummer. I wanna make art that matters.”
New album, DRUMMER, is out now on Future Classic Records.
