Ladyhawke aka Pip Brown has been wowing the music industry since she cut her teeth playing in Wellington band Two Lane Blacktop and Sydney act Teenager. She started releasing tracks as Ladyhawke in 2008, she was signed to a major label, moved to the UK, and her eponymous solo debut album made her hot property across the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.  

She toured relentlessly, and picked up multiple NZ Music Awards, ARIAs, and nominations for Brit Awards, MTV Awards, and NME Awards.

Fast forward to 2021, Ladyhawke has just released a brand new single with Broods, and a new album is on the way in September. She joins Charlotte for a chat about new music, and her incredible journey both overseas and abroad.

"We’re pulling together a maramataka/calendar of special events such as Matariki and Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, to create awareness and opportunity for waiata punctuations around the country, throughout 2021”.
