Welcome Count Bounce!
We are excited to announce the signing of our favorite producer/songwriter/MC (amongst a multitude of other things) Countbounce (AKA Pip Norman). Blank Tape will also be looking after Bounce County studios in Melbourne’s inner north. Pip has a vast history as an artist in the studio and on stage as a member of Melbourne Hip Hop outfit TZU. Pip has producer & co-writer credits with the likes of Sparkadia, Ash Grunwald, Urthboy, Daniel Merriweather, Sietta, Texture Like Sun (Blank Tape stable mate), Bobby Flynn, Mantra, PEZ, Illzilla, and rapper 360 just to name a few.
Before 2012 is out there will have been 4 huge releases from Sietta, TLS, Urthboy, & Hoy.
Pip Norman enjoys the rare status of being short-listed three times for the prestigious Australian Music Prize (2010, 2009 and 2007 for work with TZU and Urthboy). He has won an APRA award (Best Blues and Roots with Ash Grunwald, ‘Breakout’), an AIR award (Urthboy, ‘Spitshine’), ABMF Song of the Year (‘Fish Out Of Water’), and has been nominated for two ARIAs, two AIRs, and an APRA, among others.
“I’ve been a fan of all things Pip for a long time and am pretty thrilled to be working with him in this capacity. Looking forward to some big things in 2013” – Cesar Rodrigues (Blank Tape Music)
