Pippa Hoover is a Raleigh-based indie folk singer/songwriter and cellist with a soulful sound and a flair for writing smart, introspective lyrics. Her songs are heartfelt, quirky, and edgy – you’ll hear songs about black holes and breakups, hummingbirds and haunted houses. Her sound features rich, classical-based cello lines and catchy, folksy melodies with the occasional hint of pop punk. Fans say their music is “authentic, real music,” “wistful and pensive,” and has “some of the most intellectually clever lyrics ever written.”
Since April of 2014, Pippa and guitarist Gary Adams have been playing in the Triangle as the Pippa Hoover Duo. They were Little Raleigh Radio’s show Acoustic Muse, giving an interview and a live performance of four songs. They won second place in the Grassroots Band Competition at the Fall 2014 Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance (Pippa’s second second place win). They are currently putting the final touches on their first EP.
