September of 2014, Pip the Pansy entered Chasepark Transduction Studios in Athens, Georgia with two songs in hand and a simple determination to pursue a career in music. Over the next three weeks, she proceeded to write, record, and produce 10 additional songs in a creative flourish that ultimately led to the release of her ambitious debut CD, Hi. An accomplished photographer, artist, model, and classically trained flutist, Pip devoted the next year crafting a sound and look that took her from unknown to headlining act at the historic Georgia Theater in Athens. With her latest release , Apathy and Good Books , and upcoming EP, Royal Blue Daydream, Pip the Pansy continues to turn industry heads with her prolific writing, her visual command, and an overwhelmingly joyous presence.
“…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…”
-Emily McBride - VINYL MAG
After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, Georgia, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s R&B capital of Atlanta. Working as a wedding singer to pay rent, Burchfield played with some of Atlanta’s finest, meeting the likes of the Terminus Horns. Sam and the band have now made ripples in the southeast, opening for soul-phenom St. Paul & The Broken Bones, emerging pop star Ben Rector, and Athens pals Family & Friends.
Their debut self-titled EP combines dense pop harmonies, transcribed conversations, and unlikely synths (vacuum cleaners & screeching subways) for something “ambitious and genre-bending.” By gathering these seemingly mundane artifacts of life and putting them on a pedestal, Eugene Marie’s music creates a beautifully strange impression of Brooklyn and its people.
