Pipkin began playing deep blues in Errol Linton’s band in the 90s, has since worked with everyone from Ray Davies to David Byrne. He also maintains the long term keyboard position in trip hop pioneers Morcheeba with whom he recorded the classic Big Calm album back in 1998. He is a true songwriter, deeply influenced by the New Orleans sound, with piano skills that elicit comments such as “I can’t hold a candle to this guy. He’s a great piano player” – Jamie Cullum.
He has appeared at the prestigious “Piano Night” in New Orleans alongside legends Allen Toussaint, Ellis Marsalis and Jon Cleary. He has performed privately for the late film director Stanley Kubrick, and performed solo shows all around Europe and coast to coast in America. He has made many appearances on national radio, both as a performer and as an expert in the history of New Orleans piano. During the 2020/2021 he clocked up more than 120 livestream performances from his Essex home. Blues In Britain magazine describes him as “one of the world’s greatest exponents of New Orleans piano”
