"A folk/roots GEM". SoundProof Magazine

"Pippus is a refined tunesmith with serious pop hooks". Vancouver Province Newspaper

"'This City' sounds like the midnight musings of a man coming to terms with the outcome of his life." Earshot Magazine, April 2/09

"Born a Genius is Pippus’ second full length album. It appears that he has exorcised a few of his demons after the lonely pre-dawn lament of his first album, and he’s got stuff to say.
He has a gift for making us believe that he’s been down road and around the block, and is still kickin’ it." Earshot Magazine, Sept. 17/10

“[Howl At The Moon is...] a fantastic album. If you’re going to buy an album this year, go and buy this one”. Bob Blues, UK Radio Host, Jan. 15/13

Crush The Fear
Like this anti-Trump song says, “It’s not a time to be silent”. Don’t let him divide us. 2018 Golden Kayak Contender!

Of course I'm referring to Crush The Fear, which I didn't mention in my comment haha

So many musicians want to write an important song like this one right now. I know I feel so strongly and I've trashed plenty of my own ideas for not being plain and powerful enough without sounding political and trite. You have nailed it on every level - simple truth with words, music and intent. I really admire what you've done here.

Station Links
Seizeure Radio   Even if my song wasn't picked up by this quirky station I would link to it cuz I like the guy's taste in music. And his original reviews.
JackRadio   Wide ranging play list. Jack has put me in some stellar company. Thanks Jack.
Voices of Angels   A dream come true - I'm on the same playlist as Pete Townshend. Thanks IAC and Voices of Angels for this.
Gotcha by the BLUES   Blues power. What an honour to be included.
casual favorites for wending nights   Wending nights? Whatever. I got added and so I'm linking to this playlist.
Radio FTM   Playlist includes "She Had the Runs". Huh? Crazy motherfuckers but what the hey. Indies rock. I'll check them out and get back to you on this.
BeST for MY TAsTE   Morcheeba alert!
William Miller Vol1   Another station featuring the ubiquitous and fabulous Vukicevich guy. What about a stage name Ben?
Heartland   My kind of mix: John Prine rockin' out, Sheryl Crow, and a whole lot of indies worth listening to. Thanks Heartland.
music for wintertime   Very different offering of tunes. Glad to have "Man of Constant Sorrow" included here.
This Just In II   Proud to be considered part of "the best of what's new and fresh". Thanks very much.
The Ultimate Playlist Sampler   Ultimate is right. Longest play list I've seen. An embarrassment of riches. And me. Thanks UPS.
THE ORCHARD   Adam has kindly added me to his very eclectic lineup. I appreciate his comments too.
Wish I could play like that!   Once again, I'm amazed at the excellent company I find myself in. Sure is a lot of great talent out there...
Les Canadian Chansons   A fellow Canuck. Only three songs on this station (as of this writing) and it's an honour to be one of them.
Barefoot on a Dirt-Floor   my kind of acoustic blues. "Constant Sorrow" is in good company here.
To the Moon!   I'm currently situated right next to EmmyLou on this station. I'm loving that.
Spin Doctor Radio   The Doctor will see you now. Seriously, a very tasty collection of tunes here.
IAC Artists Compilation DMD   I'm proud to included on this compilation CD for War Child.
JUST LISTEN!   Gina French has some great songs of her own, and has built up an interesting playlist.
Country Folk & Blue Shades of Grass   Once again, it's very encouraging to be picked up by another IAC member somewhere out there in the world. Thanks Lauri!
How Blue Can You Go   The place to go when you want to get the real deal on the blues.
Words & Music   On another list with the ubiquitous Maria Daines.
Folk Acoustic Americana   Confession: I'm linking to this page cuz I want them to add me. Plus there are some great tunes here.
Internal Affairs   Interesting idea for a station. And the strong selection of tunes reflects that.
Bob Dylan Tribute   Cool idea for a page. Dylan's influences can't be denied.
Forest of Azure   Another station supporting the War Child (Holland) project.
Midnight on frisco bay   Careful you don't run into Alcatraz... More great songs here. So many songs, so little time. Alphastates Alert!1 Angel Kiss is on the rotation.
Smile About It   Says the songs selected are "quirky and creative, with personality". I didn't know "Nothing Left To Say" could fit this description, but what the hey...
Nice Vocals   Nice double entendre on the name.... get it?.... Great mix of artists here too.
All My Love   This station manager has good ears - and not just cuz I got added!
Music with meaning   Some excellent song choices here. Vincenzo has a lot of heart and it shows in his playlist.
1969   One of the more interesting music mixes I've found on IAC. Great photo of Keith Richard too.
Chantelle Black Radio   Chantelle Black reminds me why I gravitated towards rock n' roll all those years ago. Velvets meet Shangrilas. Tough and cocky.
Music with meaning   Vincenzo runs a good playlist. Go Italia!
Gyroscope Folk   Beth has a lot of soul and it shows in her choice of artists.
The message(I get It)   I get it too.
Bent and Blue (and Sometimes Shattered)   J.P. Sharpe presents "low down, stripped down blues". We're on the same wave length,music-wise.
HUGH'S NEWS   Clever matching of songs with current events. Original and fun.
An Eclectic mix of 40 beautiful songs   yep. that says it all... glad to be included.
Sunshine Coast   The Sunshine Coast is an area north of Vancouver. Joni Mitchell lives up there sometimes.
Songs of Love   Nothing but love baby, the best kind. "Loving By Design" found a home here.
Can U Dig It  
The SOUND Cafe   Auset runs this station. She's an excellent singer/songwriter and she has some great song on her station.
Voices -Outside The Box   Here's a fellow that takes the time to listen. And comment on the songs in a thoughtful way. Nice!
Fresh Earwax 3   Glad to see "Le Cadre Photo" getting added here.
  The name says it all. Proud to be included in the list of winners with "Le Cadre Photo".
Canada Rocks!   Canada RAWKS
Words and Music Gets The Blues   Nothing but the blues
Featured Songs   I'm on the Hitline finally with "I'm Mad"
Indigo Station   I like it here. Some great tunes, hand picked with care.
The Gabby Station   good to see IAC is still happening. Thanks gabby for the add.
  sound matters as a matter of fact.
Page Links
Rachel Fuller  
Linda Perry   Great to see that Linda Perry is using IAC.
Miss Vicky  
Two Gallants   I like these guys. I heard them do a song on an UnCut sampler CD. I forget the name of it but it was really catchy.
PIP and MERRY   Here's a station with good taste. Mellow and soulful. And an obvious connection to my name.
  Great talent from Scotland. Land of my grandfather on my mother's side.
J. Patrick Sharpe   Straightforward and honest tunes from a guy who sounds a bit like a mellow Lou Reed. And JP added me to his Acoustic Meltdown station too.
The Man With No Band   Some original and honest tunes here.
Nat Jay   Great singer. Have a listen.
melodygardot   Great talent. A cut above........
Morcheeba   Check out the banjo on lighten up. Not what you would expect from Morcheeba.
Joe Jackson   He's the man.

sugarplum fairies   A new discovery for me (thanks to Father Time for pointing them out). But obviously a well recognized act here at IAC.
The Long Winters  
Fionn Regan  
Nadia von Hahn   Nadia is my friend.
Martin Sexton   A real good singer/songwriter.
  My co-writer on "One Shot" (posted here) and a few other songs too.
