The G Flip explosion has been as colossal as it has been wondrous.

Bursting out of her bedroom and into the wide world with her shimmering pop hits, the Melbourne singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist has inspired a new wave of innovators: unfiltered, driven and refreshing in their passion.

Her self-produced debut single ‘About You’ was a cathartic anthem born from her “hectic, toxic, cinematic” on-off relationship, and was the first taste of her epic drumming prowess. Her debut album further showcased the new voice of a generation: loud, proud and vivacious. Come ride the G Flip train!
