Biography

Pip Proud (Philip Proud, 1947–2010) was an Australian singer/songwriter, poet, novelist and dramatist whose idiosyncratic song-poems gained a cult following in Australia in the 1960s and around the world in the 1990s-2000s. He was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1947 and is the brother of the well-known artist Geoffrey Proud.

Proud's unusual musical style has been likened to that of Britain's Syd Barrett, though he was unfamiliar with Barrett's work when he recorded three albums of his own songs in the late Sixties. The first, De Da De Dum' (Grendel, 1967) was privately produced and only about 50 copies were pressed. He was signed to the Philips label and his first LP for them Adreneline and Richard (Philips, 1968) reprised most of the songs from his first LP, some of them with a full band backing added without his involvement. After recording his second album A Bird In The Engine (Philips, 1969) he travelled to Britain to further his career. He ceased working with the Philips label and did not release any further recordings until the mid-1990s.
