Nomination for Brown

Ladyhawke continues to make entertainment headlines with a 2009 Shockwaves NME Award nomination for Best Solo Artist, alongside Laura Marling, Lightspeed Champion, Jay-Z and Pete Doherty. The Awards will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Brixton Academy on February 25. Spin magazine writes: “Ladyhawke, aka Pip Brown, will soon have plenty of chances to hone her craft — she kicks off a UK tour with the Ting Tings in February, and then she’s planning to do ‘heaps and heaps’ of US shows. She’s also working on a new album she promises will be much ‘rawer and not as tech.’ At least for now. ‘I know I’ll change my mind,’ she says. ‘Maybe it’ll turn out to be a hip-hop album.'” Late last year, for their Spring ’09 show, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel sent models down the catwalk to Ladyhawke’s Paris is Burning.
