Nancie Schipper is back with ‘When You Get Home’

Nancie Schipper; we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… she’s one of our favourite young regional artists.

Beginning her music career at the tender age of 12 where she performed her first pub gig, the Warrnambool singer-songwriter has spent the better part of the last seven years working her way around the local scene, driven by her passion to continually develop her stage skills time and time again.

Now, she’s back with her new single ‘When You Get Home’ and is celebrating with two single launch shows in Melbourne and her hometown of Warrnambool.

‘When You Get Home’ was recorded and produced by John Castle (Vance Joy, Thelma Plum, Angie McMahon). It is the first single following ‘Long Fall’, which was added to spot rotation on triple j and shortlisted her as one of 6 finalists chosen from more than 1000 high school acts in triple j’s Unearthed High competition.

Drawing similarities to the likes of Middle Kids and Angie McMahon, ‘When You Get Home’ boasts a jangly folk-rock sound that’ll get you groovin’ along no worries, and then by the third or fourth listen you’ll slow down and take note of lyrical content that shows wisdom well beyond her years. An immediate must-suss for anyone who likes telling people they listened to musicians before they got massive, because your window is surely closing.

On the single, Nancie says, “this song is about checking in on all your friends and not letting them deal with things alone. A friend had asked me to send her a text when I got home safe and it got me thinking about how powerful friendship has been in my life and how much I value it. We all want our friends to succeed and would do anything to help them so it can be hard to watch them go through hard times.”

‘When You Get Home’ will be released tomorrow, May 24.

In bittersweet news, the headline show at The Loft in Warrnambool on Friday June 7th will be one of the last shows at the venue. Nancie will also be playing her first band show in Melbourne at the Wesley Anne on Friday June 21st.

Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
