Kip Mac (they/them)

Hardcore, metal, grunge, and punk for classical piano.

That’s what Kip, aka Piano Punk, specializes in. Showcasing the melodies beneath the distortion and sharing the stories and cultural moments behind the songs, Piano Punk is for metal heads, classical aficionados, and those who know nothing about either.


Revisit rock’s most dismissed genre. The white boy dread locks, the rampant sexism, the dubious samples, the suburban angst, the chain wallets. What better way to revisit the highs and lows of this arrogant, often misogynistic, testosterone-fuelled music than through the lens of a queer, non-binary, classically-trained pianist and vocalist?

With artful arrangements that showcase the melodies beneath the distortion, Piano Punk covers some of your most favourite (and perhaps least favourite) songs by Disturbed, Evanescence, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Deftones, System of a Down, Linkin Park, and more!
