One Inch Badge Presents
Big Piig is a once-seen-not-forgotten singer and rapper who draws on a unique and diverse upbringing. As a child she experienced a changing landscape of cultures, having been born in Spain and then moved to Ireland (before settling above the London pub her parents still own and run). And now, at just 19 years old, Biig Piig is unknowingly assimilating the kind of life experiences (which also include working as a poker dealer and a tequila bar waitress) that lend her music that blend of maturity, and youthful naivety.
With her widely-acclaimed debut tracks - 'Vice City', '24K' - Biig Piig has already won plaudits ranging from i-D, NME and Loud & Quiet to Fader ("the sweetest voice in South London" - UK Artists to Watch for 2018). With her debut EP set to drop this spring, it's all there even in the striking pseudonym of Biig Piig itself, which arrived after drunkenly reading the name off a pizza menu and relating to its unexpected charm. "The more I called myself it, the more it made sense. I'm just a mess really. Still cute tho."
