Pixie Geldof will be following in the footsteps of her father after she signed a record deal this week.
The 24-year-old model and singer announced the news on her Instagram and Twitter profiles yesterday, posting, “Last night I signed to @StrangerRecords lets do this!”, along with a picture of her and members of the label.
Pixie, who is the daughter of Boom Town Rats singer-songwriter Sir Bob Geldof, will be joining Lana Del Rey, Charlotte OC and Seye who are already signed to Stranger Records.
This isn't Pixie's first foray into music, she is the lead singer of the band Violet. The group released their debut single featuring the double A-sides ‘YOU’ and ‘I Come Undone’ back in May 2012.
Violet were signed to Luv Luv Luv Records and took their cue from Courtney Love’s band Hole.
The cream of the music industry including One Direction, Bono, Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran are going into the studio this morning to record a new version of the Band Aid charity single.
You can prepare for a Bob Geldof interview, but you cannot prepare for Bob Geldof himself. Not that he isn't how you imagine: he is, but more so. Taller, louder, funnier, better read, more sweary, more informed, more opinionated. More everything.
