Pip working on album, appreciative of local support

Since his run on NBC's "The Voice" ended last month, Phillip "Pip" Arnold, the 20-year-old singer from Marietta, Ga. and son of St. Marys native Jim Arnold, has been keeping busy working on his first album. "[Releasing an] album is my number-one priority right now," Arnold said. "I want to get music out to [all my fans]." He recently started a page on Kickstarter, a website that allows individuals to pledge money to help fund independent projects. According to Arnold, fans can find out more information about this endeavor on Twitter, Facebook, and his website, www.pipmusic.com. "Kickstarter is great because it lets me ask the fans questions and get feedback from y'all, so I am very excited to get that up and running," Arnold said.
