After a decade of active participating in music scene as a record producer and engineer for countless local projects, Filip decides to venture off into a solo singer-songwriter effort. In his own studio he composes music which radiates with simplicty, minimalism and estetics of some past times, when rock and pop music wasn’t so complicated and over-saturated.
The project continues in 2008. while living in New York City, where he demoes and records first original songs and starts performing live. After returning home next year, FIPA starts a series of sunday intimate shows in small clubs and pubs, but due to great interest he forms a backing band in form of a basic rock trio. This adds a new perspective and egde to already a unique expression, playing in both solo and band formation depending on the setting. The band performs on various local and internationally acclaimed festivals such as FAMUS, SMS, IFUS, EXIT, GITARIJADA ZAJECAR while finishing up debut album. So when he’s not sitting at the mixing board and when he’s on the other side of the glass, Fipa creates one diverse range of music but with constant personal and emotional stamp thanks to indie-americana and pop rock genres.
