Biography

Borislav Mitic was born in Belgrade, Serbia. He started to play at the age of 11 after getting his first guitar from his grandfather. Initially Borislav was inspired by “The Beatles” but he quickly moved on to emulating bands and artists like Deep Purple, AC/DC, Dire Straits, Jimi Hendrix, Mike Oldfield,… etc. Borislav was very much self taught from the beginning learning licks from records of his favourite players.

The “Shred Boom” of the 80’s brought to the forefront new players like Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, Allan Holdsworth, Gary Moore, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani,… Their groundbreaking and dazzling development of guitar techniques sent Borislav (like many young guitarists at the time) back to practising. Having reached a new plato of proficiency on his instrument after a few years of “wood shedding” Borislav became “the talk of town” in Belgrade music circles. This was due to his skills as well as his young age at which he developed them - he was 17. Very soon he started to play in some local bands and perform in clubs. However, he continued to evolve in various music styles such as blues, jazz rock, heavy metal,… But the biggest inspiration at this time came to him from classical music and works of masters like Bach, Liszt, Paganini, Mendelsohn, Tchaikowsky,…to name a few. He channeled these influences to his first instrumental demo recordings which won a “new talent” radio contest and this led to Borislav’s collaboration with National Radio as a session guitarist/composer at the age of 20.
