Biography

Sipo began working behind the scenes in recording studios and within two years became head engineer at a top facility, shaping sound for big name artists scoring platinum selling albums. The average person of this status might become too addicted to success and lucrative opportunities to leave this position, but Sipo had bigger creative plans all along. While helping other artists fulfill their creative dreams, he was hard at work writing his own songs and laying the foundation for his breakout as an indie/alternative rocker with Year Of The White Rose.

The title of Sipo’s first solo effort is rife with symbolism. The white rose is symbolic of death and rebirth, as in the shedding of his former self to pave the way for the emergence of his artistic debut. He previously recorded a three song EP (The Black Hills ) that included the hypnotic and pulsating “In Skin,” a track that finds new life on Year Of The White Rose. The creative fulfillment of those sessions inspired Sipo to leave his lucrative job, move outside Los Angeles to set up a studio on the ocean, and “go underground” where he wrote and recorded the nine powerful and compelling tracks that round out the collection. “Many people thought I was crazy to turn down the work,” he says, “but I thought I was crazy not to. I look at it like I purchased my own liberation instead of accumulating material things.”

Finances became a struggle at one point during this intensely creative period, but in true risk-taking indie artist fashion, Sipo resisted the temptation to get back into studio life.
