In short, my music is a mix of blues, roots, R&B, and soul.
I play as a solo singer/songwriter with my guitar, vocals, and looping pedal. This lets me display my full range of art.
Whether he is performing at popular venues in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Nashville or heading up programs teaching high school students about music, Joe Filipovich’s dedication to music is without question. Joe released his debut album, “Release”, in early 2015, and since then, the Minnesota-based blues artist has enjoyed radio play in the United States and throughout Europe. He is currently planning a European tour, which will include stops in France, Germany, and several other countries.
Not only content with performing, Joe also serves as the chairman of Blues for Kids, a non-profit music education program created by the Minnesota Blues Society. The program is known for organizing workshops at schools and festivals with the mission of teaching children of all ages about the Blues music genre. Part of Joe’s work includes the creation of a six-week workshop designed for the Woodbury East Ridge High School Jazz Band near St. Paul.
My mission is to write music, perform my art, and share it with others in a unique, organic, and expressive way. We need to express ourselves, help others express themselves, and collaborate with each other. I also make instruments from old antique motor oil cans. I turn them into electric guitars and make music with them them. I like to do this with bluesy influences and improvising on guitar and teaching others how to be free and improvise.
