Where do even start in trying to describe Ivan Klipstein? The very notion of genre-jumping seems too tame to even begin to talk about Ivan or his new CD, "Lifestyle." It has elements of rock, pop, Brit-rock, rap, gospel, and just about every other musical form of the last 50 years. And, the amazing thing is the grace and excellence that he brings to this highly polished and fully realized project. The CD flows perfectly and really does a great job of showcasing Klipsteins's formidable songwriting skills.
Lifestyle! (released March 2001) was recorded in Toronto and Madison, and features the rhythm-keeping of the three Baird Brothers (who have since gone on to become Feist’s backing band, both live and on record), as well as many great Madison players (Steve Burke, DJ Anonymous, Angela McJunkin, Alison Figi, and more). The colorfully singular results found Mr. Klipstein embarking on extensive DIY performing tours following it’s release: All over the US and Canada a few times over, as well as dates in Japan in the UK.
