Philipp Bernhard better kown as Calipo is a lyrical HipHop/Rap artist from Germany. With his heartfelt lyrics, passionate vocals, driving beats and a healthy sense of self-irony his music speaks for itself. He writes his music from a very honest and personal perspective, crafting engaging stories about his own life and experiences. To catch the listernes and guide them directly into the lyrics, so they can relate and reflect the songs to themselves, is one of his most important goals.
Calipo was born on December 5, 1990. He discovered his passion for music as he was only ten years old, playing the guitar and doing vocals. As a child born and raised in the 90s, his main influences were many artists of the Rock, Metal and Rap genres like Limp Bizkit, Eminem, Slipknot, Dr. Dre, Korn, Snoop Dogg, Metallica, Wu-Tang Clan and Deftones just to name a few.
Calipo was in the Metal scene for the last 10 years and played in many bands since his teenage years. He is best known as the former frontman of Neberu.
After all this years in the Metal scene and a two years break from the music business, Calipo is finally back. Now he acts out his love for other music genres and shows the world that you can do everything you want to and you can do any music you love.
His debut HipHop EP Gamechanger was just the beginning.
