He was one of the main founders and owners of the highly acclaimed and successful Brygga Studio in Trondheim during the 80’s and 90’s. He took a self-imposed break from the music scene during the beginning of the new century, but he is now back again for full as a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist.

The album “Dark Angels and White Demons” was released in 2016, “A Fire Through the Night” in 2018, “Translucent Dreams of an Opaque Mind” in 2020 while the latest album “Storyteller” was released in 2022. Filip Dahl’s music spans from melodic prog rock via blues rock to harmonic and symphonic rock, clearly revealing his roots and influences by bands like Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Kansas, Marillion and Dream Theather.
Critics have especially highlighted and acclaimed Filip Dahl’s lead guitar work, as it is characterised by a distinct style and tone which is contributing to a very clear and easily recognisable signature. His musical journey is constantly continuing and there will be several new releases in 2023.
