Past members

Flipsyde is an American alternative hip hop group from Oakland, California.



Flipsyde currently consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Steve Knight, lead guitarist Dave Lopez, and rapper The Piper (Jinho Ferreira). Their 2005 debut album, We the People, was released by Interscope Records and featured the singles "Happy Birthday" and "Someday", with the latter chosen as a theme song by NBC for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games,[1] and appeared on the soundtrack for the 2008 film Never Back Down.[2]

Flipsyde's 2008 follow-up album, State of Survival, featured production by Akon[3] and a minor hit in "When It Was Good", but the record did not chart. The group was subsequently dropped by Interscope Records. Flipsyde released two EP's independently in 2011 and 2012. The group is currently working on a new project together.

Beyond Flipsyde

Ferreira is a graduate of San Francisco State University and has written two unproduced screenplays,[4] one of which won a screenwriting prize at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2009.[5]
