Ivan Penezić, singer of Pravila Igre, was born on December 10, 1992 in Zagreb. His love for music was inherited by the piano duo, who had been teaching piano and piano music for three years now. As a little boy, Ivan was embarrassed to sing until the moment he “gave a voice” for the first time and in high school he sang in the school band. Then a new love was born and John directed all his musical affinities to singing and perfecting the voice. Singing Samouk, tried various techniques and methods of singing, and then they started their first public appearances, one of which was greeted with a trembling forever and realised he wanted to be a singer.
He graduated from the Secondary School of Graphics, and after the completion of the school Ivan founded the Baby Blue band, and from 2013 to 2016 they acted as a club band. Since 2017, Ivan Penezić has been a member of the Game Rules Group.
Leisure is like recreation, sports and socializing with friends. He says his cooking is relaxed, and his challenge is cooking exotic and unusual dishes.
Form is maintained by hiking, cycling or racing in the company of your dog. John says he simply loves animals.
