A quintessential Sagittarius, Ian’s writing style holds no punches and is as honest and inward-diving as his outward personality can be (honestly sometimes he just doesn't stop talking). Ian began writing music and lyrics after taking a poetry class in eighth grade when his teacher Michael Millburn presented the class with a poem titled “The Wind Cries Mary”. Not realizing who the author was at the time Ian fell in love with the lyrics and discovered the magic of Jimi Hendrix in reverse order. This led to learning guitar and composing material of his own. He formed a funk-rock band with a few of his friends called Tuesday Night Jam Sessions named after a weekly open mic they would perform at. This group melded into a new project called All in Blind when high school ended. After a few years of spearheading AIB Ian moved on to work with acclaimed producer Jeff Gitelman on solo material which eventually led way to joining forces with Gabrielle Ross and forming the genre-bending collective WHATEVER WE ARE. In 2019 they released their debut EP entitled “Limbo” and embarked on a six week North American tour supporting Witt Lowry. During the pandemic they released their first full length album “Don’t Go Home” and are set to release a follow up later in 2021.
