A Colorado transplant from small-town Illinois, singer-songwriter Ian Mahan has spent the last
decade writing and performing music for the sole purpose of connecting to his audience. His
acoustic-style songs, with melodies ranging from mellow to upbeat, are marked by
characteristic lyrical vulnerability.
Though he attended piano lessons from a young age, Ian did not find his true instrumental
passion until his 18-year- old self picked up a guitar. Ian’s high school and college years were
spent exploring music in the form of countless different bands, ultimately, establishing himself
as a solo artist in 2008.
In 2011, Ian produced his first, self-titled EP with his drummer, band director and long-time
friend, JD Raab. Four years later, Ian released "Tiger Lily,” his sophomore album which marries
the singer-songwriter genre with pop-style, electronic elements.
Released earlier this year, Ian’s six-song EP, “Rockford,” showcases his evolving musical style
grounded in emotional transparency and whispery acoustics. The album is a collection of
curated songs that highlight life’s joys and miseries – inspired by breakups, Rocky Balboa and
everything in between.
Ian has performed with notable artists such as Ryan Adams, Leon Bridges, Vanessa Carlton,
Howie Day, Nina Storey, The Rocket Summer, Parachute, Stu Larsen, Tyler Hilton, Christina Perri
and Joe Brooks.
