Ian Lander is back on our stage, and his sound marries the old with the new. He seamlessly blends a myriad of traditional American and world musical styles with a contemporary look and feel. From New Orleans to Chicago, Appalachia to Andalusia, Ian absorbs and adopts wide influences and puts them together in a way all his own. A fiery guitarist, he is never afraid to plunge into the deep end of heavily improvisational music with the Ian Lander Band. Attention to dynamics, space, and tones allow the group to explore a wide range of emotions through sound. Ian shows a strikingly different side during intimate acoustic shows, where his sweet and honest vocals connect with the audience over sophisticated acoustic guitar backing. Whatever musical cliff Ian jumps off of, he always seems to land on his feet.
