Described by the popular regional radio station 91.9 WFPK as “creating an expansive, stadium-ready rock sound,” Ian’s craftsmanship continues to resonate with fans across the globe.

"California Nights" promises to deliver this signature sound with a fresh twist. The track is a collaboration with illustrious artists, including songwriter Kenny Schwartz of Los Stellarians, and features the engineering and mixing prowess of Jon Graber, known for his work with bands like NOFX and All American Rejects. Reade Wolcott provided additional engineering support, while the mastering was handled by multi-Grammy Award-winning engineer Alan Douches from West West Side Music, renowned for his work with artists like Sufjan Stevens and Fleetwood Mac. Adding to the vibrant texture of the song are the backing vocals by Jackie Miclau of Mt. Joy.
