Ian is a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, and a record producer/engineer. Maybe you know him from his band Radiant Life Perspective. Or you might have heard one of his songs on a popular TV show like "Finding Carter", "Grey's Anatomy", "The Fosters", "Teen Mom", or "One Tree Hill". You also might have heard one of his compositions in a trailer for "The Bible", or "Vikings", on the History Channel. Or maybe you shazamed one of his original songs after hearing it in films like "The Oranges", "Ten Things I Hate About Life", or "Transparent". Or it's always possible you followed a link from one of the popular YouTube videos he's scored, for JonTron, or "Smart Guys", or one of his own YouTube music videos for "We Can't Stay Here", or "Strange Gifts". Wherever you came from, this is that guys website. Contact : firstname.lastname@example.org
2018 was a GREAT year of producing and working with artists. There isn’t time in the day to list all the thanks and talk about how grateful I am to have worked with so many incredible musicians, but a few highlights would be working on Good Old War’s new record, “Part of Us” , mastering beautiful records by ULAS, TAVER, Asher Roth, and Thrills , and mixing some phenomenal new songs by Danny Black.
One major personal highlight was playing out and recording with my new band – Nuna and the Wayward Spirit. This record was easily my favorite recording experience of my entire life, and the songs my wife Bobbie and I wrote for it are some of my favorite work we’ve ever gotten to do together.
But alas, 2019 will be a year of returning to my commitment to songwriting. I’ve got a new record I’m working on, to be released as a solo album. Upcoming writing projects for some incredible and exciting films and TV shows… and a few great NEW writers I’m working with this year. It’s gonna be a blast.
Super excited “Smart Guys” (a web series by the guys from the Continue? channel) has finally been released! I did the theme as well as the original music. The show is hilarious and the title sequence came out awesome!
Awesome email from a fan.. this stuff makes me wanna write!
I keep getting emails/msgs/comments every week from people who listen religiously to the songs I co-wrote (w/ Bobbie Parker) for The Oranges soundtrack now TWO YEARS AGO! The soundtrack continues to sell super well and we keep getting plays/views from it. I’m really grateful to anyone who has contacted me about those two songs (“We Can’t Stay Here” and “Come Home”). They mean so much to me as they were the first songs I wrote for a wide-release feature film. It makes my day every time someone tells me they like them.
Lastly, been writing a new record with a group of guys. It’s pretty folk rocky with a side of roots/blues influence. Super fun. It will be done and recorded by the end of November for a end of fall release and it’s probably the best group of songs I’ve ever written. It’ll be up on a fresh bandcamp page i will post here! =)
Hey guys, so earlier this month my band RLP quietly released a new full length and I gotta say thank you to everyone who pre-ordered and ordered the record! What a pleasant surprise. I hope you’re enjoying it. If you haven’t heard it yet, here it is!
I’ve also been working closely with the dudes from youtube’s popular Continue? channel, writing the theme song and scoring their new web series Smart Guys, as well as writing a theme song for a new pilot I can’t yet talk about, and working on RLP’s NEXT album “Pale Blue Lights” due out later this year. Thanks for visiting!!
Haven’t been on the net much lately as I’ve been working on my new record, but back in September I wrote a ridiculous parody theme song for my pal JonTron’s fictitious coffee company, “Jon Tron Coffee”. If you don’t know JonTron he’s one of the funniest and loudest voices on youtube, with over 1.3 million subscribers well earned! Check out the song here!
This week I was thrilled to see we’d been featured on Entertainment Weekly’s “Best Music-on-TV Moments” for Grey’s Anatomy – they write –
“Earlier in the ep, Philly indie outfit Radiant Life perspective turned up the energy with a videogame-y take on Violent Femmes’ 1983 tune, which saw Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) return with a ring on it.”
