Ian Janco, a versatile musician, songwriter, and producer, has embarked on a far flung journey fueled by his deep love for music. Growing up amidst the serene wilderness of Idaho's Rocky Mountains, Janco's passion for creating music blossomed from a young age.
During his teenage years in Santa Cruz, California, he immersed himself in the local music scene, playing in bands and eagerly testing out his own material at open mic nights. At the age of 18, he embarked on a busking adventure across Europe, eventually finding himself in Liverpool, where he had the privilege of attending Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
Janco hones his skills as a performer in countless venues throughout the UK. Along the way, he had the opportunity to share stages with renowned artists such as Emmylou Harris, Ward Thomas, and Wildwood Kin. His debut single, "Life," received an exclusive premiere on Graham Norton's Radio 2 show, and he garnered further support from such as BBC Radio London, Radio Merseyside, Wonderland, Clash, Acoustic Magazine and more. In addition to his solo pursuits, he has also crafted songs for other artists and composed tracks featured in Film & TV programs worldwide.
Janco's music is a culmination of his journey. His travels in America, Europe, and Asia are woven into the canvas of both his music and lyrics. His sound has drawn comparisons to Ray Lamontagne, Vance Joy, Sufjan Stevens, Stevie Appleton, and early Bon Iver. With a knack for vivid lyrics and memorable choruses, Ian is an artist with a lifelong commitment to his vocation, and certainly one to keep an eye on.
