Many steel guitarists play too loud, too much, or both. My skills lie in the art of playing tastefully, and for the song—listening to and supporting the vocals. Additionally, I have national touring experience including performances at the Stagecoach Festival, as well as opening for Chris Stapleton, and Trampled by Turtles.

I am a fast-working pedal steel guitarist and utility musician based in the San Francisco Bay Area. There, I have earned a reputation as the go-to steel guitarist in San Francisco's storied roots/Americana and country music scenes. In addition to pedal steel guitar, I am also available to record guitar, Dobro, lap steel, mandolin.

I am available for in-studio or remote session work and touring opportunities. Am a great hang and have stellar references.

I looking forward to working with you!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Ian did an awesome job on pedal steel and had a very fast turnaround!

    Ian provided just the feel my tracks needed. Excellent communication, responsive to feedback, quick turnaround. Had a great experience and would be happy to work with him again in the future. Thanks Ian!
