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!

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!
