Ian Cowell - Grandpa's Office

Session Guitarist and Mixing

Ian Cowell - Grandpa's Office on SoundBetter

Hello! I'm a session guitarist and mixing and mastering engineer in the Bay Area. I want to help motivated artists achieve the sound in their head and will make sure they not only get "their" sound, but something immediately enjoyable to a new audience.

I have worked with a diverse roster of musicians across genres as spread apart as rock, electronic, hip hop, ambient, funk, and pop music, just to name a few. I have over a decades worth of experience playing guitar and bass in original acts, cover groups, and filling in for others when needed. This has led me to doing session work once I started to build a home studio.

I went from a strictly guitar focus to diving deep into arranging, mixing, mastering, and helping others to achieve their creative vision, while also bringing an original and organic touch that lets you know I'm on your track, and it will sound like no one else. I have spent years developing an accessible and immediately recognizable guitar sound, as well as the ear for a proper mix that is tuned to sound pristine whether played back through the most expensive monitors or a Toyota Tercel with blown speakers.

Let's find out how we can make your unique project stand apart from the rest and keep listeners!
