Born in the Philippines, raised everywhere from Kuwait, to France, to San Francisco, Genesis Ian is the embodiment of diversity and cultural richness... not just of person, but of sound. A singer/songwriter/guitarist/keyboardist/percussionist/producer, Genesis brings an array of talent to a variety of genres and styles, including Hip-Hop, Rock, Punk, New Wave, and Reggae. Son of musician Ramone Tzunakus, Genesis has been surrounded by extraordinary musical talent his entire life and career.

Genesis Ian moved from Philly to L.A. in 2001. He has spent his time going to school for audio engineering and working side jobs to make ends meet. In 2002 he debut his first show @ The Gig in Melrose blvd., ever since then he has produced 3 street albums, and 9 albums for other major and indie artist. He has worked for Baby Face's label as a studio musician, produced for music / film production organizations while actively playing every venue in the greater Los Angeles area. Being a solo artist is a reality that Genesis Ian had to bite considering every show he's performed had a different line up for his band. But instead of looking at the down side he looked at the advantages at this revolving door of musicians. With some he has let go and with the best of them he has kept close relationships.
Drummer Dion Nueble whom has played for numerous artist such as Red Man, performed with bands in Jay Leno's tonight shows, Wutang.. to name a few has been a part of Genesis Ian's revolving temp bands since 2007. Bassist, Toly Ramirez who has been signed to Universal 2 years ago from his previous band has joined forces with G.I.'s band in 2010. Ramirez rock, roots, dub, funk, influences wtih a passion for electro music is what got Genesis Ian's attention that transpired Toly to join the band. With a new album "Around The World" set to be release Dec 2010 on iTunes everything seems to be falling into it's place.
