Bio

Hailing from Petaluma, CA Ian Lubar first picked up the guitar at age thirteen and was playing around Sonoma County by fifteen. He lead two popular Sonoma county high school rock bands but eventually transitioned his musical vision into a solo acoustic career. Ian brings a mix of strong vocals, passionate guitar playing, and intense rhythms to create a musical force that demands your attention.

Now twenty years old Ian is a jazz guitar performance major and is constantly reaching out and incorporating more sophisticated musical expressions into his music. Anything but dull, Ian quickly grabs the attention of even the toughest bar crowd. His lyrics display sensitivity and questioning of the human condition far beyond his young age. When combined with his overpowering guitar playing his message is reinforced leaving the crowd calling for more.
Ian’s first EP “The Stairwell Sessions” (released March 2010) was recorded and mastered in only twelve hours. The planning for the EP took weeks. Ian, along with the engineer, searched for a location that had the acoustics he so desperately wanted. From the get go, he sought to create an EP that would sound as though he was playing a private concert in your living room. To meet this goal they decided not to use overdubbing and only minimal effects. Recorded in the stairwell of a five story building, they created a unique acoustic environment; one never envisioned by the buildings architect. All six songs are original compositions that were also arranged by Ian.
