Bio

Ian Maxion simply put is blessed with a desire to entertain, and with the ability to entertain all comers successfully. Since he was a young child, Ian Maxion has had the true passion within him to become a professional recording artist. Ian would walk into room, and his presence would automatically attract the spotlight. From his honorary performance at his high school graduation to his numerous shows, choirs and plays, Ian Maxion continued on his quest to grow as an individual within the music world.

Although he began to gain some notoriety in Northern California, while booking numerous local concerts for Bay Area acts, it wasn’t until the Summer of 2003 that Ian’s career really took a turn for the better. Tempting fate with an audition for the hit show “American Idol”, Ian drove over eight hours to Pasadena, for the opportunity to gain entry to the status of mega-stardom. There was not much luck to be had for him at the audition, with the judges that is. However, fortunately for Ian Maxion, he caught the eye of a producer from a LA based production company named ERA Productions. Eddie Galan, the producer and President of the company, believed Ian had the drive, personality, and talent to make it. Eddie Galan gave Ian the chance of a lifetime by paving the way of his career, signing Ian Maxion to management and production deals!

Since joining ERA, Ian has since accomplished a plethora of things on his quest to stardom. Touring with such major label acts as Nina Sky, Jesse McCartney, DREAM, Trevor of O-Town, RJ Helton, and Myra has been only the beginning for Ian. He has also gone on to receive such awards and accolades as the “2004 New Artist of the Year” at the San Francisco Music Awards, “2004 Most Promising Male Singer of the Year” at the “Bay Area Celebrity Star Award Night Gala” and “The Outstanding Teen Singer of 2003” award from the Reno Gazette. Currently, Ian Maxion is growing quickly in the hearts of others in countries such as Indonesia, The Philippines, and Japan, where his tracks have already begun airplay and request have begun for an Ian Maxion international tour.

With so much enthusiasm and heart, his dreams have yet to be fulfilled. This rising star has dealt with losing loved ones, broken hearts, cynical critics and cruel peers who never fail to try and break him down with their words. Ian uses all of this and the rest of his life’s experiences to his advantage, while in the studio writing his newest songs. His drive will not allow anything to get in the way of his dreams coming true. Do not underestimate Ian’s drive, passion, and love for music, just expect to be hit with it soon!
