Ian Janco was raised on an isolated ranch in the mountains of Idaho.
He later moved to Santa Cruz, California and played in lots of loud rock bands while writing and performing his first songs as a solo artist.
A five month busking and sightseeing tour of Europe in 2013 yielded Janco's new album, STRONGHOLD, which is now available on iTunes.
He now studies music at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where he is working on material for his next album.
Janco currently lives in Liverpool, England, where he is studying at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
Since moving to Liverpool, Janco has played countless gigs and opened up for national touring artists like Ward Thomas and John Joseph Brill. The entirety of his album was featured on an hour long radio special for BBC Merseyside, and his music has received glowing reviews from the city’s top bloggers.
With songs reminiscent of late 60’s troubadours such as Bob Dylan and Neil Young, and a voice similar to Ben Howard and Ray Lamontagne, Janco is a rising talent who isn’t afraid to cross genres and bend the rules of pop songwriting to fit with his laid-back musical sensibilities and positive, relatable lyrics.
