Ian Munsick’s musical capability and potential aren’t all that different from the ranch in Sheridan, WY where he grew up. As the youngest of three brothers in an exceptionally musical family, Ian’s upbringing was a mix of working cattle and working crowds with the family band, “The Munsick Boys.” Surrounded by music from his earliest days, at age 10 he joined the family band on stage for the first time as a vocalist and guitar player. Throughout his childhood, he kept adding more instruments to his repertoire. Ian’s first passageway into songwriting came in the form of hip hop verses and hooks he wrote as a newly transplanted high schooler in Colorado Springs, CO.
Listening to Ian’s music today, you’ll hear his appreciation for innovation and his insatiable passion to express himself as an artist. Ian’s not afraid to try out a new sound, idea (or outfit) and it’s made him stand out in the best way possible. If you find a lyric you can’t relate to, you’ll be able to picture the person that could. Take Ian’s first single “Horses Are Faster”... Pairing descriptive imagery with a dreamy chorus melody, all flared with a twang, the song embodies Ian’s artistic style. Ian keeps it creative, catchy and country enough for you to know he’s seen the sun set on an open pasture (and he liked it).
After moving to Nashville in 2013, Ian completed degrees in songwriting and music business and is making a name for himself as an instrumentalist and solo artist continuing to call Music City home today. Ian has recently released an acoustic EP, was the only artist to have two songs in the top finalist for the NSCI/CMT songwriting competition & has been playing in venues from Tennessee to Tongue River.
