There is a famous quote, “With great power comes great responsibility!” Ian Von has taken ownership of these words and has definitively stewarded the great gift of music with great attention and care. Raised and reared in a generationally gifted music culture, he is forging his way as a critically acclaimed solo artist, songwriter and musician.
Insightful and intuitive, Ian has a noteworthy purpose. As he says, “I am at my core, an R&B artist, here to impact my culture by touching the hearts of people through my music.” Born in Baton Rouge, La., Ian grew up with deep roots firmly planted in the church, where he honed his skills as a musician and singer. As part of a generously gifted music family, music is his birthright.
While in high school, Ian joined an R&B boy group that eventually afforded him the opportunities to perform on tour with New Edition, Joe, Montel Jordan and Destiny’s Child. They spent several years cultivating their artistry in the underground circuit of Louisiana and became regional indie phenom’s. During this time they sold over 12,000 albums independently and were featured on television platforms, VH1 and MTV.
