Soul Artist James Ian is an R&B singer, songwriter, composer whose music melts his listeners with the quiet intensity of his voice and lyrics. Never loud, never vulgar, the power in his music comes from the sheer depths of his emotion, brought forth with penetrating poignant lyrics and a voice of honesty and unabashed sincerity.

Nonetheless, he is indeed a heavy lifter, a true superman, when it comes to lifting people's spirits! Listening to his music, people's spirits soar as high as a mountain. For his Muscle is in the Music, and all his labor goes into it. It is a Labor of Love, the title of his latest EP.
Inspired by the R&B hit makers like James Brown, Al Green, Lenny Kravitz, Maxwell, John Legend, and John Mayer, James has created a style of music that mesmerizes audiences. A fan favorite at music festivals and local bars along the west coast as he performs back and forth between San Diego and Los Angeles, James is establishing himself as the future of his genre.
