The first time you hear Ian Warner’s music, you’ll remember great rhythms, whether it’s a gritty rock anthem like New Direction or a strong ballad like Grace Prevails. The next thing you’ll remember are lyrics that remind you that nothing is too big for God to handle, and that He’s our hope in this crazy world.
Ian’s style is fundamentally contemporary Christian rock, but he likes to stretch the boundaries with visits to hard rock from time to time. Although his musical style is somewhat fluid, he doesn’t waver from solid Christian lyrics that reflect who God is, and that He wants a relationship with us. Fortunately, he’s married both into music that appeals to a wide audience.
Ian is one of those rare 1, 2 combinations; a gifted songwriter and a voice that breathes life to his songs. His debut album, “Hope for Today”, was strong enough to receive a 2011 nomination for Covenant Award Modern Rock Album of the Year by the Gospel Music Association. Andrew Horrocks, the 2011 Covenant Award-winning Producer of the Year, understood Ian’s vision for the album and helped him to realize his goal of helping people draw closer to God.
Ian has pulled together a great band who have played at his CD release concert, opened for Newworldson, and other local gigs. He’s also writing new songs for his next album, with King of my Life being the first in production.
