Biography

The sophomore record is notoriously one of the toughest hurdles a young musician has to clear—you’ve got to strike the perfect balance between where you want to take your music and the identity you’ve established for your audience. Singer/songwriter Ian Walsh has pulled off the juggling act with flying colors in the form of Seeing Stars, set for release September 25 on Plus 5 Records.

It’s been just over a year since the New Englander’s moving, critically acclaimed debut, Please Remember. In the interim, Walsh has been touring relentlessly, forging an enduring connection with fans across the country. His commitment has brought change in bulk—relocating to Boston, taking a leave of absence from Berklee College of Music to focus solely on his career, and finding an incredible cast of bandmates. New recruits Wiley Esten (guitar), Jamie Orlando (keyboards) and Jesse Devine (bass) are the perfect complements to multi-instrumentalist Walsh and longtime drummer Cam Tyler.

As for Seeing Stars—recorded at Hammerhead Studios with producer Ritchie Rubini and Grammy-winning engineer Nick DiDia— it replicates Please Remember’s organic sensibility, but with a welcome infusion of energy. Walsh’s confessional narratives shine throughout, particularly on the yearning “Melissa” and “Casting Shadows.”
