Ian Tattenham is a singer songwriter who performs original songs with his acoustic guitar and has developed a unique style of guitar playing and singing with songwriting that showcases his love for; the naturally beautiful sounds of his guitars, harmonics, complex rhythms, the incorporation of open strings, drone counterpoints to melodic chords, and dynamic songs that range from the energetic to laid-back. Ian's goal is for listeners to find themselves moving - rocking out, and dancing to acoustic guitar jams that find that special place between the campfire and rock stadium.
A Bay Area native, born in San Francisco and child of the East Bay, including Berkeley and Oakland, San Jose and beyond, Ian was influenced by the vibrant music scene of the East Bay during the late 80’s and early 90’s. Playing various styles of music ranging from blues, funk, rock, punk, grunge, ska, and jazz, Ian found that his true passion was in crafting original songs which he continues to write and develop today. With a growing list of 30+ original songs and some fun covers Ian has been playing venues in the Bay Area to rave reviews. Visit www.facebook.com/IanTattenhamBand for updates, songs, and videos.
