Ian Earley on SoundBetter

I am Professional, Friendly, and Funny. This applies to both my personality, and my music! I can help bring any music to life with my Bass or my Composing.

I am originally from the SF Bay Area, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music from Santa Clara University. I have been playing Bass professionally since 2011, and Composing/Arranging professionally since 2015. I have played in many Musical Theater Orchestras; this has made me an exceptional sight reader, and it has given me experience playing a broad range of musical styles. I have been a part of over 8 different recording projects; three as a high schooler, and five as a professional. I am very comfortable in the studio, and am very good at getting the desired sound/technique very quickly. I am very comfortable playing Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, and R&B; I can also play Bluegrass and Classical. My compositions and arrangements generally fall within the Pop/Jazz/Fusion genre; but I can also compose or arrange in the traditional genres as well. My musical style is a lot like my personality: Lively, Fun, and always seeking a Challenge.
