The Brewhouse Sessions: Ian Mahan

  • Black Shirt Brewing Co 3719 Walnut Street Denver, CO USA (map)

While the weather is still too cold for events in our beer garden, we're kicking off a series of free, intimate shows in our brewhouse, aka The Brewhouse Sessions, beginning with singer/songwriter Ian Mahan.

A Colorado transplant from small-town Illinois, singer-songwriter Ian Mahan has spent the last decade writing and performing music for the sole purpose of connecting to his audience. His acoustic-style songs, with melodies ranging from mellow to upbeat, are marked by characteristic lyrical vulnerability. Though he attended piano lessons from a young age, Mahan did not find his true instrumental passion until his 18-year-old self picked up a guitar. His high school and college years were spent exploring music in the form of countless different bands, ultimately, establishing himself
as a solo artist in 2008.

In 2011, Mahan produced his first, self-titled EP with his drummer, band director and long-time friend, JD Raab. Four years later, Ian released "Tiger Lily,” his sophomore album which marries the singer-songwriter genre with pop-style, electronic elements.

Released earlier this year, Ian’s six-song EP, “Rockford,” showcases his evolving musical style grounded in emotional transparency and whispery acoustics. The album is a collection of curated songs that highlight life’s joys and miseries – inspired by breakups, Rocky Balboa and everything in between.
Ian has performed with notable artists such as Ryan Adams, Leon Bridges, Vanessa Carlton, Howie Day, Nina Storey, The Rocket Summer, Parachute, Stu Larsen, Tyler Hilton, Christina Perri and Joe Brooks.

Remember: This event is free, and it will be held indoors (Black Shirt's brewhouse). Seating is limited, so consider arriving on the earlier side.
