Nashville Artist Ian McConnell – We love Music, you know it. 

Proud to announce Nashville Artist Ian McConnell will perform a track from his newest album as the Live Music Opener

13th Annual New Media Film Festival® Thursday June 2 in L.A.

Ian is a writer, singer, performer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist in Nashville, TN. He began writing songs at age 12 in his hometown of Reston, VA.  Ian has been releasing one song per month since May 2019 and has since racked up more than 12.5 million streams. Each monthly release is written (or co-written), produced, mixed, and mastered by Ian in his Nashville residence. Several of these tracks have gone viral on TikTok and have been featured on several major Spotify editorial playlists, including New Music Friday, New Punk Tracks, PopCo and more. Influenced by 2000’s pop rock, hip-hop, and modern country, Ian’s music seeks to blur the lines between genres to create a sonically unique and lyrically evocative experience.

Ian’s performance benefits our We Give Back program. 

Thanks Ian!
