Ian Galipeau is a folk-rock songwriter for hopeful cynics. He writes happy-sad music about the grey areas... the sadness in love, the hope in catastrophe, the optimism of surrender. He is not an artist who can just write a simple love song, or a breakup song. He's compelled (for better or worse) to use songs to explore something out-of-the-ordinary. Sometimes it's a meditation on writers block, or the nostalgia of parenthood, or the perspective of a Ray Bradbury character... but there's always some fragment of the unexpected. Musically, he leans toward indie-rock, but there are also strands of retro-pop and Americana that will keep you on your toes.


Ian is based in Keene, NH. Since starting to focus on his solo project in 2018, he's shared stages with regional acts including Arc Iris, Dietrich Strause, Belle-Skinner, and Ian Fitzgerald.

Ian has co-written a handful of songs with Katie Toupin (of Houndmouth fame). He released two sister-EPs, titled Raze/Raise, in March of 2018, a full-length album Like We Were Never Here At All  in September 2022, and a series of singles and an EP over the course of 2023 / 2024.

Ian is also involved in a number of other projects as a writer, bassist, and producer. If you are interested in a writing partner, arranger, producer, or just want to chat about music theory, get in touch.
