My name is Ian. I live by the sea and make music.

My solo and collaborative work has appeared on labels such as Morr Music, 12k, Dauw, Infraction, Archives, Slowcraft, IIKKI, Dragon's Eye, Hibernate, Slaapwel, Pyramid Blood, and loads more amazing places which I am so thankful for working with. I also run the Home Normal label, and have lived in Italy, Japan, Poland, and now back in the UK since 2019 after 15 years away.

Beyond my day to day work of mastering and sound engineering, I also love to record noisy tape loops sourced from various instruments, and play late into the night most days to relax. My aim of setting up the Folk Reels subscription was to release my music alongside these random sketches here and there.

You can subscribe to my work for just £5 per year. For this you get to download and stream all of my releases and pretty much everything I have made and will make during the duration of your subscription for that. You also get 25% off any physical releases I randomly put up.

Any funds here go towards some nice tea to help me make music in the middle of the night when everyone else is asleep and tapes when the ones I've used are just too worn to record on again. :)

Thank you x Ian (Folk Reels)
