LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Performing a song to music industry greats like Blake Shelton, John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Camila Cabello can be quite daunting for even the most seasoned singer. But 20-year-old Ian Harrison put his nerves to one side and put on a terrifying performance that had The Voice coaches bickering to get him on their team.

If you’re curious to learn more about Ian, then read on. In the meantime, catch up on Ian’s contenders on season 22 of The Voice – Morgan Myles, Omar Cardona and Tiana Goss.


Who is Ian Harrison?

Ian is a 20-year-old college student from Columbus, Ohio. Aside from going to school and working in a bar on the weekends, Ian makes a point of finding music somewhere in his life. He’s an alternative artist with an ear for all genres from pop to country.
In his introductory pack, Ian revealed how his father’s death has affected him. He explained that his father took his own life in 2011 when Ian was only nine years old. The young singer recalled that he was too young to understand what was going on with his father and to see some signs. A year after his father’s death, Ian’s adoptive father came into his life. The young singer praised his adoptive father as a very loving and encouraging person. Ian’s passion for music was ignited when he inherited his father’s guitar and found some sheet music in the case. He took it as a sign from his father to devote himself to music and began working towards it. Although he has never performed in front of a live audience, Ian decided to take a risk and auditioned for The Voice.

For his performance at the audition, Ian chose the song “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron. He explained how emotionally connected he was to the song as it reminded him of his father and hoped the judges would feel it. Luckily for Ian, Gwen, Blake and John noticed and turned their chairs around for him. Although Blake was the first coach to reach out for him, Ian decided to join Team Gwen after hearing her very persuasive argument about how she could relate to him and help him harness his talents.

We can’t wait to see Ian’s journey in The Voice.

Season 22 of The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8:7c on NBC and is available to stream on Peacock.
