Paul Crane - Guitar
A dedicated student of the guitar for over 30 years, Paul's pyrotechnic style, guitar tone and long time friendship with Ian made him the natural choice as the second guitarist for Ian-K.

Over the years, Paul has played in numerous cover and tribute bands. Most recently he played in the Scorpions Tribute, BlackOut. Paul has also recorded and released his own independent, original full length CD.

Paul is also a business owner and a member of his local Chamber of Commerce, a motorcycle enthusiast, and a proud owner of two crazy German Shepherds.

Keith Riddolls - Drums
Keith has been drumming since the age of 12, educated from lessons and drum corps.

A seasoned musician playing over 2000 live performances over a 10 year span with recording and touring artists T.O. Joker under the recording label Magada international.

Keith has toured across Canada and down through the U.S.A. many times playing Night Clubs, Festivals and opening for other well known national acts such as April Wine, Blue Oyster Cult, Jeff Healey, and many more.

In 2015 he decided it was time to get back to having some different fun by pursuing his original passion for music with long-time friend and talented musician Ian K.

Adam Sweeney - Bass

Adam Sweeney holds down the bottom end of the Ian K sound, and helps to round things out with his impressive backing vocals as well.

A very capable player, Adam’s crisp, clean, and well written bass tones are mistakably that of Adam Sweeney. He is a high energy player, evidenced at every single live performance, and with such a long history of playing in cover tribute bands with Ian over the years, the choice was obvious that Adam would fulfill the bass guitar duties in Ian K, since the chemistry for this band is so obvious.
