Ian Abel, the band’s charismatic leader, drew inspiration from his own memorable experiences in California to create this compelling track. “I wrote ‘California Nights’ inspired by my experiences in California—from headlining a night at the Troubadour to group adventures in Joshua Tree, and recording sessions at the iconic United Recording studio,” Abel shares.

The song embodies the carefree spirit of the West Coast, making it the perfect companion for a drive down Sunset Boulevard or a day at Venice Beach. The collaborative effort behind the track is equally impressive, with contributions from Kenny Schwartz of Los Stellarians, engineering and mixing by Jon Graber (NOFX, All American Rejects), assistance from Reade Wolcott, mastering by multi-Grammy Award-winning engineer Alan Douches from West West Side Music (Sufjan Stevens, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac), and backing vocals from Jackie Miclau of Mt. Joy.

The Ian Abel Band, renowned for their expansive, stadium-ready rock sound, is no stranger to acclaim. Their track “Shoes” gained international recognition when featured in a promotional video for All Elite Wrestling’s landmark Cody & Dustin Rhodes match, leading to a nomination for Best Song/Score in a Trailer at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards. Beyond his work with his own band, Ian Abel has showcased his lead guitar prowess with Grand Ole Opry star T. Graham Brown and headlined iconic Los Angeles venues such as Whisky A Go Go and The Viper Room. As they continue to make significant strides in the music industry, the Ian Abel Band invites listeners to join them on a sonic journey through the heart of California with “California Nights.” For those ready to infuse their summer playlist with the essence of the Golden State, this track is a must-listen. Stream “California Nights” on all digital platforms, and stay connected with the band via Instagram @ianabelband and their official website at ianabel.band.
