.Ian Santillano at Art Boutiki

At 23, indie R&B singer-songwriter Ian Santillano is shining with artistic potential. Santillano hails from Hayward but is quickly gaining traction within San Jose’s DIY music scene. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Santillano’s lush guitar harmonies and bouncy bass lines complement his understated vocals with a waviness reminiscent of contemporary R&B acts like Daniel Caesar and The Internet. Santillano’s debut EP, 1856, dropped last Friday and will be celebrated with a performance at the Art Boutiki featuring his band, the Housewarmers. Sharing the date are local surf rock band Swells and the Lünatics, and the Sacramento neo-soul group Basi Vibe.
