With his father being Argentinan and mother Vietnamese, Ian Razave was exposed to a variety of music at a very young age. Though Ian was born in Vietnam and spent part of his childhood there, he recalls his mother often shared with him some of the well known artists around the world such as Abba, The Police, Lionel Richie, BoneyM, Modern Talking, and many more. When asked about his passion for music, he laughed and shared “ever since I was a little boy, around 5 or 6 years old, my mother usually secured me in the baby seat and carried me through town on her bicycle. I always busted out all the famous tunes I learned from listening to her music very loud and proudly on the streets of Vietnam, and everyone around me noticed and was entertained”.... “I even performed in front of merchants at the street markets so that I’d get my favorite deserts for free”.
Despite the fact that growing up was not easy for Ian, his passion for music would only grow stronger everyday. At his later stage in life, Ian had an opportunity to get in touch with his other half as well as his passion for Latin music. Some of his desired Latin artists include the Mana, Alejandro Sanz and Laura Pausini.
Having obtained his degree in engineering from USC, Ian Razave has always continued to develop his music while working as a systems engineer. He has written many poems and later composed them into songs. Ian has taught himself on how to set up his own studio inside his bedroom as well as playing and recording all the tracks on his songs. When approached with a question of what he’s planning to do when his music career takes off…he humbly replied “I want to share my emotions and feelings to the listeners. I want to be able to talk to them and be there with them whenever they’re going through the same life experiences as I’ve gone through in my songs. More importantly, because I’ve experienced many challenging situations in life, I want to be able to use my talent to help those who are currently facing life in a disappointing way, because in my opinion, having a talent without a desire to do good in the world is never enough.”
