Following the release of You Won't Even Know I'm Gone and his well-received collaboration with Smith&Weeden, Ian decided to form his first band.  Known as Something Else, the band includes Seamus Weeden (also of Smith&Weeden) and MorganEve Swain and James Maple (both also of The Huntress & Holder of Hands). Ian first worked with MorganEve in 2008, when she played fiddle and sang on his record Empty Like The Lion Den. All three band members contributed to You Won't Even Know I'm Gone: Seamus played guitar and sang; MorganEve played viola; and James played percussion and engineered the record. Together, they are reinterpreting songs of Ian's both new and old, with many being performed by a band for the very first time.
