Spencer Love Interviews: Ian Abel of the Ian Abel Band

by Spencer Love

Musician Ian Abel of the Ian Abel Band joins me to discuss his work with All Elite Wrestling, creating music for Cody vs Dustin, what makes this lineup of the Ian Abel Band unique, the process of moving the band to Nashville mid-pandemic, and more!


A background on the band:

“What are we? A band of misfits, really! Who are we? We’re still trying to figure that out. No – so, currently moving to Nashville, because of everything is going on. The band’s kind of spread out right now. But we’ll be based out of Nashville starting out. And it kind of makes sense. I mean, we’re more of that, like, I call it modern-day outlaw country, which outlaw country think like Waylon [Jennings] and people. If someone hears us, they’ll be like, ‘I don’t know about that,’ but we’re just a bunch of musicians just trying to write about what I guess we go through.”

“I try to keep it all pretty personal. I never sit down and think ‘this is exactly how things are going to be.’ You know, I would have never imagined that I would have a song used in such an awesome way. Two songs used, but especially with ‘Shoes’ for the brother-versus-brother match. I don’t know if that answered your question, but as far as who we are, I’m still trying to figure that out, I think.”

Who he would like to write entrance music for:

“Three. Okay. Anna Jay because she’s awesome! Yeah, different. Anna Jay. I think she’s incredible. She’s also super gorgeous, and she’s – I follow her on Twitter, she seems awesome, and I think she’s going to be huge. I think she’s gonna be a household name sooner than later. Also, let’s see Orange Cassidy. I’m a huge Cassidy guy. Big time Orange Cassidy fan. I think I could write a sick one for him. And another one. Let’s go – screw it! Let’s go MJF! I can write some real real obnoxious I think.”

SL: “I was gonna say, you know, to go back to that outlaw comparison. He’s an outlaw in a very interesting way I suppose in a lot of ways, right?”

IA: “I guess Hangman would be the smartest one. Besides Anna Jay, Hangman, probably the smartest as far as music that we write. Hangman for sure.”
