Jilian Medford began her musical career as IAN—a nickname her skater friends gave her in high school. Soon after releasing an EP, she added drummer Tim Cheney and bassist Damien Scalise to become IAN SWEET. The trio released a self-titled EP in 2014 and, as of two months ago, now find themselves signed to Hardly Art. Last month they hit the shores of Brooklyn with labelmates Chastity Belt and Colleen Green for a show at Market Hotel, but before they played, IAN SWEET hung out in the neighborhood with photographer Ester Segretto for a day of pounding the pavement in the name of journalism. This is a gallery of IAN SWEET’s pre-show hanging in Brooklyn.
