Ian Crawford (born September 29, 1988) is an American musician who is currently the lead guitarist of Never Shout Never. Previously, he was the lead guitarist of The Cab from 2007 until his departure in 2009, and the touring guitarist for Panic! at the Disco from 2009 to 2012. On June 1, 2009 The Cab's lead singer Alexander DeLeon announced on his blog that guitarist Ian Crawford had decided to leave the band. Although DeLeon did say that Crawford had decided to leave due to creative differences, there seemed to be no animosity between him and the band. For their upcoming "What Happens in Vegas..." tour, The Cab announced that their friend Bryan Dawson would be replacing Crawford. In 2009 after the departure of Ryan Ross and Jon Walker, Crawford joined Panic! at the Disco as their touring guitarist. He left the band in 2012, citing his desire to make "real, genuine" music. On June 11, 2014, it was announced that Crawford would become the lead guitarist of Never Shout Never.
He graduated from Auburn Riverside High School in 2007.
