Ian Peres is an Australian rock musician. He is the bassist and keyboardist of the hard rock band Wolfmother. Peres joined the band in January 2009 as Andrew Stockdale found new members after Chris Ross and Myles Heskett quit in 2008. The same year that Peres joined Wolfmother, the band released their second studio album Cosmic Egg.[1]


In an interview with Toazted in 2011, Stockdale revealed that former drummer Dave Atkins had suggested Ian Peres when the band were looking for a bassist. Peres responded by saying that he was "very excited by the prospect of playing with a band that he had always admired in the past."[2] Peres has played bass and keyboards in both Cosmic Egg and New Crown; the band's second and third albums respectively. Peres contributed towards the engineering, editing and audio mixing in New Crown along with Kevin Garcia Fernandez.


Peres plays Korg keyboards, primarily a Korg CX-3.[3] He has also been seen playing Mosrite and Fender bass guitars. He mostly plays the Fender Precision Bass.[4]
