Ian first hit
internationally in 1973 with "Painted Ladies". With a Juno award,
four SOCAN classic awards for Painted Ladies, Right Before Your Eyes, Hold On
and Pilot, a UNICEF Danny Kaye Humanitarian award, Juno and Gemini
nominations,15 albums and nearly as many top twenty records later, Ian has now
added author to the mix with two novels, Bequest (Manor House 2006) and his
latest The Lost Chord (Manor House 2008).
Ian’s lyrics have
been utilized in English textbooks while his songs have found international
success with many artists such as Santana, America, Manfred Man, Chicago, Bette
Midler and Ann Murray. He also records and tours the country regularly
with good friends Murray McLauchlan, Marc Jordan, and Cindy Church in a band
called Lunch At Allen’s. From 1990 to 2000, Ian wrote &recorded four albums
and toured with his band “The Boomers” who were comprised of some of the
Canada’s finest musicians - Peter Cardinali, Rick Gratton and Bill Dylan. When
you add twenty movies as a film composer, six seasons on the Red Green Show as
character Dougie Franklin and over a thousand commercials voicing characters
from Clive Firkin of Firkin Pubs to Snap the Rice Crispie, the credit list
starts getting ridiculous.
2009 saw Ian
touring both as a solo artist and with Lunch At Allen’s, while completing the
music for the animated series The Adventures Of Bob and Doug McKenzie and
scoring two Hallmark Movies, The National Tree and Fairfield Road. With the new
Lunch At Allen’s CD completed and 2010 underway Ian is currently writing and
recording a long awaited new solo album. To hear him live is to spend time with
a master songsmith and humorist. Ian lives with his wife of nearly 40 years in
the Niagara wine region of Ontario because he likes both wine and his wife.
