FORMER ICICLE WORKS FRONTMAN IAN MCNABB
Legendary Liverpool singer-songwriter Ian McNabb released his new album, titled ‘Little Episodes’, exclusively via www.ianmcnabb.com in February 2012.
The new album is a stunning collection of freshly minted tracks which confirm Ian’s status as one of the premier talents of his generation.
The songs on the album were written over a day and a half period in late November 2011, Ian comments “I don’t think I’ve written that many songs so quickly in one sitting ever before, and certainly not used them all on one album in virtually the same order as I wrote them. The muse was certainly with me. I went into the studio immediately after my two Christmas gigs in Liverpool and we recorded the whole thing over a ten day period – taking time off for minor inconveniences such as Christmas and New Year’s. My favourite records of mine are always recorded fast. Here’s another one of them. Hope you enjoy it."
“I can’t wait to play these new songs in front of an audience, I’m very proud of them and how they have turned out” – Ian McNabb.
Ian McNabb is one of the finest singer-songwriters Britain has produced. Emerging from the 1980’s Liverpool music scene, Ian started a musical journey as songwriter, lead singer and guitar player with The Icicle Works which has taken on many twists and turns. The initial run of hit singles with The Icicle Works (Love Is A Wonderful Colour, Birds Fly, When It All Comes Down, Evangeline, Understanding Jane, Little Girl Lost) has been followed by a distinguished and critically acclaimed solo career, including a Mercury Prize Nomination for the 1994 album ‘Head Like A Rock’ which was recorded with Neil Young’s band ‘Crazy Horse’.
Now in his third decade as a recording artist, Ian continues to write stunning songs with warmth, humour, cynicism and grandeur and continues to tour his unique electric–acoustic show to sold out audiences around the country.
