Ian has always had a love for music.
His singing career first started out on stage in 1989 at a karaoke. He enjoyed it so much that he decided to run his own karaoke and did so for approximately 13 years, where he honed his vocal gift.
During the karaoke times, people were continually asking him to sing while they sat and listened. Then one day in 2004, someone asked him to put a show together for a dinner party and there was no looking back.
Since then his performances have exploded with many requests that have taken him to various venues all over southern Ontario, including live productions. He is a former member of a barbershop choir as well as a gospel-style choir. He has sung with many local bands, and has also performed in Las Vegas.
He has performed with many award winning tribute entertainers, including Elvis, John Denver and Glen Campbell.
His incredible talent has won him multiple vocal awards at many talent shows.
He enjoys singing songs from artists of the 50’s and 60’s and with his unique multi-octave vocal range he performs Roy Orbison particularly well. He is so convincing in his songs that many have wondered if he is lip syncing. He cut his first CD in 2014 and has had airplay on Northumberland 89.7 Cobourg.
“Hits of The Legends of the 50s/60s” is a reflective set of songs from the artists of that era – Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson, just to name a few.
“In Dreams” is a set of Roy Orbison’s most popular songs, for example – Pretty Woman, Crying, Blue Angel.
