Singer, songwriter & musician Ian Alistair Gosbee may be an indie act, but he is proof in the pudding that formidable artistry doesn’t require major label backing to earn due notice. The title track from his third full-length collection “Life Gets In the Way” earned top 10 props on several Canadian charts, airplay on regional radio and amped up an already fervent North American and U.K. fan following. Ian was chosen to represent Mainstreet Nova Scotia in CBC Radio's Searchlight competition and was featured on the popular website ReverbNation.com.
In this age of digital downloads, today’s independent artists have to work harder then ever, continually reinventing themselves to stand out from the crowd. Ian Gosbee is an ever evolving musician. From his early training in classical violin, to playing packed clubs in cover, and well known tribute bands, Ian has not been one to shy away from any opportunity to do what he loves.
With his powerful, sincere vocals and uncanny ability to play almost any instrument, Ian is in a class all his own. In the summer of 2011, he released his first full length solo project, aptly named ‘Music’. Inspired by folk rock and country, this album is meaningful, memorable, and light hearted, everything music should be.
Gosbee’s second album entitled ‘Invisible’ (which was release just 5 months later), shows his true diversity as an artist. With influences ranging from indie rock, to reggae, ‘Invisible’ is a culmination of classic song writing, and modern sound engineering.
Back in the studio once again, Ian’s third installment called 'Life Gets In The Way', was released 12/12/12. Releasing 3 albums in the span of 1 year!
Ian will continue to expand his repertoire; entertaining, and amazing audiences for years to come.
