Ian McNabb has been acclaimed as one of the finest singer-songwriters Britain has produced, emerging from the 1980’s Liverpool music scene as songwriter, lead singer and guitar player with The Icicle Works. Their initial run of hit singles (Love Is A Wonderful Colour, Birds Fly, When It All Comes Down, Evangeline, Understanding Jane, Little Girl Lost) has been followed by a distinguished 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’. You can find his discography at www.ianmcnabb.com and many, many videos on youtube. For those who like a lot of facts with their sounds there are plenty on his wikipedia page too.
