FOLK: Folk Pop, BLUES: Acoustic Blues
Born in Sheffield, England and moving on after a colourful youth & adolescence, Ian fled his roots to study music in the notoriously musical city of Manchester. He remained here for seven years, achieving a 1st degree honours in Popular Music and Sound Recording, then signing to the independent label Jalapeno Records in London whilst making himself a name locally as an acoustic singer-songwriter.
An album was recorded in 2005 with a duo of dance/breaks producers and on release was met with a positive and encouraging reaction from national/regional press/radio. The album One Day I culminated in a grand and commandingly produced soulful, Trans-Atlantic sound with mature, honest, sometimes humorous lyrical writing, assured technical ability and a keen melodic pop-rock-radio sensibility.
Ian Britt performs constantly in the U.K and more recently in Europe. Over the years he has honed his acoustic shows into authoritative and arresting performances âIan is most definitely one to catch this yearâ Ali B-capitol FM.
Ian split from his management and label in early 2006 to separate himself from the vision and direction of those people around him, moved back to his hometown of Sheffield and has spent the last year exploring, touring, writing and self recording.
A new album was released independently in 2007, entitled âBig Lightâ and Ian is currently looking for label support, press reaction and radio contact to help promote the work.
Ian is about to begin recording his third album independently with a view to releasing in the winterâ¦ after thatâ¦ who knows?
Ian is also part of a side project called IKON, a collective of artists who collaborate on lounge, breaks and beats. An Ian wrote two tracks appearing on the next IKON album, one of which âDirty Girlâ has already appeared in Pete Tongâs eclectic mix (BBC Radio One, UK) He is currently looking for other projects for collaborations, guest musicianship and writing opportunities
Talking Heads, Randy Newman, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, Counting Crows, alt acoustic rock pop.
âWe still havenât managed to categorise Ian Britt. And weâre not even going to try. His album doesnât sound like a dance record. Despite hero worshipping Hendrix and Cream, you wonât really find any electric guitar pyrotechnics. And yet it doesnât really fit into the singer-songwriter box eitherâ¦ And therein lays its delight. Youâre thrown back to Duke Ellingtonâs old prescription that there are only two kinds of music â the good and the bad.â Nigel Williamson. Uncut and The Guardian.
âA stunningly accomplished album. Steeped in the quality end of roots American singer-song writing... Thereâs some exceptionally tasteful guitar playing throughout the album. Itâs the kind of artful yet unpretentious materialâ¦to find an audience in the U.Sâ¦â Paul Taylor. Manchester Evening news.
Ian Brittâs style is the perfect antidote to the likes of James Blunt, whoâsâ¦ plugging his painful MFI School of song writingâ¦. Ian Brittâs album is the result of two years touring and a lifetimes observations.â David Dunn. Sheffield Star.
âFrom the start it is clear that Britt has something quite special. One thing is for certain, we will be hearing a whole lot more form this exciting musical troubadour. Jan Janssen, 3voor12FM radio Rootscafe, The Netherlands
âDefinitely one to watch out for in 2008â¦â BBC Radio 1âs Zane Lowe
