Iain began his tertiary education at N.I.D.A. Fully aware of the honor of gaining a place, Iain gave his full attention. Well, perhaps not quite his full attention. By the end of the first year he was working as a professional musician in the highly respected 'SUN'. (Renee Geyer)
Music was meant to be; from then on Iain worked with many very successful Australian bands. His talents as a drummer and composer were recognized and prized.

IAIN McLENNAN'S LATEST ALBUM "FAITH" Review :-Been a while since his last highly acclaimed Mauve album in 1991, but Iain McLennan the well traveled singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer who has performed with Ariel, Richard Clapton Band, Sports, Mondo Rock, Russell Morris Band has lost none of his skill for crafting heartfelt and thought provoking songs. From the hauntingly real Faith with it's atmospheric flugel horn courtesy of Nigel Harris and honest lyrics as with If You Walk Away, you really feel the experience and emotion in the lyrics. Love Can Set Us Free is an optimistic reggae vibe. Tumbling Down is characteristic Iain and One Step Closer includes fellow ex Mondo rock & Ariel keyboard man Tony Slavich. You can tell that lyrics come from real life experience where the words are not wasted or contrived. This is honest stuff and hopefully Iain will get it out and about live soon. In the meantime check out Faith. Available through https://www.tradebit.com
MORE REVIEWS & INFO on the way CD Baby have a large backlog to get through. So please be patient. Airplay is picking up down under and reviews are strong.
Review of Iain McLennan's Faith Album
Recorded at Oinkmuse Studios Mosman 2003
Faith displays an unpretentious, but insightful production that is rarely heard these days. The album is open and honest with strong songs and heart felt vocals telling stories about real-life experiences. Not only are the melodies and vocals a feature but the grooves sit well, particularly in the sense of the whole album balance.
Iain sings about grief, and he sings about love and loneliness and the other stuff you've heard a thousand times, but somehow while he's doing the singing, you're feeling every bit of it. The songs, well, they're some of the most beautifully haunting melodies you'll ever want to hear. The lyrics are emotional ... Iain digs deep and holds nothing back.
Being involved in assisting Iain with some of the studio set-up, guitars and mixing was a fabulous experience. Some times we would just be sitting around chatting and listening when spontaneous moments would happen. On one occasion I remember we set up a guitar and ad-libbed over the chorus of 'If You Walk Away' ... a couple of takes later that was it. Not a planned session or anything, just a creative moment.
An amazing aspect of Iain's album is that he built his studio "Oinkmuse" as he wrote and recorded the album. Although I helped with technical matters like Pro Tools operation and mic preamps he essentially handled the whole thing, including building the drum enclosure and recording/playing the live drums without an engineer ... that big beat, awesome. And you can actually hear the high hats, which really is a dying art form these days.
This project epitomises album production on a low budget. Iain used a small Pro Tools (LE) recorder, mid-range microphones and basic pre amps in a home environment, but the end result sounds fabulous.

It proves with good songs and experience you can compete against the major budget releases. In fact I challenge any producer, under a blind test, to guess how and where this album was recorded.

Regarding "OINKMUSE" the studio sounds great and I am well into new album. For those of you who have visited this site, thank you and don,t forget if you would like any more info I am only an email away. Photos, all sorts of stuff. As soon as I am able my website will be up and linked directly to CD BABY.
More https://www.tradebit.com looks like Radio Poland have picked up the CD.... more news on it's way. Australian airplay is starting to move as well, so overall I cannot complain. Cheers to all.......Iain
For all who have checked in I wish you a safe and happy Xmas.
I feel a sense of change is upon us all at present. I started to feel this strongly around 8 months ago. I was wary. Now I realise the change is positive as a time for completing unfinished challenges or works. To move on to the new.
In saying this I am reflecting the changes in my own life. A strong ending to a tricky year. Cheers to all Iain
"Faith" is gathering pace and moving in and around Europe. Also moving up the Australian East coast. June sees me in Paris for a week. Then it's Italy, Greece and finally THE BIG APPLE. If you see me, say hello, especially if your local. Tell me what's happening and what's not. I have never been to New York. This will be amazing! Yep, I'm excited. So grab me and tell me all about it. Cheers Iain
