One of the great singer/songwriters to emerge from the 80s Liverpool music scene.
Founder/lead singer with the chart toppers The Icicle Works, famous for the UK and US Top 40 hits “Love Is A Wonderful Colour” and “Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly)”, Ian McNabb has gone on to enjoy a critically acclaimed solo career.
The Mercury Music Prize nominated artist continues to write stunning songs with warmth, humour, cynicism and grandeur.
So far this decade, Ian has released Little Episodes, Eclectic Warrior, and Kruggerands – harder rocking albums which both feature the band Cold Shoulder; Respectfully Yours (a long promised album of cover versions), Star, Smile, Strong, which features collaborations with Prof. Brian Cox, a co-write with Ralph Molina (from Crazy Horse), and the unexpected return of Icicle Works drummer Chris Sharrock (who had gone on to work with The La’s, World Party, Del Amitri, Dave Stewart, Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams, Oasis, and both Liam and Noel Gallagher in their solo endeavours), and most recently Our Future In Space, which once again features Cold Shoulder, and the song Aquamarine co-written with R.E.Ms Peter Buck.
