IAN JAMES BASS GUITAR/VOCALS
Ian is obviously the second youngest member of the band and also has a wicked sense of humour. He started to play acoustic guitar as a young teenager (and has still got the guitar!) and started to play bass as soon as he heard the music of Free, Deep Purple and many Soul bands who still remain strong influences. Other early influences included Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Santana, Chic, The Eagles, Thin Lizzy and Supertramp to name but a few. Early bands were formed, disbanded and reformed on a regular basis until a busy working and family life began to take away the time needed to fully commit to any of them. Live playing was a thing of the past but remained in the blood until it resurfaced leading to him playing in several bands ranging from rock, soul to pop. A lover of all types of music, Ian will play any good tune and particularly enjoys vocal harmonies, which is what initially attracted him to Morning Town, who do them so well!
