BandAlternativeEDM

Ian Munn Solo Artist mixes the appeal of electronic music with guitar driven pop rock. The songs have a distinctively original style and are hooky with clever riffs and melodic vocals. There is absolutely no music quite like Ian's tunes and they would be quite at home on a movie soundtrack or radio.

Biography

IAN MUNN SOLO ARTIST IS RECORDING "LATE NIGHT SESSIONS" IN 2009. WITH A STYLE THAT IS A MIXTURE OF ALTERNATIVE, POP, ELECTRONICA AND INDUSTRIAL, HIS BLEND OF CATCHY HOOKS AND GUITAR RIFFING HAS EARNED HIM A SMALL AND LOYAL FOLLOWING WHICH IS SURE TO EXPAND AS THE NEW SONGS FIND THEIR WAY TO PLAYLISTS AND RADIO. ALL IAN'S LATEST SONGS ARE AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD BEFORE BEING PROFESSIONALLY REMASTERED AND COMMERCIALLY RELEASED IN DECEMBER 2009.
"I used to love the Sydney scene, but part of me felt a bit alienated by it" he stated when asked about his past musical endeavours. "I got stuck playing in bands that didn't reflect where I was musically. I was always playing in one particular style at home and another at gigs and in the studios. I guess now the music I am creating is a culmination of all those times I played to people in lounge rooms, at BBQ's, after nights out, alone at home. They would often tell me to go out on my own, and that my voice was more suited to the mellow stuff."
It is true that Ian Munn has a lot of musical credentials. A regular on the Sydney music scene for many years, Ian's best known as the original guitarist in Beware of the Dog- a band that still has a strong underground following. "I loved those times and I really miss them," he insists."But now I have moved on to bigger and better things for me personally. Now I have complete musical freedom and can play the music I always wanted to."
So what should you expect from this musician given his penchant for guitar riffs and his past band excursions?
"I prefer The Black Eyed Peas to Pantera ," he laughs quite amused. "However I am feeling like I did when I watched all those bands years ago. The difference is I have grown up a lot. I have the opportunity with my home studio to play when I please and in whatever style I please. I don't have to deal with anything that takes the joy out of music, and making music for me."
"I have learned with my current recording that i can't write to a formula. I am still learning as an engineer and the true music within is back. There is a style and a sound that every individual has, and mine hopefully will finally be realised in these new songs. I feel I have a point to prove and some unfinished business. Music for me is not about anything but emotion and expression. Whatever happens, I just want people to enjoy what I am doing, and appreciate the time i am spending making quality music," he ponders with an enthusiastic tone.
Ian Munn Solo Artist is not playing any live shows but has a film clip and series of podcasts planned for upcoming months. His latest song "Newspaper" has just been released and is available on his official site at www.ianmunnsoloartist.com

Lyrics

Strangers

Written By: IanMunn

Can't explain this feeling
I feel like this
Never mind the side effects
Take me to another place
Where the pain will go away
Lets go lets go talk to strangers
I just don't care anymore
Don't tell me don't tell me what to do
I've become what I used to hate
Can't escape what you can't explain
Some things will never be the same
Love life
Play your part
I'll do it again always
I just don't know
Why you make me feel this way
I just wanna know How you make me feel this way.

Lullaby

Written By: Ian Munn

Everyday a reason to live
She likes the colour blue I don't know why
So many times made me think of you
There's a reason why I can't sleep at night
My heart is feeling nothing like I felt before
Lullaby-never gonna change
Lullaby-time to rearrange
Responsibility-make the same mistakes
Nothing comes for free
Let your body ache
I'm never gonna change
When are you gonna stay the same?
Wasting all away
Everybody's talking 'bout the time that we spent together
Living for today time to have my say
It's not gonna be forever
Not all about the play
Money is all you have it doesn't sustain me
Embrace the child within cause some things have to be
No future and no past I can't sleep at night
My heart is feeling nothing like I felt before.
