One Day I

by Ian Britt

Sheffield-born, Manchester-raised Ian Britt’s voice is straight out of the classic rock singer school - bluesy, yet melodic and in places reminiscent of Paul Rodgers. Indeed, Britt acknowledges his debt to sixties power trios and to his drummer dad’s vast

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

His debut 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 “Ian is most definitely one to catch this year” 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 “Big Light” 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 2008… after that… 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 “Dirty Girl” has already appeared in Pete Tong’s eclectic mix (BBC Radio One, UK) He is currently looking for other projects for collaborations, guest musicianship and writing opportunities

“We still haven’t managed to categorise Ian Britt. And we’re not even going to try. His album doesn’t sound like a dance record. Despite hero worshipping Hendrix and Cream, you won’t really find any electric guitar pyrotechnics. And yet it doesn’t really fit into the singer-songwriter box either… And therein lays its delight. You’re thrown back to Duke Ellington’s old prescription that there are only two kinds of music – the good and the bad.” Nigel Williamson. Uncut and The Guardian.

“A stunningly accomplished debut album steeped in the quality end of roots American singer-song writing... There’s some exceptionally tasteful guitar playing throughout the album. It’s the kind of artful yet unpretentious material…to find an audience in the U.S…” Paul Taylor, Manchester Evening news.

Ian Britt’s style is the perfect antidote to the likes of James Blunt, who’s… plugging his painful MFI School of song writing…. Ian Britt’s album is the result of two years touring and a lifetimes observations.” David Dunn. Sheffield Star.

“Ian Britt's brilliant debut album "One Day I......." was deservedly our Featured Album of the month earlier this year, and this highly talented singer songwriter certainly deserves to be heard. His intelligent, quirky lyrics and beautiful melodies are minute observations on love and life, which we can all relate to in someway or another. We interviewed Ian and asked him about the album, his musical influences, and a lot more, before filming two stunning acoustic songs, in the intimate setting of Monkey Chews music venue in Chalk Farm, London.” – The Alternative Artist Network

“From the start it is clear that Britt has something quite special; listen to his song "Overtones" which he brings to a rock steady and nifty climax. After the impressively powerful rock song: With "I wash my Hands" he peaks again and with the superb "Fallen Angel." It’s very challenging to categorize this young man, Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty) or Shawn Mullins perhaps? One thing is for certain, we will be hearing a whole lot more form this exciting musical troubadour. Ian Britt is currently working on a new album, we will be keeping a close eye on him from now on.- Jan Janssen, 3voor12FM radio Rootscafe, The Netherlands


“Definitely one to watch out for in 2008…” - BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe

“Britt deals in cracked emotion and aching vocals delivered with a strand of deserved confidence. Sharply tailored in white shirt and white tie, his tender rolling tunes nodded to America but stayed firmly grounded in the north of England” – Chris Long, BBC Manchester

Wow
I first got to hear Ian Britt in a small pub in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The man blew me away. After his majestic performance I got hold of his latest EP "Big Light" and it blew me away. I can't really add anything that hasn't already been said about "One Day I", except was has been said is nothing but the truth. This one's worth every penny.
