A Cup of Tea with… Inside Out’s Ian

Inside Out branch 2

In the exciting run up to their gig at Bush Hall on 25/01/18, we wanted to get to know the members of new Sounding Out band Inside Out a bit better, so we sat down with each of them for  a nice cup tea…

Ian plays guitar and occasionally sings in Inside Out. 

Inside Out_IanITT: Hi Ian! How did you first get involved? 

Ian: I first met the ITT team through the Music in Prisons programme. I enjoyed the songwriting aspect and organising and performing at the prison concert.

ITT: Who are your musical heroes? What about them inspires you? 

Ian: Dave Mustaine – technical ability and great composition. Paul Williams – beautiful melody and lyric writing.

ITT: How important is music in your life?

Ian: Vital. It’s all I’ve ever really been able to do.

ITT: What’s your favourite Inside Out song and why?

Ian: Life Story. It has great music that is enjoyable to play and great lyrics.

ITT: What are you looking forward to about the Bush Hall gig?

Ian: The chance to prove what we are capable of and to play in front of an audience.

ITT: What are your hopes for the future?

Ian: To continue to play music and to find permanent work.

ITT: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

It’s never too late to start again.

ITT: Any parting thoughts for the world?

Be good. Simple, I know, but it’s essential to achieve happiness.

Don’t miss Inside Out play at Bush Hall on 25/01/18! The evening will feature a special collaboration between the band and the Phaedra Ensemble, as well as support from the brilliant The Fish Police
