Since the release of his 4th solo album “Visions” back in 2006 touching on the issues of global pollution (in the
mainstream media today), Ian celebrates his career recording his 30th studio album “In Flagrante Delicto”
meaning (in the very act of committing a crime). In Ian’s humble opinion, “the crime being plastic waste, not forgetting a touch of fantasy. I just want to bring even more awareness via our music”. Produced by Ian& mixed by Swedish producer Martin Kronlund (Hammerfall/ Firewind/Rock Emporium ) “In Flagrante Delicto contains 10 hypnotic power rock synthesizer/guitar/vocal based tracks ranging from Yes type synthesizer tracks to Whitesnake/ Foreigner classic rock and a hint of Rammstein with heart felt Bad English/Genesis style songs. After spending more than a decade (co-) writing and compiling songs for “In Flagrante Delicto” Ian sings out a passionate message from the heart to illustrate the issue of the effects of plastic waste. The album still retains the creative edge for a little fantasy for his fans and features the talent and support of his family of incredible musicians; guitarists - Stephan Lill (also co-writer) & Patrick Rondat; drummers - Imre Daun, Casey Grillo & Andreas Lill; bass guitarists - Barend Courbois, Torsten Reichert& Keyboard player & Co-songwriter - Jeroen van der Wiel & Joshua Dutrieux, performing 10 masterful tracks.
Now Ian teams up with an equally imprEssive collaboration of world class musicians in a melodic raw power rock formation performing the best tracks from his new solo album and a powerful cocktail of songs in a “Blast from the Past” live show with a few surprises for the fans.
