For lovers of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac Ian Martyn’s expressive and greatly inspiring new single ‘I Can Feel Your Power’ epitomises the support and comfort that art can bring to people especially at their darkest times in life. In Ian’s case it’s living with the earth shattering experience of losing both his wife and mother in the space of just 5 months.
Although Ian doesn’t gig or tour he has some very notable people who have performed on his music. Richie Buckley (from Van Morrison) played the saxophone on the track ‘Déjà vu’ who Peter Eades (Clannad) also performed drums on. Larry Hogan, Ian’s co-producer, on ‘I Can Feel Your Power’ and ‘Déjà vu’ has worked with Clannad, Thin Lizzy, Bob Geldof, Ronan Keating, to name but a few.
His other co-producer Richard ‘Digby’ Smith for 6 of the other album tracks also played some bass and supporting keyboards on some tracks. ‘Digby’ has worked on such artists music as Bad Company’s Album, Led Zeppelin’s 3rd and 4th albums, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, Cat Stevens, John Martyn (many more of note) and humbly possesses 2 Gold Disc awards and has had 2 No.1’s simultaneously worldwide that he engineered.
