ARTIST'S BIO
The acoustic guitar is and always will be synonymous with Halifax's music scene. This is an old city comprised of a vibrant collage of old school sounds with new school flavors. Nothing vibes with city quite like six strings on wood and no one embodies that feeling quite like Ian Gosbee.

The multi talented singer/song writer has been grooming himself for a career in music since he was a five years old. Sneaking down to the basement to wail on his brother drum kit in secret. Since then it’s fortunate for the city that he's become far less bashful.

His soft melodic singing style and steady determined guitar playing set him miles apart from other artists on the scene. While his training as a percussionist shines through in every note making up the forceful rhythms of his music.

Enjoying incredible local success in Halifax, the capital of Atlantic rock, has propelled him all over the world. Even sharing the stage with ECMA multi nominee and winner David Myles at the prestigious music festival Riverfest and at Java Jam with ECMA winner Christina Martin.

Though his talent has earned him performances in Europe, the United States, and the Caribbean, Ian has always felt his most rewarding gigs have always been charity centered here in Canada. In 2007 he lent his talents to Bands for Breast Cancer, and was even featured on CTV. In 2008 he showcased his abilities during the Human Rights Torch Relay concert in protest of China's abysmal human rights record and their being awarded the Olympic Games by the International Olympic Committee.

Though he takes his career as a musician seriously, he's never afraid to have some fun, as he fronted Nova Scotia's favorite Kiss tribute Dressed 2 Kill.

While remaining active locally and playing a whopping 180 solo shows in 2009, most of Ian's energies are currently being poured into finishing his First solo album in the fall of this year. "I like to think of myself as an open musician. I don’t want my music to become stale, so I’m always trying to expand on my styles and keep pushing myself."
