Staying In TUNE
I have been a huge fan, and one can say I am biased to their sound; well, addicted is a much better description lol. This unique, alternative, indie rock entity has garnered attention globally in just a
1 year span on the scene. Signed with Rosner Management in British Columbia, appeared on Rosner Rise Up Tour in 2016, are climbing Radio Charts around the globe, pretty damn impressive!! These seasoned musical vets come from all walks of life and backgrounds musically, yet combine their talents smoothly together creating some recognizable & blazing hot tuneage.
Give a listen, you will be pleased you did. Ian Kurz and Ian-K have a 3rd album about to drop!
Ian KurzIs lead singer/guitarist that has been playing in popular bands across Ontario for years. Having experience as a drummer as well, and a basic understanding of the piano and music theory in general, he is able to write rock songs that can be as simple as your standard "guitar rock" type of song, or he can write with a fuller production in mind, encompassing the use of keyboard pads, strings etc, to make his songs sound bigger. The only instrument he does not play himself on the tracks you hear on this site is the bass guitar, and the drums in the song "Linger" for which he enlists the help of several friends, otherwise bass is programmed by Ian via MIDI. Likewise for the drums. Although Ian did spend years drumming in the drum corps, he sometimes chooses to use the talents of several drummer friends, or conversely, he will program the drums via MIDI files. Ian has been receiving airplay at commercial radio across the country for his singles 'Yesterday' and 'Never Let Me Go' from coast to coast in Canada, as well as in Europe. His single 'Linger' had received airplay in the US via the Live365 network, and subsequently broke onto the National Radio Airplay Top 50 Rock Charts in February of 2015, peaking at #31. "Your Hero" peaked at #18 of the TOP 100 Best European Indie Charts, and hit #11 on the Q108 Kingston's TOP 50 INDIE ROCK songs of 2016. Ian is an accomplished player and has shared the stage with some of the bigger Canadian names in the business, and has performed to thousands of people. You will find Ian in the Canadian tribute music scene as well, where he currently plays the part of Paul Stanley in the Canadian KISS tribute band, DESTROYER.
