Brocks Talent series2

Ian is a local musician, I say local, that is local to Southampton, with an incredible amount of talent.He does excellent covers but he is in his element writing and singing his own material. I have been lucky enough to see him play at a couple of venues. I was that impressed I had to do a little research, and because of my findings I contacted him to ask if he would mind me doing a post on him and his music. May I suggest that everyone checks out his links to be able to enjoy more of what I have posted here.  


We all know one of the hardest things to do is actually letting people know you’re out there in the first place, so please do spread the word. As a singer songwriter myself, my era now beyond me, believe I know how difficult this can be. Even with all the modern technology.

I asked Ian if he would like to add some personal words and he replied with the statement  –

“Ah okay cool. Well I’m a singer/songwriter from  Southampton specializing in acoustic music with strong vocals at the forefront. My music is typically played with passion, and emotive by nature. I released by debut EP “Seven Notes” in August, and have just started work on my new EP which I’m looking forward to. I’ve been performing  in a wide variety of places especially over the last 6 months. I’m looking forward to further promoting myself and playing wherever I can during 2014. My point of contact is through my ianbookermusic fb page, but you can also find out more about me on my website ( where there are links  to my you tube, Soundcloud,  Twitter etc. Cheers :)”

Lastly all I can say now is “I wish Ian all the success for the coming year and future. He certainly has the standard, the quality and ability to be a success. So please check him and his sites and especially his music and let him know.
