* AUSLAN INTERPRETED *
Respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound–not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul. While primarily recognised as an axeman of unusual tenacity and sweet melodic sensibility, Ian’s distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse–as it has been since his first tentative foray into music during the early 1970s. Enjoying the status of Australia’s best guitarist, Moss carefully evolved into a solo artist oft he same calibre and commanding the same respect as Cold Chisel. After five years of patient nurturing, Moss released his debut singleTucker’s Daughter in January 1989, and caused an immediate sensation. The anthemic song–which Moss wrote in collaboration with Don Walker–sat in the Top 10 for 11 weeks and hit No 1 for two weeks, achieving gold sales status after 15 weeks and selling more than 73,000 copies. Moss’s second solo single,Telephone Booth, was released in June that year, hit the Top 10 and remained in the Top 20 for 10 weeks.
