Ian Lees - Bass Guitarist

Early in his career, Ian played with numerous semi-professional bands. On becoming fully professional, he was a founding member of the very successful band, MOVING PICTURES.

MOVING PICTURES were credited with a No. 1 national Album, "Days of Innocence" and a single that stayed at the top of the album charts for seven weeks. Internationally, the band made inroads into the United States & Japan. The single, "What About Me" reached No. 20 on the Billboard Charts before the inauspicious collapse of the distribution company.

Ian has played and studied a variety of styles which have led to teaching and recording work. In 1991, Ian played fretless bass on the movie soundtrack "GREEN CARD".

Another long-standing credit is "CHASIN' THE TRAIN". It is rewarding for Ian to be a part of this line-up……
