IAN MOSS Six Strings goes Gold + 2016 tour dates announced

SIX STRINGS GOES GOLD

+ SIX STRINGS CLASSIC

2016 TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

 

“Only once in a blue moon would I try doing a solo show in the old days, and that was with an electric guitar. I thought it would be easy but it wasn’t. You have to reappraise the whole thing, play differently, change your solo style. You have to go back to the song, look at what the lyrics are about, find a new way to express them. It’s a real challenge, but a rewarding one.”

 

That was Ian Moss circa 2005 as he prepared himself to record and then tour the brilliant ‘Six Strings’ album. And now, a fast-flying ten years after its initial release the album has just been certified Gold by ARIA with sales in excess of 35,000 units!

 

And to celebrate the occasion, producer George Gorga has uncovered an additional bunch of songs from the original recording sessions including five tracks that weren’t on the original release: Jealous Guy (originally by John Lennon), Shape I’m In, Piccolo Bar, Tempted (originally by Squeeze) and Such A Beautiful Thing plus alternative versions of Catfish Blues and My Baby.

 

Recorded at Sydney’s Sandringham Hotel with a Maton 808 acoustic guitar, three pick-ups, three microphones, and some of the greatest throat strings this country has ever heard. Cold Chisel greats, platinum solo singles, new songs and classic songs from Hendrix and Creedence were rendered with an impossibly warm timbre and bluesy lilt that are instantly recognisable, but with a thrilling sense of immediacy. Six Strings became an instant classic from one of Australia’s true rock legends.

 

Still respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, 5 times ARIA winner Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable live sound – not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul.

 

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.

 

And to continue the 10th Anniversary of Six Strings Ian Moss is very happy to announce that he is heading out on the road on an extensive solo tour from late February.

 

Ian will be performing all of the classic hits from that renowned ‘Six Strings’ album as well as the big hitters form his ‘Let’s All Get Together’ and ‘Soul on West 53rd’ albums. The show will include all the Cold Chisel / Ian Moss classics, performed as only Ian can.

 

The Six Strings Classic tour will be the perfect intimate setting for audiences to experience the powerfully resonating classic songs of Cold Chisel and Ian Moss.
