Ian's Story

Ian Gallagher was born in London but at an early age went to live in Santa Barbara, California USA with his parents until the age of seven. Ian’s lifelong love of music began one evening in America whilst watching Frank Sinatra on TV with his father. After one of Sinatra’s legendary TV performances Ian, who was at the time only 6, turned to his father and said ‘that’s what I am going to be – a singer’.

When he was 16 he was chosen for the part of the big band singer in the film ‘Yanks’ which featured Richard Gere. The movie was a huge box office success, and firmly set Ian on the road as one of the leading singers of his generation.

In the following years Ian has fronted his own jazz quartet and taken starring roles in stage musicals such as West Side Story. He has also been a regular session singer with the BBC’s live orchestra and went on to be featured male vocalist on BBC’s Radio 2.

Ian has performed at the famous London Palladium, The Talk of the Town and the Savoy to name but a few. He was the only male vocalist invited to perform to the British Troops during the First Gulf War period.

Having a vocal range of nearly four octaves, he has been able to transform both contemporary and standard tunes into a style that makes him an individual performer constantly being in demand as an international artiste.
