Ian Quinn – Singer Songwriter

untitled‘IAN QUINN releases first single from new album

The Last 100 Years’, the first single to be released from Ian Quinn’s upcoming album Sign of the Times, reflects on the century since Australians fought in Gallipoli.
Did we forget or just ignore, how many died and what for?
Where has it gone, where did it go? Something’s not quite right you know.
Ian Quinn is an award winning singer-songwriter based in Karumba, in Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria.
He was recognised with a Golden Guitar in 2008, inducted into the Country Music Hands of Fame in 2009, and his compositions have been recorded by many well known artists including the late Slim Dusty.
His latest release ‘The Last 100 Years’ isn’t a war song; but 1914 marks the beginning of a century of change back home on Australian soil where our land is sold off, factories shut down, and our stories lost.
We’ve lost the farms, mined the land, sold nearly everything we can;
Shut the factories in our towns, nothing much left now to close down.
Over the last three decades Ian Quinn has forged a career not only in country music, but also as a commercial fisherman in an industry struggling with fishing ground closures and cheap imports.
“We can’t compete with overseas countries and we can’t compete with the wages they pay,” Ian said.
On drifting tides upon the seas, closures and imports stole our dreams.
We wrote the songs and sang them proud; sing them still, but not as loud.
Ian feels there are fewer writers of this generation committed to capturing the Australian lifestyle.
“Where have the great Australian songs and verse gone? The Lawson’s, the Paterson’s, the Joy McKean’s?
This song by Ian Quinn is one of loss. As a fisherman, as a songwriter, and as the son of a war veteran, his father a Rat of Tobruk, it’s a theme he feels deeply connected with, and a story he says needed to be told.
‘The Last 100 Years’ was produced and recorded by Roger Corbett at The Valley Studio in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, and recorded by Sam Wright at The Rec Room in Townsville, QLD.
Ian Quinn’s 7th full length studio album Sign of the Times is due for release in June this year.
