Cherry Red Records

Rating: B

Who in the heck is Ian Danter and just how did he put out a modern day, Mott the Hoople meets hard rocking blues album?  Seriously, the harmony guitar riffs coupled with the enticing harmony vocals really make you sit up and pay attention.  This is part pop, part prog and part rock.  And it comes out of nowhere.

To be truthful, plenty of people in the UK know who Ian is, but not for making killer rock and roll music.  Danter is famous radio jock presenting in his homeland.  Now, he has released Prove You Wrong, which one has to assume is his answer to anyone who told him he was crazy to think he could make an album, let alone one this good.

This radio presenter is actually quite a talented musician.  He wrote the songs and he plays most of the instruments and sings a few songs as well.  This one is quite a surprise as when you least expect it…expect Ian Danter!
