  IAN SUTHERLAND

ian sutherland

Music has been a mainstay of my life since I was a kid and rock and Metal especially have been a lifelong passion. I'm no kid anymore but my passion has increased if anything and I'm going to as many shows and buying as many albums as ever.

I've always found ways to be around music and musicians, having no talent myself it's important to find a way in! I have roadied, reviewed, been a dj, even been a runner for a singer (translates as going to get the wine in mostly!). These days I'm lucky enough to get to hang out with some of the smaller bands I'm into and here I am back reviewing again to share my passion and see who I end up meeting through it.

My motto is if the band won't come to your town go find them, life is too short not to fit in as many gigs and road trips as you can! Rock on \m/
