Album review: IAN DANTER – Prove You Wrong

Ian Danter is better known for his radio work as he presents a weekly show, ‘Football First’ on talkSPORT. This album is a collection of songs he has been working on for the past ten years or more and he has been spurred on to release them following the recent passing of some friends including Shy’s Steve Harris. In fact keeping the Shy theme going, the band’s vocalist Lee Small sings on all but three of the albums fifteen songs.

Ian Danter not content to play most of the instruments on the album also sings on three songs, including the title track and the album’s stand out tune. A nice up tempo modern rocker that is a highly addictive tune even after just one listen. Elsewhere the music has a more classic rock feel, a little Rainbow and Deep Purple influences can be heard on ‘Cloud 9’ and ‘Stronger Than That’, both aided greatly by Lee Small’s vocals sounding like Glenn Hughes a lot of the time, which is no bad thing!

An enjoyable listen and hopefully he has a few more songs lined up as it would be a shame to have to wait another ten years or so for more music from him.
