Iain Robert MacLeod
Iain is an Edinburgh based musician who self produces his own Music. He also records other musicians from his home studio and is a Music teacher.
Iain has played in many bands and projects over the years ranging from indie Hip-Hop outfit Jibba Jabba to Folk singer Robin Grey to “Sudanese Songstress” Amira Kheir. He currently plays with moon-rock groove monsters The Sound Rays.
He fell in love with the Guitar from the age of 10 and as a teenager was inspired by Guitar work John Squire and Jimi Hendrix and Slash. Later, he studied World Music at SOAS university and here he was exposed to everything from Indian Raga to West African Blues. He spent several years teaching and playing Music in London and soaking up all the variety and influences the city had to offer.
Iain’s first two solo releases, “Phone Recordings” (2016) and “Kicked Out of Class” (2019), were of a rough and ready acoustic nature focusing on a rootsy live sound. “Phone Recordings” is a collection of Slide Guitar instrumentals that got written while busking around Hackney between 2012 - 15. The sound has been compared to John Fahey and Jack Rose. “Kicked Out of Class” features a full band and was made with the help of some fantastic musicians from Edinburgh and London. He is currently working on new material and exploring new sounds in the studio…
