Rocker, balladeer, author and “Classic Songwriter” Award- winner, Ian Hunter has a diamond-studded and matchless repertoire.
Ian Hunter was one of the most inventive rock writers of the early ’70s paving the way for the decade’s “New Wave” with his thought-provoking, honest and gritty songs. As a solo performer he has also succeeded with an impressive catalogue of superb albums and a dedicated following.
Ian Hunter was the musical and lyrical powerhouse in Mott the Hoople, one of rock’s most valuable groups. He subsequently rejected lucrative offers to reform the band and resisted posts with Uriah Heep and The Doors as he carved out an enviable solo repertoire. He has been cited as a major inspiration for numerous artists including The Clash, Def Leppard, Kiss, R.E.M., Oasis, Motley Crue, Blur and Primal Scream. His musical influence remains immeasurable with over 150 different cover versions of songs from his astonishing archive and he has worked with many musical legends including Queen, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, John Cale, Mick Ronson, David Sanborn and Ringo Starr.
Hunter’s work contains some of the most intelligent lyrics ever penned in rock and roll and he remains a priceless figure on the musical landscape. Classic Rock’s ‘Classic Songwriter Award’ and his recent albums and performances are testament to Ian Hunter’s importance and relentless artistic quality.
