  "Polarity" by Ian Cocker and The Times (Pop Artist from Australia)
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 09 May 2009 05:35 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Ian Cocker and The Times with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Polarity"

Ian Cocker and The Times have released their latest easy listening/pop album “Polarity.” This album features well-written lyrics with catchy melodies while blending different genres of music. Vocals are cool and relaxed, which shows the versatility covering this select style of music. Harmonies are sweet and polished while never overpowering the lead vocals. The chemistry within this group of musicians is genuine as they perform with consistent tonality and rock-solid sounds. Feel the cool jazz on “Through My Skin” with the crisp sound of the ride cymbal and flavorful chord progressions on the piano. Catch the bluesy guitar licks and soulful organ stabs as they play harmonic progressions on “My Lane.” You won’t want to miss hearing Ian Cocker and The Times’ “Polarity,” especially if you’re of fan of Sting or John Mayer, as it captures a little jazz, blues, and soft rock.

  Hello - is there anybody out there??!!
POSTED BY: Ian Cocker POSTED ON: 11 Jan 2009 07:59 PM

It is Monday afternoon 13.10pm to be precise (January 12 2009).

I'm sitting here looking at  my 2 new creations - Polarity (12 tracks) and the Faded Memories Single (2 tracks).

I need to get these songs out there to you - amidst the relentless wave of music production where my little tunes are a mere molecule (smaller than a drop) in the ocean ... and ... and ... your lives are soooo busy - you hardly have time to scratch - let alone listen.

My chances of you reading this, or hearing these pieces of me is comparable to the physical alignments required to trigger the Big Bang. But as an eternal optimist I'm gonna give it a shot and stand on the shore of Bunbury, Western Australia, waiting for a bottle to return.

And maybe ... just maybe .... a Big Wheel out there in www land, with influence over my destiny as a musican, will listen (whilst muching o a kebab) and say:

"Y'know ..... this needs more salt ....".
