Ian James Stewart is a guitarist, composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, but, basically, the general melodic public knows him as the lead guitarist and main songwriter of the legendary AOR act Strangeways in the mid 80's.

In his new release which is entitled "Junk DNA", Ian put all his influences that he grew up with and he mixes them in such a way that in the end he succeeds to release a solid album that may not excite but it certainly does not go unnoticed.

Having been a fan of IJS's talent for many years, this album demonstrates superb creativity in Ian's song writing and the sounds are fantastic which will not disappoint. Brilliant guitar riffs you can't get enough of! Incredible vocals and story telling of the tracks makes his music so interesting and addictive. Title track 'If this is life' is just one if my favourites. Highly recommend buying this album.
