Ian Lloyd was born in Seattle to a musical family. Proud of the fact that his family is comprised of three generations who all performed at Carnegie Hall, he can truly say music is in their ‘blood.’ Ian sang lead for the band Stories, formed with Michael Brown in the early 70’s. Their first hit was “I’m Coming Home” followed by their #1 smash hit “Brother Louie” and then “Mammy Blue.” With Stories, Ian performed on a number of TV shows including “American Bandstand” and the “Midnight Special.” “Brother Louie” can also be heard on a number of feature film soundtracks.
Black Mountain release the second single from their much anticipated forthcoming album Wilderness Heart on 11th October.

A joyous and uplifting track, (‘Let your laws come undone, Don’t suffer your crimes, Let the love in your heart take control”) – this is the embodiment of what NME described as ‘pumping fresh blood into vintage sounds’.
