He made two solo albums before joining Snow Patrol, co-writing Ivor Novello Award winning album ‘Final Straw’, including top 5 single ‘Run’ (UK No 1 for Leona Lewis). Iain produced & co-wrote tracks on Jake Bugg’s Mercury Music Prize nominated, No.1 debut album, including singles ‘Lightning Bolt,’ ‘Taste It’ & ‘Trouble Town’, receiving an Ivor Novello Award Nomination for ‘Two Fingers’.
