About

Merseyside legend Ian Prowse is a singer/songwriter who wears his heart on his sleeve and writes straight from the cuff. He plays guitar and is frontman of Amsterdam, previously of indie cult band Pele.

Raised on the rallying cry of protest songs. Influenced by the Celtic sounds that make Liverpool so unique. And inspired by the song writing craftsmanship of Paul Weller, Mike Scott and Bruce Springsteen, it was no surprise, at the start of the 90s, when the rest of Britain was swaggering along to the baggy sound of The Stone Roses, Ian put together a band that marched to their own beat.

The result was Pele, a five-piece alternative rock ‘n’ pop band with an infusion of Celtic sounds, and a live show that became stuff of legend. They released 2 studio albums, 1 live album and 6 singles that lit up the bottom end of the UK charts, but literally exploded like fireworks all over the world.

The band split in 1996. Three years later Ian formed Amsterdam, it was to take another 5 years until they were signed to an independent label. During this time the band struck up a friendship with Elvis Costello, which saw them playing as his band on the Jonathan Ross Show, supporting his live shows and eventually recording a duet of ‘Don’t throw your love away’, originally a hit by the Searchers.
