Album Notes
POLARITY is the latest release by Western Australia based Ian Cocker and The Times. This collection of songs is packaged into an easy listening mix of genres. From the slightly jazz influenced opening track ‘Through My Skin’; to the earthy African inspired instrumental ‘Oh Rick’, POLARITY is a journey that showcases reggae (Low Key), soft rock (Go Jimmy); soul (My Lane); ballad (You Blue Me Away); and bluey tones (Pale Blue). There is not only a mixture of beats per minute, but the heart beat of a mature songwriter and a group of very experienced and adaptable musicians.

POLARITY is both in-depth and light-hearted and displays numerous shades.

The Times consist of a number of members who played with The Expression (Neville Dowling (keyboards/backing vocals/percussion/mandolin); Guy Slingerland (drums/percussion/backing vocals); Stephen Manassah (bass/digital percussion)). Their talents are supplemented by electric guitar virtuoso Trevor Jalla and the wonderful Sarah Risdon on backing vocals.

Ian Cocker penned all twelve tracks , sings and plays guitar/ percussion.

POLARITY was recorded in WA at Stephen Manassah’s What It Is Group (WIIG) Factory. Manassah also mixes and co-produces the album with Cocker. POLARIY was mastered in Sydney at Turtlerock Mastering.

Take the time to listen to this one. It is special.

Impressive release featuring soulful harmonies
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.
