Coverage ranges from Gig reviews, news and artist features to Festival reviews, photos, features and CD release reviews for most of the Blues Press outlets in Europe and the rest of the world.

Among the many publications to feature recent material are leading UK blues magazines, including Blues Matters; Blues In Britain; The Scottish Review (UK); Blues&Co/Autrement Blues (France); Jefferson Blues Magazine (Sweden); The Brooklyn Daily Eagle (New York daily newspaper) (USA); European Blues Reporter/ Commentator for Award winning UK FM Radio Blues show - Gary Grainger Blues on Bishop FM.

In addition, Iain’s work has also been broadcast by BBC national radio and television. His deep knowledge of the music comes from over forty years of research, listening, absorbing and even playing guitar. There are few, if any, journalists with such a solid grounding in the genre in Europe: credits include leading Chicago-based blues label, Alligator, recording artists who include material in their Press Packs and/or sleeve notes.

He knows and is known by many leading performers on the road, and has sound, reliable contacts with many recording companies and organizations promoting the music, its players and performers.
