The son of a Welsh philosophy professor at McMaster University and a Scottish mother, Ian Thomas was born July 23, 1950 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. His brother Dave is an actor, famous for his Second City and Strange Brew movie character, Doug McKenzie.
At age six, Ian was taking piano lessons, and 13 he took up guitar. A year later, he began writing songs. Still in his teens, he arranged music for the Hamilton Philharmonic orchestra. He's also performed with the Hamilton orchestra and the Toronto Symphony orchestra.
By the mid ‘60s, Ian formed a group that became Tranquillity Base and in the late ‘60s he penned the hit single If You're Lookin'.
