Completing his bachelor of Entertainment at the top of his class in 2010 was by no means the fist step in lain's career, already a certified sound engineer, he had already been playing and recording guitar and vocals for ten years. It was however a great reassurance that this was indeed his calling. Shortly after graduating Iain started his own band (Iain Archibald Band) in late 2010, since then and to this day, he has toured Australia from end to end, playing some of the country’s biggest festivals, releasing three albums and supported some of Australia’s biggest names. His unique bass baritone voice, impressive lead guitar skills, songwriting and friendly, charismatic personality helped him secure a reputation as a hard working, reliable and impressive showman. His songwriting was on display when Spotify selected the band’s second single to be in the ‘fresh country’ playlist for 8 consecutive months. In August 2020 due to the COVID pandemic Iain was forced to keep his craft more confined to the recording studio, where in under a month he became one of the most sort after feature/ lead vocalists on online, the next month his guitar playing became a highly requested service, due to his unique perspective of being a singer/ songwriter/ guitarist.
