This Roy Orbison tribute act is a truly international artist with tours of Australia, Canada, Europe and the Middle East, with Starring Regional & West End Theatre credits to his name. Iain began his singing career performing backing vocals for Barry Manilow (Albert Hall & Wembley Arena) and Sting at the Brit awards.
He starred as Roy Orbison in ‘The Concert They Never Gave’ for E&B productions (Buddy! – West End) on several UK tours including appearances in West End Theatres.
In 2005 Iain played Orbison in Perth, Australia with a 20 piece orchestra – the booker searched the world for the ‘best Roy’ & chose Iain as his first choice – supported by Johnny Earle the Elvis voice of Pepsi. Iain performed on live TV as Roy with Westlife in 2007 for BBC1 (one of many TV appearances) and spent most of 2009 touring in Europe & the UK with several different theatre shows.
Iain’s performance as Roy Orbison has been reviewed the world over to great acclaim. People often think he’s miming to Roy’s original recordings. Some say he brings more to the role than just the look and sound of Roy and adds much of the essence of the fabulous Roy Orbison as well.
Iain’s staggering four and a half octave vocal range and powerful, crystal clear voice enable him to recreate the early iconic vocal sound of Roy Orbison when he was at his very best. Check out the high notes in ‘Crying’ and you will hear why Iain is generally regarded as the best in the business all over the world. He played Roy in the hit theatre show ‘The Concert They Never Gave” including numerous performances London’s West End theatres and on a variety of other theatre shows, TV adverts & shows including Alan Carr, Westlife (BBC1) The Big Breakfast & many more.

We all had a brilliant time with Iain yesterday. He gave us an afternoon of great music which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. My 90 year old mother had an amazing time. Iain is a lovely person and was great to chat with. My guests enjoyed talking to him. We will recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment. Thank you so much for your support and help with the booking. - Private Party
