On A Life In Song, legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Ian Thomas looks back on a hits-heavy catalogue spanning more than four decades. This is a retrospective with a difference, though. Rather than being simply a greatest hits collection, A Life In Song features dramatic orchestral reinterpretations of Thomas musically and lyrically eloquent material. Along with producer Peter Cardinali, Ian recorded these new versions with the acclaimed Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. "Our goal was to integrate the song right into the orchestra or in some cases to use the orchestra to underscore the lyric," Thomas explains. The album features songs that were hits for both Thomas and such artists as Santana, America, Chicago and Manfred Mann's Earth Band plus more recent material and one brand new composition, "So Cold In The City." The result is a record destined to both thrill longtime fans and make new converts.
