Ian Motha is a singer/songwriter, self- taught multi-instrumentalist from the south coast of Massachusetts. Since 2008, he has been performing and writing songs. Ian began his career performing in local pool bars, dance halls and house parties, eventually finding his way on stage at the world-famous Whiskey a Go Go in Los Angeles and The Cavern in Liverpool, England. He performs regularly in Providence, Boston, Cape Cod and Newport. In addition to his solo work, Ian plays guitar and sings for The Beatles tribute band the Oh Nos.  As a member of the Oh Nos, Ian shared billings with Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork of the Monkees, Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders, and Susan Cowsill of the Cowsills. Along with his band, Ian had the honor of sharing a stage with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Greg Hawkes of The Cars. The Oh Nos have become a crowd favorite at various theaters and festivals.

Because of his versatility and vast knowledge of Beatles music, Ian is often called by local artists to fill in on bass guitar, rhythm or lead guitar, or keyboards. 


Ian’s original music is influenced by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Oasis, John Mayer, The Strokes, and The Kooks. His music weaves song structures of the 1960’s with melodic bass lines, and is decorated with colorful guitar work, and 80’s sounding synthesizers.  Ian began song writing at a young age and has continued to work on his craft for many years.  He has released several songs with his former bands, The Anchors and Apples. His original music has been featured on local radio stations including the former WBRU of Providence, Rhode Island.
