Ian Thomas

Ian Thomas (born 23 July 1950, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) is a singer, songwriter, actor and author. He is younger brother to famed comedian and actor Dave Thomas.

Thomas was a successful rock and roll musician in Canada during the 1970s, with his most memorable hit being 1973's "Painted Ladies". Success in the American market, however, has proven to be elusive with the possible exception of "Painted Ladies", which remains his only U.S. Top 40 hit, and the song "Runner" which was recorded by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. He has also done musical composition for about a dozen films and television shows. Before breaking through with "Painted Ladies", he was a producer at the CBC. Before that, he was part of the folk music group Tranquillity Base.

In 1974 he won a Juno Award for "Most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year".
