Ida Mae: 20h
X-Tra Musikcafe, Zürich
In collaboration with Ishtar Music
As Ida Mae, Turpin and Ward have found further acclaim with their bold sound that straddles classic English folk, sprawling Americana and abrasive, frenetic rock. A move to Nashville in 2019 led to the release of their debut Chasing Lights, produced by Ethan Johns (producer of Laura Marling, Kings of Leon, Ray Lamontagne).
This is the spectacular third album from the British folk-rock duo, Thunder Above You (REL: 25.08.23). The album was recorded in just seven days and marks the most creative phase in Ida Mae's career to date. It was preceded by a month-long tour of the USA with legendary artists such as Willie Nelson and Lucinda Williams. Ida Mae are husband and wife duo Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean Ward. They met while studying at university, quickly found their shared passion for music and later formed their first band, Kill It Kid. With three critically acclaimed albums under their belts, they spent their early twenties touring Europe extensively.
