The subtle alchemy of Ida 2 takes the listener on a musical journey that has its roots in bluegrass, folk, country and Americana. Although to define the work as simply one of these genres is not possible as the musicianship takes you on a journey that touches each of these styles with precision - leaving a fresh perspective and wanting more.
The well-crafted and mostly all original selections on Ida 2 cover the universal themes of love, loss, struggle, discovery, and independence, taking the listener to new heights and places yet to be seen and heard.
This self-titled recording is the first for this bluegrassy Americana band. The work is all-original, written by mandolin player, Jim Wheatley, with co-writing help by guitarist and lead vocalist, Lea Cockrell. This first effort from Ida Clare is something different. It will make you want to dance, make you think, and give you reason for hope. This new music is more than just a recording, more than just some new songs, it’s an experience.
