CD Central is excited to present an intimate in-store performance and signing by British Americana duo Ida Mae on Saturday, June 8 at 3 p.m. The timing is awesome: their new album “Chasing Lights” will be released the day before, and they’ll be fresh off a tour with Greta Van Fleet and prepping for an appearance at Bonnaroo the next week!
Blending elements of vintage Delta blues and gritty rock and roll with boldly modern arrangements and fearless punk swagger, their record captures Ida Mae in its purest form, with Turpin and his longtime musical partner Stephanie Jean performing nearly everything live in the studio under the guidance of legendary producer Ethan Johns (Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon). It’s an electrifying collection, the kind of record that feels both familiar and groundbreaking all at once, fueled by dazzling musicianship, breathtaking harmonies, and the sort of versatile, timeless songwriting that’s earned the band tour dates with everyone from Greta Van Fleet and Blackberry Smoke to Marcus King and The Lone Bellow.
