Sounds | Ida Mae, Road To Avalon


Daar zijn ze terug, Christopher en Stephanie Jean, met een meer ingetogen sfeervol nummer. Road To Avalon wordt gedragen door de mooie samenzang van beide, Chris op z'n banjolele en kalimba, Stephanie Jean op haar mellotron en de sobere ritmesectie van Nick Pini en Ethan Johns. De prachtige video is trouwens van de hand van Stephanie Jean.

Hailing from Norfolk, U.K., Ida Mae are an acoustic alt-folk duo made up of husband-and-wife Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean Turpin. Delivering romantic and atmospheric songs with resonant guitar and passionate vocals, the pair owe their influences to the sound of Americana and deep South blues-rock. Their work can be heard on their 2019 debut LP Chasing Lights. The duo already worked together putting out three albums as Kill It Kid, in Bath, Somerset. He decided to try something new with Jean and the pair spent time writing and recording their own material -- it was quite a sonic departure from Kill It Kid (who were more influenced by alternative rock and grunge). After having amassed enough material, the pair put out their debut single, "Reaching," in early 2019. The track found the duo delving more deeply into the sound of country blues pioneers such as Son House and Robert Johnson. The song was featured on their first LP, Chasing Lights, which arrived in June of that year. (bron: allmusic.com)
