Ida Mae Debut Album ‘Chasing Lights’ Nominated for Americana UK’s ‘ALBUM OF THE YEAR’ + Play London’s Bush Hall 22nd April 2020

In the midst of their headline US tour, Ida Mae have announced that they will play London’s Bush Hall on 22nd APRIL 2020, their biggest UK headline show to date! Their phenomenal debut album, ‘Chasing Lights’ is out now on Thirty Tigers and has been nominated for Americana Music UK’s ‘Album of the Year’ award. Listen to the album HERE. Whilst on the road, Ida Mae also recorded a live EP – ‘Live In Memphis’ will be released on 24th January 2020.

The duo last week released their sombre new track, ‘Baby I Need a Driver’, which is available exclusively on Amazon Music as part of their ‘Produced By’ series. The stunning track is produced by T-Bone Burnett.

Blending elements of vintage Delta blues and gritty rock and roll with boldly modern arrangements and fearless punk swagger, ‘Chasing Lights’ captures Ida Mae in its purest form. From the pulsating ‘Higher Than Light’ to the Beat poet-inspired ‘My Girl Is A Heartbreak’, ‘Chasing Lights’ is an impressive eclectic debut produced by the legendary Ethan Jones. Singing together, the couple have an unusual ‘which-is-which’ dynamic.

As well as being nominated for Americana Music UK’s ‘Album of the Year’, ‘Chasing Lights’ reached #1 on the Itunes Singer/Songwriter Album Charts and #8 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Album sales. With a ton of shows planned for next year and new music in the works, 2020 is set to look even brighter for the pair.

Tickets for Ida Mae’s show at London’s Bush Hall go on sale 10 am 15th November HERE
