Ahead of their performance and ‘Album Of The Year’ nomination at the Americana Music Awards this week, Ida Mae have announced a UK and Ireland tour which will include a show at London’s Bush Hall on 22nd April.
Whilst on the road, Ida Mae also recorded a live EP – ‘Live In Memphis’ is out now on Thirty Tigers.
2019 was a hugely successful year for Chris and Steph, the extremely talented duo that are Ida Mae. As well as releasing their debut album in June, Ida Mae played 80 US shows and 35 UK/EU shows supporting the likes of Josh Ritter, Greta Van Fleet, Alison Krauss, Nikki Lane and Willie Nelson to name a few. Their success on the road made it possible to go on a headline tour less than 6 months after the album release, a remarkable feat for a British Band launching in UK and US simultaneously.
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 this year and new music in the works, 2020 is set to look even brighter for the pair.
