“We wanted to make something simple and honest and raw,” says Chris Turpin, one half of the
breakout British duo Ida Mae. “We wanted to make a record our way, with no compromises.”
That brand of fiercely unconditional commitment—to the songs, to the sound, to each other—
has defined Ida Mae from the start, and it courses through the veins of the band’s brilliant debut,
‘Chasing Lights.’ Blending elements of vintage Delta blues and gritty rock and roll with boldly
modern arrangements and fearless punk swagger, the 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 fromGreta Van Fleet and Blackberry Smoke to Marcus King and The Lone
Bellow.
As long as Steph and I have known each other, this is what we’ve done,” reflects Turpin, who
recently relocated from London to Nashville with Jean.“‘Chasing Lights’ is a metaphor for
everything we’ve been after, for tracing the footsteps of our heroes, for making a life and a living
on our own terms.”
