The couple, Chris Turpin & Stephanie Jean, have embraced a new musical world with Ida Mae: after a long period of self-discovery in which they explored and combined the shared creative resources, they came back with Ida Mae, up to create the bone-worn version of music. Ida Mae's magic lies in the sensitive and sensual interlocking of two elusive voices as well as the intimacy of their songs. Their chemistry on stage is not a dramaturgical pose, it is a bewitching sight to watch them. Chris' vocals are reminiscent of Steve Marriott or the Rod Stewart of the Faces era, Stephanie combines the fine peculiarities of a Patty Griffin with the effortless rock aplomb of Alison Mosshart. When they sing together, there is often a 'who's who-dynamics'. Really rare and valuable, such voices - and especially a combination of these.
