With the determination of PUSHING THE COW OVER THE MOON, Ida began solo performing ‘live’ 2003 on Bridlington and Scarborough SEASIDE HARBOURS and within the city streets of YORK. All interspersed with open mic nights and supports, (JIM DIAMOND, SNAKE DAVIS, THE BLUETONES), 8 MONTHS later to 2x 40 minute) paid gigs. Performing ‘live’ unaided by backing, only her own words and music, (1-2 weekly gigs).

Ida‘s UNSELECTED audiences were equally hardy, which made this YORKSHIRE lass, from a FARMING background, all the more FEISTY, CREATIVE and all the more invigorated as an INSIGHTFUL singer-songwriter-guitarist.
