THE CURRENT by Ida Jo

Welcome! Thanks for visiting the Kickstarter for my new record, THE CURRENT! With each new record and year that goes by, I have the pleasure of writing new songs. These song are inspired by the communities I visit, the people I meet, the experiences I have. 

THE CURRENT is about the electricity that runs through each of us. It's about embracing the energy we have and finding surrender, light, forgiveness, passion and confidence. 

I am here to surrender

To the dark and to the light 

I am here to lay down my burden 

I am here to give up my fight

THE CURRENT is a reminder of the present. 

There's something to be said for this emptiness we fill

Deep in what we've got, we find our will

We are not pushing forward, we are not standing still

The money raised from this campaign will go to paying for the recording, packaging, distribution and promotion of THE CURRENT.

About me:

Ida Jo is a singer, violinist, writer and yogini. Touring extensively, she has performed on three continents and at festivals such as Milwaukee's Summerfest and South By Southwest. Ida Jo’s musical style builds on a long history of blending rock, folk, and gospel music. On violin, Ida Jo employs a seldom heard technique that is the combination of a folk fiddle style called “chopping” and her extensive classical training. She makes her home in Madison, WI and was named 2013 WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year. She was also named 2013 MAMA Folk/Americana Performer of the Year. Using her music to promote wellness, she has performed at Kripalu with acclaimed yoga teacher Rolf Gates, has been published in the Huffington Post and has presented at TEDx Madison.

I hope you'll consider joining me. Thank you for all the years of support!

Enjoy the music!
