Mad City Sessions: Anna Laube & Ida Jo


When: Thursday, April 16th 6pm
Where: Overture Hall Main Lobby
What:

Anna Laube is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer from Madison, Wisconsin whose music has been featured on NPR, C|Net/Download.com, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Wisconsin Public Television, and XM/Sirius Satellite Radio. She has toured internationally and her songs have received radio airplay worldwide.

A violinist since the age of seven and an avid yogini, Ida Jo’s music is expressive and groove-oriented, bearing the marks of the southern rock and folk that influenced her. By combining her “innovative violin work and her soulful vocals” (AV Club)—“Her voice has the vibrancy of Adele with the soul of Joss Stone” (Relate Magazine)—with a healthy dose of individuality and a stubborn indie spirit, Ida Jo has earned the title of 2013 WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year, presented at TEDx, and been published in the Huffington Post.
