Biografia

Formed in 1992 by the core duo of singers/guitarists Daniel Littleton and Elizabeth Mitchell, Ida is an indie folk-pop act hailing from New York. Littleton emerged in 1985 as a member of the Annapolis, MA-based punk group the Hated; after their 1989 demise, he continued in a series of bands including Three Shades of Dirty, Choke, and Slack, which also featured future Tsunami frontwoman Jenny Toomey. Mitchell, meanwhile, began performing as one half of an acoustic duo with singer/songwriter (and fellow Brown University alum) Lisa Loeb. Both Mitchell and Littleton later played on Loeb’s breakthrough hit “Stay,” which became a smash hit during the same year as Ida’s debut.

After signing to Toomey’s Simple Machines label, Ida introduced their sound in 1994 with Tales of Brave Ida, a luminous collection of languid, minimalist pop songs. Following the addition of Littleton’s brother Michael (formerly of Baltimore’s Hassassins) on drums, they returned in 1996 with the stunning I Know About You. The addition of Beekeeper bassist Karla Schickele preceded 1997’s brilliant Ten Small Paces, and that same lineup resurfaced a year later with an EP, Losing True. While still a member of Ida, Dan Littleton also played in Liquorice with Toomey and His Name Is Alive’s Trey Many; additionally, he and Mitchell were wed in late 1999, shortly after brother Michael’s exit from the group. Following an ill-fated major label stay at Capitol, Ida finally released the full-length Will You Find Me on the Tiger Style imprint in the summer of 2000.

    I know I posted about this a year and a half ago, but I thought I'd try again! Ida fans! Have you heard Karla Schickele's 2012 record "History Grows"....if you love her Ida compositions like "This Water", "Man in Mind", "Firefly", "What Can I Do", and "Honeyslide", you will find much to love on her new solo record! Karla has made it available to listen online here. The first six songs are Schickele songs and the last 4 are covers. http://vivakmusic.bandcamp.com

    Hi all! So Karla Schickele is Ida bassist/pianist/sometimes singer/sometimes songwriter who has written 12 Ida songs: "Fallen Arrow, Poor Dumb Bid, Tiger Dare, Be Careful, This Water, Man In Mind, Firefly, Arrowheads, What Can I Do, Honeyslide, Gravity, and Still Life"....she has a new album out for her other band 'k.' called "History Grows...and it is amazing! If you like any of the Ida songs I listed above, you would love the new k. album, especially the tune "Click and Slap", which i think is the best song Karla Schickele has ever written including her compositions in Ida, k. and 90s indie rock band Beekeeper...the new k. album is available to for sale on bandcamp: http://vivakmusic.bandcamp.com

    Go to the forums, several bandpages had these problems with changes to all-caps for no reason.

    yeah, it is kinda weird. After i checked their artwork, it is "Ida" not "IDA" or maybe it is refferred to other band? Anyway, which Ida that we are talking about, the slowcore one right? I'm kinda confused here :|

    I saw them perform live in Boston on New Year's Eve after only having heard of them once or twice, and was very impressed. It was a very intimate setting, they were quite amusing on stage, and the music was fantastic. I spoke with Daniel for probably half an hour after the show (during which they played "I Know About You" in its entirety), and briefly with the other members, all of whom were amusing and exceptionally nice. 'Twas a great introduction and I look very much forward to exploring their music!

    It is nice to know that they are still active. I thought they were in the state of hiatus or something.
