“Click Click Domino”

Christopher Turpin and Stephanie Jean were in the Bath-based alternative rock band Kill It Kid who put out three fabulous albums. With a sonic attack that fell somewhere between Nirvana and The White Stripes, Kill It Kid were a ferocious live act that radiated intensity and heart. After the band called it a day Turpin and Jean formed the duo Ida Mae. Influenced by Delta Blues, JJ Cale, John Martyn and obscure British Folk, the band hit the ground running with their 2019 debut Chasing Lights. Having left their native England for the rich musical soil of Nashville, the band dug in and got to work, playing shows all over the world, including the Newport Folk Festival and opening slots for Willie Nelson, Greta Van Fleet and Blackberry Smoke.
They’ve recored with M. Ward and T Bone Burnett, been hailed by everyone from American Songwriter to Rolling Stone
and the release of their sophomore album Click Click Domino has cemented them as one of the most exciting bands around.
A wicked blend of bluesy howl, folky finesse and affecting harmonies, the husband and wife team of Ida Mae
bring to mind everyone from Fleetwood Mac to The Record Company. In this intimate chat, the two talk to Alex
about their record collections, family support and how to do a Meet and Greet in a COVID world….
