Anna Laube & Ida Jo
Anna Laube is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer from Madison, 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.
