Idea the Artist
- Ines “Idea The Artist” Beltranena Guitar, Piano, Vocals
- Shane McKillop Bass, Guitar
- Justin Flint Drums
Sound description: Take Joni Mitchell, Elton John, and Soundgarden and put them in a room together and you’ll get something near what you might expect from Idea. However, her style ranges from indie folk to progressive rock, some songs being only one or the other, and some a combination of both.
