The Idea of North
So who are The Idea of North?
In short, they're a quartet of musicians, serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously.
Their instrumentation: voice (soprano), voice (alto), voice (tenor), voice (bass) and more often than not voice (vocal percussion). This group has a beautifully distinct sound and style, but they cross many musical genres: jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy - exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe, but we're certain you'll love it.
With twelve albums in the catalogue, a significant local and international fan base, and increasingly regular local and international work, it would seem that despite the difficulty, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs (some of them ARIA Award-winning), but the best stuff actually happens live and can't be truly felt as ones and zeros or from a plastic disc, no matter how shiny it is.
