The multi-award winning, critically acclaimed and best-selling The Idea of North present their brand new studio album: Ballads.
Over the past two decades, The Idea of North have become renowned for phenomenal performances – using just the voices of their four members, soprano Sally Cameron, alto Naomi Crellin, tenor Nick Begbie and bass Andrew Piper. They’ve won the ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album, sold out venues throughout the world, and been heard by even more music-lovers globally through their acclaimed recordings.
This new album showcases what The Idea of North does best: beautiful songs in stunning arrangements. The Ballads concept began seven years ago with a concert of ‘Ballads by Candelight’ in the group’s home town of Adelaide. It was so successful that they’ve been touring that concert all over the country ever since.
From ABBA to Sting, and from Cold Chisel to originals by members of The Idea of North, this is an essential new album from a group who are now well-established as one of the jewels in Australia’s musical crown.
