Ida Nielsen & Band

BioVideosConcertsPhotos

Ida Nielsen is a Danish bass player (and multi-instrumentalist & composer) who is mostly known for the honourable task of holding down the low end for the legendary artist Prince. She joined his band NPG (New Power Generation) in 2010 and started touring the world, staging concert after concert.

In 2013, she formed part of the rockband “3rdeyegirl”, a group which Prince toured with in the year 2014, when he returned to the recording studio Warner Music; and she stayed with him till his tragic & untimely death in April 2016.

When she talks about what it was like playing with Prince, she describes it as “a huge gift and as the most magical musical journey ever, and an on-going learning experience beyond all imagination.”

But Ida is also an artist in her own right and has a very funky thing going on of her own.

After the release of her third solo album turnitup (Autumn 2016), she literally has been touring the world with her sensational band and she is currently working on her fourth solo album, on which she (like on all the others) produces, programmes and (except for the live drums) plays almost everything herself.

Ida’s music can be described as a mixture of old school funk & hiphop with reggae and world music pop ups, ear catching melodies and lots of bass that is forever prominent. Her concerts always promise to deliver a smashing high energy funk show packed with good vibes and tight, very danceable grooves, converting the space around the audience into a veritable discotheque.

Ida has had the great opportunity to create her own signature bass with Sandberg guitars. She was looking for a bass that fitted the music she played with Prince as well as her own music. So basically it is a bass with a nice rock and funk tone, with an ability to sound more old school and some extra options when it comes to create different solo sounds. And thus she built a beautiful bass featuring lots of different sound options; but most importantly, a bass that is super funky sounding.
