Ida Nielsen is a Danish bass player (and multi-instrumentalist & composer) whose life was turned upside down when music legend Prince discovered her in August 2010. She joined his band the The New Power Generation and started touring immediately. In 2013 the 4-piece powerhouse rockband 3rdeyegirl was thrown into the mix as well. Ida was a member of his bands until his tragic and untimely passing in April 2016. She describes playing with Prince 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. Since the release of her 3rd solo-album “turnitup” (fall 20 16) she has been touring with her band “the Funkbots” extensively. They deliver a high energy funk show packed with good vibes and tight grooves.
Her fourth solo album, “Time to stop worrying (about the weird stuff)”, was released in the fall of 2018. She produced and (except for the live drums), played almost everything herself.
