Idea the Artist is the project of bay area singer-songwriter Inés Beltranena. Fusing folk, rock, jazz, and electronic music, Idea’s mellifluous and dynamic classically trained voice paints over the soundscape of her eclectic musical background.
Shortly after the release of her first record, a severe ribcage disorder threatened the songwriter’s ability to walk. Still, she continued to perform, playing even as she lost control of her hands, and singing beautifully through excruciating pain. Despite a prognosis declaring her condition incurable with no hope of improvement, Idea persevered and found a unique doctor who aided her to walk again without the use of a cane. Recorded during her rehabilitation, “The Seafloor” album is a journey from the depth of crushing darkness outward toward what Idea calls “the house of light.” “It is the story of walking away from despair, and the bittersweet love and power that comes with that,” she says.
