Northwest Arkansas' Acclaimed Best New Artist, i do declare™ has a sound that you will want to put on repeat. Distinct vocals, heart-pounding rhythms, and chilling guitar riffs create a melodic wonderland so comforting and so relative, you are only left lingering for more. The band's driving beats are sure to get you dancing, and the lyrics tell a story that you will not soon forget.

IDD’s first album, an independent release titled, ‘A Rebel’s Chance’ was written and produced by Pat Ryan Key. Over the course of five months, Mr. Key spent his time at a home-based studio laying down each track, one instrument at a time. You can hear every bit of the blood, sweat, and tears he put into this project when you listen to this album.

The first single, “Stabbed” has garnered the band much success in which the EP in its entirety discusses relationships and fosters the importance of trust, loyalty, and growth that each of us can relate to. The album was released in Jan. of 2011 and IDD™ has since performed at many of the local hotspots in NWA as well as performing in Missouri and Kansas.

Describing IDD's sound is diverse. The band strives for a fresh new sound, an interesting mix that draws comparisons to artists and acts across all genres. Ultimately dubbed as Alternative Rock, IDD™ is compared to Chris Cornell, Jack White, and The Black Keys to name a few. It is easy to find a sense of familiarity when listening to IDD™ yet their sound keeps you guessing in hopes of finding a style or band you can categorize them under.

To declare something means to “make known” or “state clearly”. IDD™ is a solid declaration of staying true to yourself and your dreams whether it is writing new music and playing shows, or bettering yourself in any way. The band is currently working on a brand new, full length album with production beginning in July of 2013. Be on the lookout! They plan to play many of the tricks they have hiding up their sleeve.ß
