It doesn’t happen too often that a young musician refuses to accept an offer from a major label. However this was exactly what Ida Gard decided to do at the very beginning of her career when she had just won a prestigious radio contest and was suddenly getting attention from the big players of the Danish music scene.
To her it felt like a lottery and she would rather put her efforts into building a career step by step, than get on a quick hit-by-hit train that sounded good at the moment but might not last long. Instead she took the long road, founded her own label “Oh My Gard!” and released her music independently.
So far this has led to three critically acclaimed albums; “Knees, Feet & The Parts We Don’t Speak Of” from 2011, “Doors” from 2013 and “Womb” from 2016. Gard calls her genre storyteller-punk, pointing to the detailed, and often hyper-personal lyrics combined with an edgy live-setup consisting of Gard on electric guitars and vocals and Anne Kirstine Winkler on drums. This is girl power when it’s most fragile and most fierce.
