Perfect Music is perfection in an imperfect world. Just ask Jason Trenary of Idle Ride. "For a brief period of time that we get to be on stage, playing for a crowd, everything in the world in general to me is perfect." It's Idle Ride's ability to span the range of human emotion, capturing perfectly the vibrations of the human soul in musical form, that allows the band to make such exciting music whose energy is nothing short of addictive. "I personally can roll through a whole range of emotions when I sing and play on stage." Heard, Unheard Most people pass through their lives unheard, their ideas unexpressed except to their inner circles. But with music, the everyman finds the opportunity to share ideas and entertain people in a binding force of light called music that links artist to fan in an ethereal and undefinable way. "Music gives me a voice in a world that forces me to stay silent. Everything that impacts me finds a way to transform itself into lyrics or sounds so I can create a sort of commentary on life." Idle Ride doesn't stay slavishly with one theme but rather explores the depth of human thought, offering a variety of ways by which people can relate to and become enamored with the artist's works. "There's bad and good; positive and negative in all aspects of life. All I do is tell you what you already know about yourself and the life you are living" Life Experiences Of course, looking to the life that everybody lives allows Idle Ride to explore themes that are relevant to the majority of listeners. This, coupled with just downright excellent songwriting, allows for the opening of doors between artist and listener, the conveyance of rich ideas through engaging music, making for the enlightenment of all. "Our inspiration for writing music comes from life experiences." Accomplishments Idle Ride has proven it's mettle by opening for such artists as The Clarks, Exile and Ricochet and by sharing the stage with the likes of Jet and Halestorm.
