Jeg har altid har haft smag for mange forskellige musikgenrer og fra barnsben af har jeg både lyttet til danske popikoner såsom Sanne Salomonsen, Anne Linnet og Kim Larsen samt reggaestjerner såsom Inner Circle, Bob Marley og UB40. Derudover har jeg også lyttet en del til Rap, R&B og det der ellers rører min sjæl. Alle disse har sat sit præg på udviklingen af mit album, og for at kunne udfolde mig bedst muligt har jeg derfor valgt at forene to genrer på mit album. Ida Ambrose music Facebook
