Hi, our names are Melissa and Jack and we are Idle Iris!

We're currently a 2-piece that is looking for new members to join and we're keen to start gigging!

We have a few songs already that we are open to developing with other like-minded artists who can bring something fresh to the table.

We want musicians that are self-sufficient, reliable and passionate!

We have some interest from promoters and producers, but we need to do a little more ground work first.

We can send a demo on request. :)
