The Idea Men


The Idea Men- Comprised of crucial parts of life-blood, bone, metal and wood, The Idea Men from Steeleville, MO, is a band formed by Adam Yount, Matt Schmidt and Chris Case in 2015 to showcase each of their three unique songwriting voices. 

The music of the Idea Men reflects a wide range of influences from traditional American and British folk to that of post punk and indie rock of the 1980s and 1990s ranging from Norman Blake and John Hartford to The Lemonheads and The Grateful Dead.Their sound meanders away on an Ozark creek, running through a culbert beneath the intersection of folk, punk, bluegrass, and rock and roll. Performances rely heavily on original songs and instrumentals while incorporating uniquely interpreted traditional and cover tunes. “Our music will sneak itself inside your heart and mind...lines are caught from the depths of the pond of creativity and cooked up into tasty ideas for your musical consumption!” Here’s great idea: come and enjoy the show!
