About i do declare®

Northwest Arkansas' Acclaimed Best New Artist, i do declare® has a diverse sound that you will want to put on repeat. An alternative rock band with a fresh and new sound, IDD™ is building a strong presence in the region with their blues and roots rock that pays tribute to such influences as CCR to Led Zeppelin to the likes of Soundgarden and The Black Keys.

Following the band's independent release, "A Rebel's Chance" in 2011, i do declare® has become a local favorite. The first single, “Stabbed” has garnered the band much success in which the EP in its entirety discusses relationships and fosters the importance of trust, loyalty, and growth that each of us can relate to. The band is currently working on a new album that is set to be released in the fall of 2014 with a promotional tour to follow. Come to a show and enjoy the tunes. You will not be disappointed!ß

"i do declare is the all-time most requested band for Native Kruz."


A Rebel's Chance feedback per iTunes:
"This album is incredible. It truly showcases Ryan's talent as an artist, and his passion for music. He is definitely an entertainer and is here to stay!! Absolutely cannot wait to hear more!!!!!!!"

"The vocals are unique not like anybody else's out there. Also all the instrumental was done by Patrick Ryan which is amazing. It's real music not done by a computer beside putting it all together for the end product! Definitely a must have!!"

"Great album, has a newer unique sound that separates you from the crap on the radio! I can feel the effort and emotions put into the making of this just from listening…"
