The Novel Ideas is a country/folk quintet of friends from the great state of Massachusetts. Featuring the voices of three different songwriters, the Novel Ideas create a blend of pastoral, harmony driven, and plaintive Americana. In 2014 they released a 10" single "Lost on the Road" that featured two new songs and marked the band's first effort as a five piece. Since then, they have been touring nationally, writing, and recording as a band. Their latest release St. Paul Sessions was recorded live in an old church in their hometown. It features six unreleased songs and aims to capture the raw energy of their live performance.
