Because We Have To

Lida Una was started over 15 years ago when lifelong friends Carter Nieters and Ron Askew started writing and recording music.  The band has seen several changes with bassist Steve Ambrosius and lead guitarist Brian Ebert filling out its ranks.

Lida Una has played the premiere venues of St. Louis and shared the stage with The Whigs, Hugh Cornwell, and Shinyribs to name a few. The Lida Una motto is "we're going to have a blast on stage, come join us and have one as well". They have released six full albums and show no sign slowing down.
