One undeniable fact of the music industry is that in the last half-decade, the re-birth of the female singer/songwriter has overtaken and re-ignited the music world. From Adele to Taylor Swift, Grace Potter and Katy Perry; the passion and insight evidenced early on by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Chrissie Hynde and Sarah McLachlan has been re-born in fine form.
On November 6, a certified newcomer joins these ranks: Ingersol and her-self titled, debut album (via JIC Music).
The album contains twelve tracks, each possessing a captivating intelligence and ready-made viability.
Ingersol worked extensively with Grammy®-nominated producer, Alex Salzman, who helped weave her many musical influences with her intimate, honest and often profound songwriting style.
Says Salzman, “Ingersol’s multi-faceted musicality and ability to freely express herself lyrically has allowed us to successfully craft a deep retrospective on her life’s experiences in this debut album.” Ingersol immediately evidences a complexity that is at once compelling and accessible, on songs such as “This Too Shall Pass” and “Chasing Shadows.”
The album boasts world-class musicianship which listeners will immediately hear and appreciate. Salzman gathered renowned NY based session musicians, all of whom have played with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Mariah Carey, Ashford & Simpson, CHIC, Southside Johnny, Diane Schuur, to name but a few. The result is a perfect balance of life’s moments set to a well-honed score.
Ingersol’s twelve track debut album takes listeners on a layered journey that will undoubtedly speak to them on many levels; including her first single from the album ”Comfort Comfort.” Ingersol’s first video, directed by Erik Palladino, for the song is available now.
