Ingrid Andress looks set to make a major breakthrough with debut album ‘Lady Like’, which is out now. She’s set to celebrate the album’s release by performing live via Instagram today at 7pm UK time as part of Global Citizen’s ‘Together At Home’ series to raise funds for the World Health Organization.
And tomorrow she’ll also join members of the gaming, music and entertainment communities for Twitch Stream Aid, a 16-hour live global broadcast in partnership with Amazon Music to raise funds for the World Health Organization’s newly established COVID-19 Solidarity Fund.
In addition, Ingrid recently visited YouTube’s creative space in New York, where she performed and shared details about the ‘Lady Like’ album during a live Q&A, which can be seen here.
One of the songs fans can look forward to during the live performances is her debut single ‘More Hearts Than Mine’, which is heading towards the Top 5 at US country radio and has already been certified Gold.
Having already exceeded 175 million+ streams to date, Ingrid was recently nominated for New Female Artist of the Year at the prestigious ACM Awards, while her recent single ‘Life of the Party’ was playlisted at Radio 2 and played by Zane Lowe at Beats 1.
The ‘Lady Like’ album underlines Ingrid’s world class talents as she co-wrote and co-produced every track. In addition to ‘Life of the Party’, the album’s other highlights include the title track, a recent Record of the Week and A-listed at Radio 2, and ‘More Hearts Than Mine’, which became the only debut from a solo female artist to hit the Top 20 of the Country Airplay Top 20 in 2019.
These recent tracks have proven Ingrid as an artist to be reckoned with in her own right, after previously earned a reputation as an in-demand co-writer for artists such as Charli XCX (‘Boys’), Bebe Rexha, FLETCHER, Dove Cameron and Alicia Keys.Ingrid played her debut UK shows at last year’s Country 2 Country before completing a sold-out headline UK tour which included a sold-out London show at The Courtyard Theatre. Plea
Now based in Nashville, Ingrid Andress grew up in Denver, Colorado. As a child she excelled at sports, but she also poured her heart into music that cut to an emotional core far exceeding her age. It all made for an artist who would later not only eschew expectations and tear down genre walls, but who could exceed them too.
Ingrid Andress is the kind of artist who fits perfectly in the moment but has the staying power and timelessness to last too. She has the ability to cut a deeply personal lyric: singing about her imperfections, or her taste for tequila, or how she’s loved and lost. It all comes down to finding that connection, regardless of what it looks like. “It’s important to speak your truth, and music has always been a way where I feel like I connect with people,” she says. “Now more than ever, we need people to start saying something real.”
