Hurricanes, Chicago and Serendipity!

Oopsie, it's been a long time since I updated my blog! I have a ton of exciting updates, which I am happy to share.

I will be performing at the Cutting Edge Music Conference and Festival in New Orleans Sept. 29th. I am thrilled to have been invited to showcase at this amazing conference. 
I will be performing with some amazing local musicians at the famed Irvin Mayfield's IClub. 
Times, Map and More info HERE

Some things are too serendipitous to pass up! I have literally been obsessed with New Orleans for a year. Some of the new album I am creating has what I am calling a "Louisiana Swamp Stomp" vibe so I made it my mission to travel down to NOLA for "research." Yes my research may have involved drinking hurricanes and dancing to Dixieland bands, but that counts... in my opinion. So when I got the invite I had to answer, YES! (I may have shrieked it a little)
Here is hoping the only hurricanes I encounter on my trip are the sweet, cold and blended kind!

Also coming up will be my NEW website! I am going to be unveiling a total overhaul of my website very soon. Lots of new media, and fun perks to be added. Don't worry, the "auto play" will be gone Forever! I hate it too! You will now have the option to play songs at your discretion :)

The Big news is that I am going to start pre-production on the new album this winter. It's official, no more procrastinating. I will be recording a large portion of it in lovely Chicago, Il, which I am thrilled about! Another serendipitous event, as I've been equally obsessed with Chicago for quite some time.  Some of you know my sister and several BFF's live in the windy city, and it's also a hot seat for Blues music. 
Don't worry, I'll be recording the other portion of the album in my wonderful city Boston. Too many amazing musicians to work with here!

I can't wait to dive in and begin another musical AND physical journey! If you like my bluesy material you will love the new songs! 

As always, friend and fan support means everything to me. I am glad to bring y'all along for the ride if you want to come!

I wish everyone a fantastic end of Summer and an exciting and fun Fall!- Ingrid
