Just a quick update.
I will be going live with my new website very soon.
I still love the current version, just needed some updates to reflect my new music and artistic direction.
The new site will be featuring some new images taken by the oh-so-talented Erika Murray who just happens to be my sister. I'll share one here, since it's already my Facebook Fan page pic :)
I have been slowly working on my third album for months. I am still very much in the pre-production stage but getting very close.
I know who I am working with and what it's all gonna sound like, so I am excited for things to unravel.
* Thank goodness for warmer weather... there may be more distractions, but the inspiration is vast!

Happy New Year everyone!
Those of you who follow the posts on my facebook Fan Page have surely noticed my recent performances with a group called The Video Game Orchestra.
I have received a lot of interest and many questions about this, so I wanted to share here on my blog!
The VGO describes themselves as, "a Boston-based group that performs its own "rockestral" arrangements of music from popular video games with a rock band, orchestra, and choir!"
This group is made up of genuinely talented, gracious and kind musicians who I am grateful to have the honor to work with!
I was called to perform as a featured soloist with the "VGO" at their amazing Boston Symphony Hall performance, which culminated the end of their successful Kickstarter campaign. (See clips below)
I have since performed with the group at AnimeUSA and MAGfest. Every performance is a complete blast. The energy in the crowd is always amazing and I have had such a great time singing songs that mean so much to many people.
I know when I hear anything from Mario Bros. I turn into a 10 year old again, all giddy and excited, so I can relate!
I will be performing with them again this February and am looking foreword to it.
I am attaching a few photos and video clips from these performances. Enjoy!

I am a person who is obsessed with all things 1920's-1950's and the music of the Big Band Era.
So, for this year's holiday Video Blog I covered Kay Starr's
"(Everybody's Waitin' For The) Man With The Bag."
I love this song, it always makes me smile and want to do a little swing :)
Ask yourself what do vintage holiday pictures and silliness with Santa have in common? The answer my friends, is this video!
What can I say, Christmas brings out the kid in me!
❄ I am wishing everyone a wonderful Holiday and a bright and promising New Year!

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
