Ingrid Andress / Julia Gartha
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
With a head-turning voice, effortless beauty, and a drive for unflinching authenticity, Ingrid Andress is a country singer-songwriter who splits time between Nashville and Los Angeles.
She grew up on a wide range of music, captivated by vocalists such as Whitney Houston, Sarah McLachlan, and Robert Plant. But it was the country sensibilities of Joni Mitchell, Faith Hill, the Dixie Chicks, and even John Denver that stole her heart and fired her imagination. As a result, her country songs are unguarded and raw, focusing on her gutsy, yet vulnerable, voice and the feelings pulled from her wanderer’s soul.
Mentored by Kara DioGuardi—her teacher, superstar songwriter, and former American Idol judge—Andress developed exceptional songwriting skills while at Berklee College of Music. Moving easily between genres, she has scored pop hits such as Vice’s “Steady 1234” and placed the anthemic EDM single “LMK” from her Virgos side project on season six of MTV’s Teen Wolf. In addition, she has cowritten with R&B star Akon and earned single cuts with electropop icon Charli XCX. With the aching romance of her first single, “The Stranger,” Andress has planted a flag for a deeply personal kind of artistry.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Julia Gartha is a country/pop singer-songwriter who effortlessly captivates her audience with honesty and openness. Breathing in inspiration from artists such as Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and James Taylor, Gartha features a storytelling ability that brings an authentic voice to her sound. Gartha is currently working on her debut EP. Her new single, “Can’t Change You,” will be released in April.
