Ingrid Andres is an interesting conundrum. On the one hand she's one of the most acclaimed and respected new artists in country. She's earned Grammy nominations and has had a lot of praise from music publications and fans. On the other hand, country radio hasn't really adopted her yet. Her sound seems to be a little too outside the box for most radio programmers who are too nervous to rock the boat.
I'm a big fan and love what she brings to the genre. She tells stories. And they're real stories. Not the generic stories that most country artists these days think fans want to hear. Ingrid gets into the nitty gritty of what's really going on in people's relationships.
I was pretty stoked to see that she took part in the NPR series 'Tiny Desk Concerts.' Enjoy!
