ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Boston-based singer-songwriter, Ingrid Gerdes, releases her second original album entitled ‘Shed.’ Gerdes, who was born and raised in southwest Missouri, offers southern soul and effortless approachability throughout her 12-song album. With a strong female perspective and a powerful, sassy delivery, ‘Shed’ is a breakout favorite amongst her many fans.

“This album is really about letting go of everything, getting it all off of my chest,” says Ingrid.

“In creating this album, I wanted to pay homage to soul in its root form as well as experiment with the more modern sounds of soul. I call it ‘Soul two ways!’”

“Songs like ‘Better Off,’ ‘His Game,’ and ‘Other Woman’ all have the throwback soul goodness I love, while songs like ‘Move,’ ‘Your Boyfriend,’ ‘Trying To Remember,’ and ‘Can’t Take Anymore’ play a little more with modern sounds.

“I also love to dance, so I had to include some grooves in this record that I could really work performing live,” Ingrid says. In the album’s first single, “Move” Ingrid’s love of dance is easily apparent. “I have an alter ego named Buffy and this song is dedicated to her,’ Ingrid laughed. “Buffy is a take-no-prisoners kind of girl and this song epitomizes that.”

“‘Shed,’ the title track, really had all the themes of the album within the lyrics: strength, honesty, self realization, sass, and power. Those are all sentiments I wanted to convey with the album and felt this song captured them perfectly. That is why I chose it for the title of this album.”

While there is a powerful perspective in many of the songs, tracks like ‘Want Me Too’ and ‘Your Presence’ highlight Gerdes’s lighter, more vulnerable side. “I just wanted to be true to who I am and sing the kind of music I love on this album; there is something for everyone and every mood on ‘Shed,’” says Ingrid.

Gerdes's original debut album titled, 'The Eclectic Collection,' received favorable reviews all over the world. A Chicago Sun-Times review calls her "The Next Big Thing." A prominent DJ hails Gerdes as "one of the most interesting and versatile singers on the circuit today, both technically fantastic and true to herself."

He also describes her music as, "The smoothness of classic, Motown-era pop; the grit and sex of Southern-soul; the sunshine and swaying feel of reggae; the romantic mood of Eva Cassidy-like sensual ballads - all on a single CD. With original pieces, both personally written and produced, this album epitomizes her appreciation and passion for honest music.”

I can relate!
What I love most about this CD is that I can TOTALLY RELATE to all the songs - it's like she's got the anthem for all the ladies out there who've dealt with the lovely unraveling of relationships - and haven't we all. I run to her songs - "Move" is my fav to run to and dance to. What's also cool is that each song is like a story too. Love the CD - kinda wish I had instant gratification and had the CD now, but I'll have to wait a few days for delivery....oh well, I guess there's always the MP3s.

Another great album!
Ingrid is an incredible songwriter and a gifted singer. By weaving together pop, soul and blues elements, she was able to create a sound that gives a nod to the past while being modern and relevant today. This is a great album from start to finish and I can't wait to hear more from her!

Erin

AMAZING!
It is worth buying the entire album! I was drawn to this album from Ingrid's hit "Move". But after listening to the entire album I am blown away! The album is so verstile and so worth it! The message behind the songs is so real and personal. The music itself makes me want to dance in my livingroom by myself. Which I do! :) Be prepared to MOVE from the album Shed! Guess what the fam is getting for xmas! :)

Awesome sophomore album - you won't be able to stop listening!
This album is one of my favorites all year. I thought I loved her first album, but the second just blew me away. While all the songs are great, my favs are 'Move' and 'Your Boyfriend' - they've been on near-constant repeat ever since I got the CD! Buy this album; you won't be sorry.
