Ingrid Mae EPK
Ingrid Mae is a singer songwriter from Sydney, known for her bold country sound. Inspired by the singers who pioneered rock yet with the swag and sensibilities of blues and soul, her music is heartfelt and raw.
It was not until the recording her first independently released album Sugarcoated in 2015, that she let her song writing consume her and her real country music journey began. “The first album was a melting pot for me. When it came to people putting a genre on it, it always came back to my country vocal.”
Ingrid released her first country single, Did You Miss Me in 2017, which was played throughout regional country and community radio stations and started Ingrid’s rise in the Australian Country Music Scene. Buoyed by the success of her first single, Ingrid continued to write and perform her music for the remainder of 2017, building a steady following due to her honest and heartfelt performances.
In 2018, her second single, As the Crow Flies was released and with a growing reputation in Australian country music, the song listed top 3 in a national country music chart and received airplay on Australian Country Music and KIX Country radio stations. The song has also been selected as a top 5 finalist for “single of the year”, in the ICMA (Indie Country Music Australia) 2018 awards.
2018 has been a whirlwind year for Ingrid, continuing to perform and build her quirky reputation, in rural areas in Southern and Western NSW. “Ingrid has a strong signature vocal and a cracking band” says manager and drummer, Guy Rock. “We ride on the energy of her dynamic performances and she’s such a crowd favourite, approachable and down to earth. What you see is what you get, from this Kemps Creek girl”.
Ingrid’s 2018 highlights include, performing at several Music Festivals alongside artists, Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand, The Wolfe Brothers and James Blundell, a guest recording performance on James Blundell’s 30th Anniversary tribute album; Pride, professional endorsement as a Takamine Artist in conjunction with Pro Music Australia and a clothing endorsement, with Corral Boots Australia.
With 2018 winding down, Ingrid’s final milestone for the year, will be the completion of her much anticipated country album, which is due for release February 2019.
