Tammy Ingram creates heartfelt indie-folk music, writing songs in the tradition of Beth Orton,
Suzanne Vega and Emiliana Torrini.
Exciting audiences with her passion and sincerity,
Tammy plays with her guitar, loop pedal and vocals to
produce her own style of bittersweet audio-inspiration.
Australian and Berlin radio stations alike have taken notice
of her alt-folk music, speaking of her "passion" and "a soulful voice"
(JJJ, National Radio Australia).
After fronting a rock band back home, the break-up of the band
triggered a desire for both a musical and geographical change of
scenery. Equipped with the first fruits of her solo career she
took off into the world and via some exotic stations found her
way to Berlin where she decided to stay.
While she recalls the first steps of her solo career as
"trying to be a rock band as a solo artist", she has found
her distinctive true artistic voice with her first solo album LOVE WAR.
LOVE WAR, recorded with Producer Tony Dupe in a Berlin studio and a
converted church in Australia, is a sincere and subtle inventory of
the darker days in a relationship.
"There are always struggles in relationships and this record is a
way to exorcise some of the much harder times."
With organic, deep wooden sounds from double bass, cello, harp,
clarinet and trumpet, and the added triumvirate of beautifully
crafted songs, lyrics and voice, Tammy Ingram's new album
promises indie-folk in its pristine form. Different musical
layers have been skilfully woven together in a harmonious way,
creating eclectic songs that unfold themselves time after time
to the listener. Carried by emotions - at times sombre but never
resigning - LOVE WAR concurrently reveals a vulnerability and strength,
that takes the listener by the hand to guide them across the battlefield.
LOVE WAR will be released later in 2012.
"Reminiscent of Laura Marling and Feist, this is a strong debut album full of gutsy melodies showing off a talented Australian songwriter".
