Ingrid Woode, a Cincinnati, Ohio native is a musician who won a 2009 People’s Choice Awards Songwriting Competition, worked with Queen Latifah, written for Grammy Award winning vocalist Lalah Hathaway, toured in three countries though out Europe this past 2011/2012 winter, and recently independently released her debut album Too Weak’s Notice through her production company IWOODE Productions. Ingrid scored the classical orchestration of her song When This Life Is Over from her latest album. She performed the piece with the internationally renowned Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and a 150 member chorus for a sold out crowd at Cincinnati’s Music Hall on March 11th, 2011.
After graduating from Tuskegee University, Ingrid used her science degree working as a chemist to invest in recording equipment. Influenced by years of exposure to a diverse collection of artists, Ingrid found her unique soulful sound through songwriting, composing, recording, producing, and performing her increasing catalogue of original music. She is a classically trained violinist and plays all instruments used to record her compositions. Fair Weather Friend, a song she wrote, recorded, performed, and self-produced, afforded Ingrid the opportunity to work with Queen Latifah and have her song placed on Latifah’s latest digital album, the Persona Bonus Track Version on iTunes.
Ingrid’s current album, Too Weak’s Notice is available NOW. When explaining the concept of the album Ingrid says, “Sometimes the hardest decisions are when you know it’s time for a change. Whether it’s the negative people, a suffocating situation, or a past that wants to hold on to you, there comes a time when you have to give more than your job a TOO WEAK’S NOTICE.”
Ingrid is praying and working hard to share her gift with the world as a songwriter, composer, and producer for herself as well as others. She is currently promoting her album Too Weak’s Notice which is available on major internet retail sites digitally and physically, including iTunes. In an interview, Queen Latifah described Ingrid as, “Amazing!” Now it’s time for Ingrid to let everyone know how amazing she really is!
