INGVAY means what he sings. After a first big demotivation in times of Corona, he has now thrown himself again on the music and put his experiences to music. A magical world full of immensity and freedom opens up to INGVAY when he first listens to JJ Cale at home with his father. He couldn’t quite put his finger on it yet but one thing is certain: it is a world he wants to be a part of. He immediately convinces his uncle, a blues guitarist, to show him his first riffs. From that moment on the foundation of INGVAY ́s style was laid, the sound that has become a core part of this musician ́s heart. As a teenager he is drawn to travel: he starts to play music at bonfires in Spain, at Italian beaches, while camping in France. Later on, he tours Europe for years as a sound engineer – always searching for the way of life that only this music can offer him. He then starts to write his own songs. About life on the road – a journey into life ́s vastness as well as his inner self. He gathers his long-standing musical companions around him and continues to develop his style by returning to his roots.
With his new album “Keep It Up”, INGVAY begins his journey once more, setting sail to a new age. Three successful albums, rewarded with good press and nationwide airplay of the current long-player “Keep it up” in almost all genre-relevant formats – with rotations on Deutschlandfunk Kultur, NDR Info, RBB and SWR1. With his new titles, he gives courage to all those whose lives may not have turned out quite as they dreamed, because: “There is always a chance to set out for a new time. Even after difficult years, we can manage to start again – Let’s stick together and look forward!” “Coherent groove, pleasant voice, exquisite guitar playing,” wrote Blues News magazine in the review of the last album…and here we go with the next single, “Oh Maria” – Stay tuned!
