Chris Ingham is an independent American singer/songwriter. Driven by his love of music and deep appreciation for the arts, and their reflection of the artist, Ingham writes songs from the soul. This very sentiment also led him to organize a Songwriter Showcase and Open Mic at Washington DC's famed blues club Madam's Organ, as an outlet for the up-and-coming independent artists in the DC metro area.
While performing weekly at Madam's Organ, Ingham recorded his first full-length album, titled "Samsara", which was released January 2010. The album is a mix of guitar-driven styles: the folk-gospel tune "Livin's Worth More", country ballad "Patience" to the searing blues rock tracks "The Breakdown" and "So Long", there is something for everyone.
He spent 2010 and '11 in Los Angeles CA, studying guitar and enjoying new experiences and playing with many very talented musicians. Returning to DC in early 2012, he quickly formed Simply Subtle, a Rock & Roll band suited for the heavier side of Chris's writing spectrum. Simply Subtle has played a few shows in the DC area and are in the process of finalizing and recording their debut album in early 2013 as well as concurrently recording the follow up to "Samsara", tentatively titled "3000 Miles of Freedom", an acoustic-driven, blues-folk sound accompanied by poetic lyrics of life, love and thoughtful reflection. Have a listen to "Time's Tease" and "Raindrops" for a tease of "3000 Miles of Freedom".
