Homecoming Album Release Show 7-9pm Lindbergs is proud to welcome Boston soul singer Ingrid Gerdes! Ingrid's gospel-meets-R&B voice has earned her more than one comparison to greats like Irma Thomas and Mavis Staples, and the title of her new album, High Priestess, helps conjure images of a vocalist trained in a Mississippi Delta choir loft, spending Sundays praising the Lord and raising the roof. Actually, Gerdes spent more time serenading house pets than heaven while growing up in the Ozarks town of Springfield, MO. an area known for it's natural beauty. In fact, she used the four elements essential to all life earth, air, fire and water as inspiration for High Priestess, even filling a displayboard with vivid photographs suggesting moods she sought to convey musically. The result is both cool and hot, breezy and still, and imbued with a southern blues-rock sensibility that adds a shot of sass to her hot- buttered-soul, Dusty-in-Memphis delivery.

“With just a single listen you'll know that Ingrid Gerdes is spell caster. The new album “High Priestess”, from the start, is ear ecstasy. Ingrid's soul rich vocals are confident, sassy and strikes with definite deep emotion. It's Goose Bump Raising, Head Bobbing Blues at it's purist. “High Priestess” is a slow roll from down in the Delta, up to the North Hills of Mississippi to the Smokey Blues Halls on Beale Street ...
