Ingram Street is a soulful duo made up of two brothers from Columbus, Ohio who got their start in the music industry by performing in talent shows for their family. They have since formed various vocal groups and downsized to the duo they are today. Their sound is laid back and heavily influenced by artists such as Maxwell, Debarge, and The Jacksons.
They have released several albums including their latest, “Escapism” which features popular songs like “Natural High” and “Euphoria.” The brothers, Minquel and Woody, divide responsibilities equally and have a strong passion for creating and performing music that connects with their audience.
They have had the opportunity to perform with one of their musical influences, Mr. Phillip Ingram, and are excited to release their new remix album “Streetlights” in April, followed by more shows and an EP release of all new songs by the end of the year.
