Hey, I'm Ingrid.
My favorite things in the whole world are: my record collection (227 & counting!), sunsets, dirty chai lattes, my guitar (named Graham, after Graham Nash),
my sweet dog, Magnolia, and the feeling I get from being on stage.
My songwriting style reflects my adoration of singer/songwriter icons (Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Bob Dylan) as well as my addiction to jamming in my car to
straight-up bops (the Gin Blossoms, Taylor Swift, Electric Light Orchestra).
I write honest, storytelling songs with the hopes that people can relate to them,
and dream of one day professionally performing those songs alongside my dad,
John Gessert, a lifelong percussionist who doubles as my drummer.
I'm currently a freshman Acting-major at the University of Southern California,
& hoping to add minors in Songwriting and Popular Music Studies.
But when it gets down to it, I'm just an 18-year-old girl
from Lincoln, Nebraska who loves music.
