Ingram Hill,
Cold in California
(Hollywood, 2007)

Lots of good stuff comes out of Memphis, TN. B.B. King, Elvis and good barbeque are my top three favorites from that sultry city by the mighty Mississippi. Another good thing to add to that list is Ingram Hill.

Cold in California is the band's third CD release. Their first, Until Now was an indie release. That success got them a label contract with Hollywood Records, which followed up with their second acclaimed CD, June's Picture Show.

Their sound is a fusion of what makes Memphis good: rock, country and blues. They're not as rugged or redneck as either Elvis or B.B., a much smoother sound, which will appeal to a wider range of fans. I particularly like their instrumentation, which is solid teamwork.

Favorite songs: "Four Letter Word," "I Hear Goodnight" and "Cold In California."

Ingram Hill is well worth a listen if you like enjoy eclectic music. They're a smoother Southern sound than is touted from Memphis.
