I was contacted recently by local artist Ingrid Gerdes about her new cd that debuted earlier this month - The Eclectic Collection. Her email couldn't have come at a better time.

I recently cleaned off all the music on my laptop to make more room for ......... more work files .... *gasp*. Yeah, I know - boring. Anyway, I just used to stream music while at the office. I was in for a rude awakening this morning when I discovered that Pandora is only available in the U.S. As a result, I've been listening to Ingrid's songs nonstop all morning off of her Myspace page (here) and let me tell you, it's awesome. Amy Winehouse eat your heart out.

Here's a little more information about Ingrid's new cd:

Ingrid releases her original debut album, The Eclectic Collection, in January 2008. The album mixes blues, soul, Motown, R&B, reggae, classical and pop—into one unique compilation. With original pieces, both personally written and produced, this album epitomizes her appreciation and passion for honest music.

Ingrid has also been kind enough to offer up 3 autographed copies of her new CD as a prize to three lucky readers. Here's how to win:

1. Goto Ingrid's Myspace Page (here) and listen to her songs.
2. Leave a comment here with the name of your favorite.
3. Email me with your name and address to enter the drawing for one of the autographed CD's.

Winners will be chosen on Friday 1/18 at Midnight EST.

If you can't wait until then, you can purchase tracks or the entire CD off of Ingrid's Myspace page. I've always been a fan of local artists. When I was growing up in Dallas, I was (and still am) a huge fan of Bowling For Soup. Good Luck Ingrid - I've heard your music - and I think you're going to do great!

I'm going to kick things off with my personal pick: My favorite track is "It's Too Late."

    I know I'm about a year late for the deadline, but I just discovered Ingrid and absolutely love her music. I love Love me right and addicted to the pain, also love I should've known...I like them all it's hard to pick. I am planning to go to her CD release party at Lucky's Lounge on May 17th. I know she will make it big, no doubt.
