Ingram Hill To Release “Look Your Best” In September
Memphis-based rock trio Ingram Hill will be releasing their new album, “Look Your Best,” on September 28, 2010, via Rock Ridge Music. “Look Your Best” features 10 brand new tracks (12 tracks on iTunes) and was produced by Rick Beato (Billionaire, Michelle Malone, Flickerstick, Shinedown) at his Stone Mountain, Georgia, studio. The band had worked with Beato on their first full-length, 2004’s “June’s Picture Show.” Prior to entering the studio, lead vocalist/guitarist Justin Moore and guitarist Phil Bogard, gave themselves a month to write at least 20 new songs to go along with material they already been performing live. The result is an album that includes both new winners and some existing fan favorites.
The album’s first single, “As Long As I’m With You,” “is for that person or the people who really kind of holds it together for you,” says Moore, who penned the tune. “When seemingly everything around you is falling apart, it’s nice to know that it’s going to be okay because someone’s got your back. It doesn’t always have to be the same person, either. Sometimes it can be your best friend or significant other, and sometimes it can be a group of fans in the front row, smiling, dancing, and singing the words to your songs.”
A number of the songs on the album were road-tested before they were recorded, such as “Hey Girl,” which Moore says got great feedback every single time it was played live, especially from the throngs of females sure to be in every audience at Ingram Hill shows. ““Hey Girl” is pretty much an argument against the constant self-consciousness of almost every woman I know,” says Moore. “It’s not always the most popular and supposed-to-be-hot girl that does it for guys, and even the flaws you see in yourself might be just the thing that’s attractive to us.”.
The band was previously signed to Hollywood Records and released two albums on the label: 2004’s “June’s Picture Show,” which boasted two Billboard charting Hot AC radio hits (“Will I Ever Make It Home” and “Almost Perfect”); and 2007’s “Cold In California” (which came after a line-up change). After ending their relationship with Hollywood following that album, they began writing and recording “Look Your Best.” The band has toured extensively with bands such as Hootie and the Blowfish, Maroon 5, Guster, Better Than Ezra, and Hanson. Ingram Hill is: Justin Moore (lead vocals, guitar), Phil Bogard (guitar), Zach Kirk (bass).
