Vincent Ingala – Personal Touch

Twenty-something music prodigy Vincent Ingala is no stranger to contemporary jazz audiences. His heartfelt, sweet and soulful mix has catapulted him to the top of the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts, garnering him three Billboard #1s, and eight top 10 hits. The charismatic and handsome instrumental wizard has endeared fans, contemporaries and critics alike with his consummate musicianship, fun-loving stage presence, energized and inspired performances and all-around passion. Ingala, who was handpicked to open for Dave Koz at the tender age of 16, is an old soul with a musical identity and wisdom well beyond his years. He has collaborated with and or opened for such artists as Chris Botti, Jonathan Butler, Peter White and Kim Waters, among others.

“I do not remember making a decision about becoming a musician because music was always inside of me,” confides Ingala “My earliest memories are of banging on pots and pans until my parents had to buy me a drum kit and from there it was like a domino effect.” From banging on pots to churning out hits, Ingala is a chameleon in the recording studio. Like an alchemist, he concocts the perfect elixir of his broad musical influences spanning the worlds of jazz, R&B, disco, pop and beyond. A virtual one-man band playing everything from tenor saxophone, piano and drums to guitar bass and lead vocals, Ingala possesses great ingenuity, extraordinary versatility and an endless supply of inspiration. “I love all types of music and genres and I just absorb as much of it as I can,” explains the young, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer. “I have always been mesmerized with the process of multi-track recording from a very young age. It’s a process that I still love and practice today.”

April 27, 2018, Vincent Ingala will release his fifth solo recording and Shanachie Entertainment debut, Personal Touch. A collection of eight stirring original tracks and two surprising reinventions of R&B chestnuts, Vincent Ingala proves why he is one of the most exciting artists to emerge in contemporary jazz this past decade.

Vincent Ingala – Can’t Stop Now

Scott O’Brien of commented about his debut album: “The last time I was this impressed with a new, young sax player was when I told you to keep an eye on Eric Darius. Now here’s a new name I want you to remember… Vincent Ingala. He’s headed for the same stellar reaches of this genre.

He’s only seventeen, hails from Waterbury, CT’s North End, and is absolutely, unequivocally the real deal. Vinnie plays sax as if he’s been doing this for a lifetime, has produced, recorded, and mixed his debut CD North End Soul, plus played all the other instruments you’ll hear on this project, most notably electric guitar. Bottom line here is that this kid blows me away! North End Soul  can stand with the best of the best out there right now, but don’t take my word for it. Take a listen to this album and you’ll have to agree that a superstar destiny awaits young Vincent Ingala!”

Can’t Stop Now is Vincent’s sophomore album. Soulful and catchy saxophone melodies laced with emotional piano and guitar throughout. Also featuring guest artists, Gregg Karukas and Jonathan Fritzen. Can’t Stop Now will keep you grooving throughout the entire album! Get the album at CDBaby.
