Biography

Back in January 2011 Smooth Jazz Journalist of The Year nominee, Denis Poole, commented that ‘North End Soul’ from multi instrumentalist, writer and producer Vincent Ingala was, by any standards, an outstanding piece of work. In fact, it proved to be spectacular debut and set the scene for what evolved into a truly remarkable year. In San Diego, at what became known as ‘The Lemonade Weekend’, Ingala owned the stage at Anthology and later jammed with Peter White at the Hard Rock Hotel. Twelve months later, his ever growing fan-base is about to be rewarded with Vincent’s next project, ‘Can’t Stop Now’, which is scheduled for release summer 2012. With seven original compositions, two spellbinding covers and guest performances from Jonathan Fritzen and Gregg Karukas, ‘Can’t Stop Now’ is a measure of just how far Ingala has come and a tribute to the focus and dedication he has for his music.

Indeed, ‘Can’t Stop Now’ bears testimony to the way Vincent pursues his musical goals with determination and zeal. Not only did he write and co-write seven of the tracks, he also played every instrument and, if that wasn’t enough, produced and programmed the album throughout.

This all seems a far cry from the time when, aged four, his parents bought him a drum set. Later he was given his first guitar and after only nine months of lessons in third grade, was strumming Elvis tunes that he had perfected by ear. Both friends and family quickly sensed that there was something special going on and this was confirmed when in fifth grade he mastered the keyboard before trading it in for the saxophone.
