Fire 05:03
Fire My light was out I was turned off Spent sleepless nights Worrying bout paths left uncrossed Then you came along With your bag of tricks You lit me up Baby Yes you know you did I’m electrified In your presence Now my sleepless nights Spent worrying bout your intentions Pre Chorus: You can give me what I want But can you give me what I need And the only way through this is to burn C: And I’m on Fire I’m on Fire V2: Won’t you put me out Turn me to ash You fan my flames with every Naughty Pass I need some water Pour it on me babe You gotta cool me down Before I blaze You can give me what I want But can you give me what I need C: And the only way through this is to Burn And I’m on Fire I’m on Fire Breakdown: Burn baby burn baby burn x’s 4 You can give me what I want I think that you can you give me what I need And the only way through this is to Burn And I’m on Fire I’m on Fire I’m on Fire I’m on Fire Burn baby burn baby burn

about

In a way, Ingrid Gerdes’ new album, High Priestess, is a throwback to days when a recording artists approached a new project as a complete package — a song cycle — built around a particular theme. Every track was written and produced and sequenced in a way that would convey a certain emotion or experience for the listener.

Largely a thing of the past in this age of single-song downloads, many artists and producers now concern themselves with recording only songs they believe will sell apart from a collection. They compile songs not necessarily connected to one another that they hope will be popular enough with their fans to sell them online. There’s often no concept or plan.

Ingrid took an old-school approach to her new release, High Priestess, choosing instead to attempt to create an experience for her fans through a complete collection. Brought together by her unique blues-rock sensibilities, the result feels like summer in the South. It is at times both cool and hot, breezy and still, and imbued with a shot of sass to Gerdes’ hot buttered soul, Dusty-in-Memphis delivery.

about

Ingrid Gerdes Boston, Massachusetts

Boston soul singer Ingrid Gerdes’ gospel-meets-R&B voice has earned
her more than one comparison to greats like Irma Thomas and Mavis
Staples, and the title of her new album, High Priestess, helps conjure images of a vocalist trained in a Mississippi Delta choir loft, spending
Sundays praising the Lord and raising the roof.
