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. Ingrid took an old-school approach to her new release, “High Priestess,” choosing 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. The album also features an impressive roster of musicians including Garrett, “G Love” Dutton on harmonica, Brad Hallen and Mark Teixiera of the Duke Robillard band, Aaron Lipp of Robert Randolph and Milt Reder of Barrence Whitfield /Dwight and Nicole.
