Ingrid Woode & The Woode Tribe Orchestra

October 11, 2018 at 6pm

Soulstress Ingrid Woode delivers powerful anthems of resilience, accentuated by the impeccable musical arrangements and lush soundscapes of the 11-piece Woode Tribe Orchestra. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Woode is a classically trained violinist, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who draws upon her diverse musical background to inform her smooth and funky soul jams with a dreamy orchestral flourish. A graduate of Tuskegee University in Alabama with a B.S. in Animal and Poultry Science and a minor in chemistry, Woode began working as a chemist straight out of college, investing here earnings in recording equipment. The musical chemist worked in a lab by day and honed her music production, composition and performance chops night. While committed to both worlds over the next several years, she was able to develop an impressive catalogue of original soulful tunes. In 2009, her song “Fair Weather Friend” won the People’s Choice Award for songwriting and earned her the opportunity to meet Dana “Queen Latifah” Owens, who also included Woode’s piece as a bonus track on her album Persona (2009). Since then, Woode has amassed a loyal fan base and critical acclaim, but what she “loves the most is that she gets to do what she loves with people who are like family.”

In addition to her work with Queen Latifah, Woode has also written for five-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist Lalah Hathaway’s 2011 album, Where It All Begins. In addition, she has toured internationally in Spain, Portugal and Italy and has performed a classical orchestration of her song “When This Life is Over” with the renowned Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and a 150-member chorus for a sold-out crowd at Cincinnati’s Music Hall. Her latest album, Going Live in Five (2014), produced by Robert “Big Brizz” Brisbane (Queen Latifah, Lil’ Wayne, Dr. Dre), is a compilation of five live recordings of some of the band’s favorites, which was recorded “the way most bands did back in the day: hit the record button, let everyone play and sing together. Get the best take and have as much fun as possible.”
