TAMING INGRID is the newest and freshest sounding pop music band to hit the scene! Currently based out of Orange County, California, their unique sound combines good old-fashioned American pop music with a groovy backbone and a modern edge.
A powerful, melodic, sexy lead Vocalist with stage presence that'll leave you in awe… At age two, Monica (from Cupertino, California) started turning off the TV and putting on her own song and dance for whomever was watching – her folks immediately directed her to every dance and vocal lesson they could find time for. She performed her first show at age 4, where she sang and danced to a choreographed routine in front of a group of 10,000. Soon after, poems and lyrics began forming. By age 13 she had written numerous songs. Years later, she decided to put together a band ----- or three. The moons aligned as a friend introduced her to the person who had what it took to pave the way for success.
It was clear from the first day that Rhonda’s hooky and dynamic guitar riffs and solos, complimenting backing vocals, great ear for songwriting, and sultry appearance would break the stereotypes and impress even the shredder dudes. Rhonda (originally from Newport Beach, California) came from a very musical family where guitar, piano and percussion were first nature. Once she had all of that down, she decided guitar was the most intriguing, and that she needed to learn every song on the radio. Frightfully, she was determined to do so. Day after day she would click on the radio and learn everything from Led Zeppelin to Michael Jackson. Such persistence made her a wonderfully rounded musician capable of fing multiple styles into a commercially hooky tune while keeping it real to her classic roots.
Taming Ingrid has it all...and the world is taking notice! Hooky, commercial songs that keep it real to the crucial elements taught by our ‘greats’, a stage show that drives you back for more, universal backing vocals with beautifully sculpted harmonies enveloping the already mesmerizing pop sound.
America is ready for tunes hosted by lyrics that reflect a positive outlook on life and the future! The band promotes equality, acceptance and unified peace …..not religion.
This is a band worth checking out! Not just another pop-sensation...but an experience!
