The R&B-fueled pop style of Top-40 staple Bruno Mars is given a soulful, heartbreaking take by Seattle-based singer/songwriter Agnes Ingarra.
Young Girls," the new promotional single from Mars' latest album, Unorthodox Jukebox
, has its unapologetic confession of a player unable to change flipped upside down, this time capturing the emotional wounds of the woman. This is reflected in Ingarra's melancholic croon, her voice flowing with a hauntingly sad undertow.
Ingarra is an eclectic young artist whose artistic vision recognizes no genre boundaries, freely incorporating her passion for vintage R&B, funk, blues, soul, and alternative rock, weaving them seamlessly with her personal and often intensely emotional songwriting. A popular YouTube personality, she is also a Max Muscle-sponsored athlete who competes at bodybuilding contests and won fifth place at the Washington State Iron Man last year. Her goals are to inspire others with her gift of melody and passion for fitness.
