ingeandersenInge Andersen has always loved poetry and music.

Inspired by Dutch poets such as Hans Andreus and Ellen Warmond, the Canadian poet Irving Layton, and songwriters like Phil Ochs, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor, she has written many poems and songs.

She continued to write while performing regularly as a back-up singer.

After backing Eric Andersen on his 2005 tour of Japan, and in many subsequent performances around the globe, in 2006 she and Eric got married.

Performing back-up gave her a lot of stage experience, but her debut album, Fallen Angel (2011), proved the full extent of her talent.
