Ingram Hill is a pop rock trio based in Memphis, TN, excited to release their third album, Look Your Best, on September 28. Look Your Best is their first record on the Rock Ridge Music label, following 2004’s June’s Picture Show, which yielded the hits “Will I Ever Make it Home” and “Almost Perfect”, and 2007’s excellent, but underrated, Cold In California. We had the honor to ask Ingram Hill’s Justin Moore about the band’s new record and recent label change, and discover his secret Milli Vanilli-loving days.
Q: Thank for taking the time for the interview. I understand you and [guitarist] Phil have been friends since kindergarten, so I would guess that by now you almost read each other’s minds – How has your lifelong friendship factored into the songwriting for Ingram Hill?
A: Thanks for interviewing us! I think at this point, we just try to impress each other with our songwriting. Since we’ve known each other for so long, it takes a lot to get a compliment out of one another, so we really just try to get a reaction. Half the time I already know what one of his songs is going to sound like, as he does mine, so if we can get a “wow” out of each other, it’s a good thing.
