Tip the Artist
Burke Ingraffia is a singer/songwriter whose folk and jazz songs have been compared to Mose Allison, Michael Franks, Bob Dorough, and James Taylor. His clear and pleasant voice adds a touch of honesty to his hopeful and witty lyrics.
Burke Ingraffia has been a finalist at Kerrville New Folk and a semi-finalist at the Telluride Troubadour competition.
His sixth album of songs, Waves, will be released in 2020. It is produced by multi Grammy award-winning producers Scott Billington and Steve Reynolds and features some of New Orleans’ finest musicians, including Johnny Vidacovich, James Singleton, Helen Gillet, John Gros, Dave Easley, Tim Laughlin, Michael Skinkus, Scott Billington, Johnette Downing, Jeff Albert, Marcello Benetti, and Jake Eckert.
“So much music these days tries to be either cool or ironic or transgressive or morose that we think a lot of us listen to music expecting some sort of formidable-ness. Ingraffia’s music, by contrast, disarms our expectations, gives us something kinder, more sincere and playful”

“The American South overflows with the riches of regional music, the product of centuries of cross-cultural pollination. It is the rare musician who can transform these musical resources into art that speaks to the world at large. New Orleans native Burke Ingraffia is one of them, with a lyrical gift that can call to mind Mose Allison, Hoagy Carmichael or Allen Toussaint, with an added touch of sly humor. His songs are a delight for the ear, the mind and the soul.”
– Producer Scott Billington
"Burke speaks to the heart in regards to relationships while wryly, dryly and humorously commenting on the topics surrounding us all as only a master songwriter can. "
