With a warm, relatable sound that has captured the hearts of countless fans, Michaelson's compelling story as a highly successful unsigned artist first achieved national attention with multiple song placements on the hit television series Grey's Anatomy. The show's producers became so enamored of her music that they chose Michaelson's "Keep Breathing" to air during the final six minutes of the 2007 season finale, resulting in massive and immediate mainstream exposure. Her ubiquitous hit single "The Way I Am," off her breakthrough album Girls and Boys, was not only spun on radio stations all over the country, but was featured in a major national television commercial for Old Navy. Ingrid has since appeared on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and was the first unsigned musician ever selected as a Vh1 "You Oughta Know" artist. The New York Times has described Michaelson's unique musical approach as "soulful, idiosyncratic" and Entertainment Weekly described her as "a deft mistress of quirk folk... a grassroots phenomenon." Ingrid has released all of her music via her own Cabin 24 label which has sold nearly 400,000 albums and over 1.5 million singles to date.
With the release of her new album Everybody, Ingrid brings a newfound wisdom and maturity to her music, gleaned from touring the world with musicians like Dave Matthews and Jason Mraz. On Everybody, she showcases a matured point of view as she explores a new self-realized, independent relationship with the idea of love. "'Everybody' - which is about a big idea," explained Paste Magazine, "chronicles a relationship so intense and volatile that both lovers lose themselves within it. ‘Everybody' is truly everybody's."
