Artist of the week

Ingrid Michaelson

Age: 27

What’s her deal?: Talented young singer/songwriter.  If you watch television, you may have heard the song “Keep Breathing” in the Grey’s Anatomy Season 3 Finale, or her latest hit “The Way I Am” on Old Navy Commercials.  Apparently, after Grey’s Anatomy ended, there was a big rush to find her song on MySpace and that’s how she got famous.  I was introduced to “Keep Breathing” as a lovely waltz, and later liked  “The Way I Am” as well.  Her songs are melodious and catchy, her voice is pure, and her lyrics are often introspective.  I also like her because she comes across as unpretentious despite being so talented.

Upcoming show: next Wednesday, January 23 @ 7:30PM, at Slim’s in SF

**I have an extra ticket for this (sold out) show because my mother can’t go with me.  Anyone want to go?**

    I LOVE Ingrid Michaelson. You should take Lisa with you if you can. Funny story about Ingrid: I discovered her for myself one day browsing the Myspace music pages (when I was supposed to be doing “research”). I friended her and told her that she was my new fave artist- she actually wrote back on my Myspace profile saying thanks! Later, I told her that she should try to get her music on Grey’s Anatomy because it reminded me of the show and I thought it’d be a good fit. She said she had JUST signed with a licensing company that was gonna pitch her songs to the Grey’s people- and the rest is history! I’m so glad that she’s nice enough to respond to fans and I’m really happy that her career has just bloomed this past year. So awesome!!

    I’d go with you if I could! I haven’t heard her on TV since I’m out of the television loop, but maybe I’ll listen to her on iTunes.
    Did you get someone to go with you?
    I’m waiting restlessly for your next post! ; )
    Love,
