Born in New York City and raised by her mother, a sculptor, and her father, a classical composer, Ingrid Michaelson has artistry in her DNA. At four she began taking piano lessons but it wasn’t until after she graduated college with a degree in musical theatre and was touring the country in a theater troupe that she began to write the dreamy, pensive-but-poppy songs that would connect with millions. Her music taps into universal themes like self-doubt, betrayal, and of course love, but her spirit is fiercely indie; all of Ingrid's music is released on the label she founded, Cabin 24 Records which has sold over one million albums and 8 million singles to date. Ingrid is currently working on writing & producing her own sitcom, and writing songs for film while promoting her latest release, It Doesn't Have To Make Sense.

Ingrid recently performed for a sold out crowd at the Allen Room of the Lincoln Center for the American Songbook series.
