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 Michaelson has partnered with Vh1 Save The Music Foundation for the We Are All Blood Brothers Contest. Students can submit a video of their school's music group performing their version of Ingrid's song "Blood Brothers". Fans will vote on their favorite submission, and the winners will receive an Ingrid Michaelson Performance at their school and a Yamaha digital piano. Click here to learn more about the contest.
Target recently launched their national back to school ad campaign with a spot featuring Ingrid's "Soldier". This spot debuted last Friday to over 40 million viewers during the Olympics' opening ceremonies on NBC, the most watched in the history of the games airing in the US!
The spot features clips of that joyous moment when high school seniors receive their college acceptance letters, and Ingrid's song really adds to that special moment.

The pop singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson’s latest release, “Human Again,” made its debut at No. 5 on the Billboard charts. As a fortuitous bit of executive-level preparation for her coming 28-date tour, she performed this month at the fund-raiser for President Obama hosted by Deepak Chopra and Russell Simmons at ABC Kitchen in Manhattan. Ms. Michaelson, 32, a native of Staten Island, lives in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, with her husband and fellow musician, Greg Laswell, 37, and their Border terrier, Shep Proudfoot (named for the addled character in “Fargo”).
