New York singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson saw her profile rise pretty dramatically in 2007 when Old Navy built their fall sweater campaign around her quietly infectious song “The Way I Am.” The song quickly made its way to radio, the upper reaches of the charts and the kind of ubiquitous status that can seriously inhibit a budding artist.
Michaelson’s autobiographical new album, Everybody, released in late August, shot into the Top 20 on the strength of the album’s first single, “Maybe,” and great reviews that note her sharply executed Pop songs and more grandly expansive arrangements.
Michaelson might have come to the attention of millions through an ultimately disposable television commercial, but she’s shown over the past two years that she’s an artist with integrity and creative durability.
She plays the 20th Century Theater with Matthew Perryman Jones. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
