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 her own songs, which would connect with millions.
Her music taps into universal themes like self-doubt, betrayal, and of course love, but her spirit is fiercely indie. Ingrid’s music is released on the label she founded, Cabin 24 Records, which has sold over one million albums and 10 million singles to date including the Platinum singles “Girls Chase Boys” and “The Way I Am.”
In just the past two years, the artist has made her debut on stage, as Sonya in Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812, and on screen, in the feature film, Humor Me. In early 2019 it was announced that Michaelson will write the music and lyrics for the upcoming Broadway adaptation of the best-selling novel, The Notebook.
Beyond stage and screen, she continues to write and release her own music, most recently with Stranger Songs – which the Sunday Times described as, “music of stark beauty.”
