Ingrid Michaelson appeared on Seven’s ‘Sunrise’ in Sydney, Australia earlier this month, performing her hit ‘The Way I Am’. Afterward, the singer songwriter talked about her association with ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, getting discovered on MySpace, and how getting her song played on ‘Grey’s’ led to audiences of 20 friends in New York became 150 people she had never seen before.
The performance and interview video at Yahoo! has since been removed.
Behind the scenes footage of Ingrid Michaelson at a photo shoot for ‘Parachute’. “We are here today doing a photo shoot because I have a new song coming out called ‘Parachute’, and we needed new photos and fun pictures to go along with the release,” Ingrid explained. “The song is about love. It’s about true love. It’s about having somebody who won’t let you hit the ground basically, so no matter how sad you get or how hard things are in your life, you have this person in your life that will always float you to the ground safely.” Watch the clip via YouTube below.

Staten Island singer songwriter Ingrid Michaelson offered a track by track commentary for the twelve songs on her fourth album ‘Everybody’, out now on Cabin 24. Watch the video via YouTube below.
Ingrid Michaelson blasted someone who gave her new album ‘Everybody’ a one-star review online, not for the rating but for calling the CD “Gay!!!”. The singer songwriter told her Twitter followers (@ingridmusic):
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion… Except ignorant a@#holes. :) yay!
Young people these days need to not say “gay” to mean something negative. It pisses me off. If you don’t like my record, say it’s sh**. Say it’s boring, say I sound like a dying seal… Just don’t say it’s “gay.” You just end up sounding like a jack ass.
I will now climb off of my high horse, feed him some oats, and turn in for the night. xo everyone.
Ingrid Michaelson checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@ingridmichaelson) on Wednesday (August 26), talking about the sales success of her fourth album ‘Everybody’, which came out Tuesday. The New York based indie pop singer songwriter tells readers:
Yesterday my self released album (under my own label, Cabin 24), EVERYBODY reached number one on the iTunes charts. I can not believe it.
Thank you to Original Signal and Universal Motown, the labels that distribute and market my album.
Thank you to everyone who bought, tweeted, blogged, plogged and smogged.
Thank you to anyone who posted my neato widget (which you can find on my MySpace).
Thank you to all the radio stations spinning MAYBE and to all the people calling and requesting it.
Thank you to my friends and family and management and web people and art people and everyone who supports me for just being plain rad ladies and gents.
Thank you. I am a lucky human. Beyond lucky.
Ingrid Michaelson is out with the music video to her new single ‘Maybe’, from the New York based singer songwriter’s fourth album ‘Everybody’, available now on Cabin 24 Records. Watch it via YouTube below.
Ingrid Michaelson wasn’t happy with something she read before going to bed tonight, taking to Twitter to let her fans know about it. She could be referring to a story posted Thursday from the New York Times, which compared ‘American Idol’ winner Kris Allen with “the stuff of adult-contemporary radio” which she was mentioned as one of several artists. Michaelson writes:
Listen 2 the whole CD… don’t sum up an artist on 1 song. Snobs… not you. Reviewers. You write one super poppy song and you are screwed.
Lazy people who pass judgment on an artist’s entire body of work without listening to it. Disgusting. Shameful. Do your job.
Enough. I go to bed. All fired up.
I do not aspire to be under the category of “adult contemporary”. Maybe I need more 12 piece horn sections and I should sing slightly off key
Ingrid Michaelson isn’t happy with the music for an ad promoting the Studio One 19, Dell’s all-in-one consumer system that supports multi-touch in a variety of applications. The singer songwriter writes on her Twitter (@ingridmusic):
wow… someone ripped off my song “BE OK”… wow ..
The Dell commercial has since been removed at YouTube.
New York based singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson and guitarist Allie Moss performed her breakout hit ‘The Way I Am’ and ‘Be OK’ unplugged at Hitradio Ö3 in Vienna, Austria on Monday (April 20). Watch it via YouTube below.
