Ingrid Michaelson Bio:
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. Ingrid’s music is released on the label she founded, Cabin 24 Records, which has released her gold and platinum hits including “The Way I Am,” “Girls Chase Boys,” and “You and I.”
While Michaelson has established herself as an artistic force over the course of eight full-length albums, she’s also experienced enviable success writing for other artists and for stage and screen. Last year, she received her first Emmy Award nomination for her original song “Build It Up,” written for the hit series, Little Fires Everywhere. A lifelong Broadway fan, Michaelson made her stage debut in 2017, starring in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 and will soon make her creative debut, writing the music and lyrics for the musical adaptation of the best-selling novel, The Notebook.
Her brilliant latest track ‘To Begin Again’ features ZAYN.
