Ingrid Michaelson: Unique Indie-Pop and Folk

Dec 12, 2012

Ingrid Michaelson frequently gets compared to the likes of Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor, but she's staked out her own distinct musical territory. The formally trained 27-year-old New Yorker fuses indie-pop and folk in a smooth and unique way that helped her attract a large audience via MySpace.

Though currently unsigned, Michaelson has become a media darling since the release of last year's Girls and Boys and its songs' placement on TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy and One Tree Hill. Her single "The Way I Am" has become a breakout hit, landing Michaelson in prominent TV commercials and making her one of the year's most successful new artists.
