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 the dreamy, pensive-but-poppy songs that would connect with millions. Her music taps into universal themes like self-doubt, betrayal, and of course love, but her spirit is fiercely indie; all of Ingrid's music is released on the label she founded, Cabin 24 Records which has sold over one million albums and 8 million singles to date. Ingrid is currently working on writing & producing her own sitcom, and writing songs for film while promoting her latest release, It Doesn't Have To Make Sense.
INTRODUCING THE USE YOUR HEART TEE!
"I, like many others, have been deeply affected by the divisiveness in this country, which appears to be magnified more so now than ever. I wanted to do something to help bring people together, but I didn't know what. A few friends suggested designing a tee and donating the profits to an organization that protects people who may feel threatened in this present climate. So that's what I did. I feel like we can all agree that this is an important time to use your heart.
