Ingrid Michaelson is an artist most would consider a self-professed singer-songwriter. She was born into a family of artists; her father was a composer and her mother a sculptor. She came into the music scene at an early age but decided to pursue her music career seriously in 2005. She is most known for her songs being on TV shows, and also for the songs on her 2008 album, Be OK.
Over the years, Ingrid has proven herself to be a formidable singer-songwriter. She has worked with other counterparts in her field like Joshua Radin, Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz among others. Her music dwells mostly on the idea of love and what it feels like. She sings about loneliness and how all everyone wants is love.
At the release of her single Parachute in 2010, she said she was reluctant to share it because it seemed too ‘poppy’. After the song was reworked and given a more funky feel, she decided to release it saying at a Billboard interview; "I just felt like I wanted to put something out. I’m not ready to put a full album out, so we thought we’d put this out and see how people take it or don’t take it." She spoke about wanting something different, trying something new.
