One of my favorite things in the world is music. I love everything about what I call, "The Music Process" (Don't be jealous of my super creative title. It's a gift really.) I love finding artists, interpreting lyrics, and internalizing the fabulousness of songs. Who doesn't?
A few summers ago, my friend I went to see Ingrid Michaelson. At the time she was playing in a coffee shop type venue. I found her completely randomly on myspace, when she was trying to find a record deal. Her concert honestly changed my world. She has the most beautiful, soulful voice that sounds just as amazing in concert as it does on her CD. Her style is folky pop, and her lyrics are heartfelt, quirky and FUNNY! I was able to go up to her after the concert, and tell her how awesome she was. She was so gracious, during the concert she even said, "I can't believe you all came to see ME!!" If you don't know about Ingrid, you are surely missing out. Her song, "the way I am" made that Old Navy commercial about sweaters seem cool. When I saw the commercial last Christmas, I FREAKED out because I didn't know anyone knew about her. She is fairly well known now because of that commercial, which makes me so happy for her :) Just in case you aren't familiar, her new record, BE OK, just came out!! GO to iTunes and listen to it! She is coming here to D.C. at the end of November. I AM SO SO SO EXCITED!!!!
Here is a really cool video someone put together to her song "breakable", off her album Girls And Boys Watch and listen to her BEAUTIFUL voice!
