INGRID MICHAELSON || ACL LIVE

June 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

In the past two years, INGRID MICHAELSON — who’ll drop her fifth studio album, Lights Out (Cabin 24/Mom+Pop) on April 15 — has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star. Her last release, Human Again, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No.1 on iTunes).

This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had already earned with her previous compositions: beautiful, idiosyncratic songs that have been prominently featured in popular films, television and on regular rotation in commercials. Her DIY approach to making music — composing her own songs, co-releasing albums on her Cabin 24 imprint, building an organic following through music-licensing, and back in her MySpace days (where she was discovered in 2006), promoting herself — was a slam-dunk. Now, it had evolved into a well-oiled machine, The New York Times even weighed in, declaring her songwriting “smart,” her tunes “irresistible” and her live show “seamless.”

“It’s funny. It doesn’t even feel like I wrote ‘The Way I Am,’” Ingrid says of her platinum break-out single, recorded seven years ago. “It’s a memory.” She’ll continue to perform it live as she tours Lights Out — just stripped-down, recasting the flittering ditty into something weightier. “It feels like a little girl wrote that song. So much has happened to me since then.”
