Live From the Artists Den

Ingrid Michaelson

Season 1, Episode 4 of 13

Befitting a musician of the digital age, Staten Island native Ingrid Michaelson first gained wide exposure through TV: several of her songs were featured in Grey's Anatomy and One Tree Hill, including "Breakable," "Keep Breathing," and "The Way I Am," which also served as the soundtrack to an Old Navy commercial. Amazingly, she did it all independently, fueled by entrepreneurial skills and the sheer talent to back it up. Be OK - the follow-up to Michaelson's breakthrough debut album, Girls and Boys - was released in 2008 on her own Cabin 24 label. Off "Old King's Highway" on Cape Cod, looking like a cross between a cow barn and a Congregational Church, sits the Cape Cinema. On a hot July night, underneath Kent Rockwell's art deco swirl of heavenly bodies (once the largest mural in the world) and in front of the movie screen that premiered The Wizard of Oz in 1939, the Artists Den cast the cinema in a new light with a performance by indie-pop darling Ingrid Michaelson.
