PLEDGE NOW
Songstress Ingrid Michaelson

Indie pop star Ingrid Michaelson joins us. She’s the musical sound of Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs, and much more.

Back in the day, musicians were made when a record label found them in a dusty bar. Indie pop star Ingrid Michaelson’s big break was much more contemporary.

She was made when a licensing company found her irresistible music on MySpace, and sold it to Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs and One Tree Hill – and Old Navy. Now she’s big, with simple, sweet songs that play way beyond the soundtracks.

This hour On Point:the indie pop sensation Ingrid Michaelson.

From Tom’s Reading List

The New York Times “As for “Grey’s Anatomy,” the series used not one but three of the songs from Ms. Michaelson’s album. Then the producers took the unusual step of asking her to try writing something specifically for the show. She grabbed the opportunity and created “Keep Breathing,” […] ‘I love songs that have tension, tension, tension, and then release,” Ms. Michaelson said. “We feel it in our bodies. We hold in the tension, and then we release and exhale.’”
