Funnily enough, just got this through from CD baby this morning. The below is a direct cut and paste from their e-mail so I make no claims about the validity or accuracy of the information. But I do remember her from when she had about 50 friends on myspace ;~)
Building a flourishing music career on her own terms.
Over the last seven years since Ingrid Michaelson has been with CD Baby, she has gone from a relatively unknown singer/songwriter to an internationally-known headlining act. Discovered online in 2006 by her manager who runs a music licensing company, Ingrid began to garner TV placements on some of the biggest shows on television (Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and Scrubs, among many others) and quickly started to build a huge fan following as a result. In 2008, she opened for Jason Mraz on his European tour, and followed it up with a U.S. tour of her own. Along the way, Ingrid has received countless offers from major labels, but each time has decided to remain independent and in control of her own career path, selling over 800,000 albums in the process. She has come a long way since her humble beginnings, but she continues to use CD Baby for her distribution, because we've made it easy for her to create, share and sell her music on her own terms.
