In a recent edition of Boise Weekly, (BW, Citizen, Ingrid Michaelson, June 3, 2015), Ingrid Michaelson said performing in Boise is "a bit like a homecoming" because she finds appreciation and comfort playing for a Boise audience.
The singer-songwriter's debut album was released in 2005, but her songs truly found a voice when they were played during episodes of Grey's Anatomy, including a season finale. Michaelson said she "could see the difference in how many people were coming to my shows and in my record sales. That was a huge transition for me."
That translated to more prominent venues, including a recent return appearance on the Today Show. Though potentially millions of people could have been watching, Michaelson wasn't rattled.
"It's very, very, very early. You're so tired and it's live, so you have this manic energy, and it's such a big show," Michaelson said. "It's pretty exciting, and it goes by so quickly. And when it's over, you go home and eat a bagel."
