The New York native's collaboration-filled set of tracks exhibits an "intellectual poppiness" personal to Ingrid and has already rivaled the success of her last release, "Human Again."

Presently, there is arguably no singer-songwriter that writes songs with as much visual perspective as Ingrid Michaelson. A success story born out of a new generation of fans on MySpace and strategic television placement, Ingrid's cinematic love tales have crossed the ears of millions, whether knowingly or unknowingly. And her second proper full-length album, titled Everybody, has the potential to set the proverbial scene yet again.
