INGRID MICHAELSON (unsigned, unpublished) -- Here's an artist we've been following for quite some time in the TALENTfilter batcave. Songs from her most recent LP, Girls And Boys, have appeared in THREE episodes of Grey's Anatomy, two epps of One Tree Hill and The Real World: Denver, three epps of The Bad Girls' Club and a Canadian Chevy TV ad. Ingrid has also written a track especially for next week's Grey's Anatomy, which will be used in the closing scene, and will appear on the upcoming Grey's sountrack (in stores in Sept.).

How many of your signed artists have had placement success like that?

Her music is regularly played on major market AAA stations including WFUV New York, WXPN Philly, WUMB Boston, WYEP Pittsburgh, KBCO Denver and on XM's "Hear Music" channel and albums are on sale at iTunes and CD Baby.

All of this begs the question: What would an artist like this POSSIBLY get out of signing with a label or publisher at this point?


New York peeps should check her show out May 25 at the Knitting Factory ...L.A. folks can catch her at the Hotel Cafe on June 7.
