ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As the Hotel Café became a nationally recognized launching pad for songwriters in 2008, Ingrid Michaelson stood out amongst the venue\'s native artists, having already established her credibility through licensing deals and MySpace playbacks. Her second independent release, Girls and Boys, made waves one year prior when it toppled the iTunes charts, eventually selling over 740,000 digital copies of its lead single thanks to promotional help from Old Navy commercials and Grey\'s Anatomy episodes. Arriving in 2008, Be OK furthers her Norah Jones-gone-pop approach with 11 tracks. This isn\'t a proper studio effort -- rather, it\'s a benefit project (with proceeds going to cancer research) that takes its material from live performances, rarities, and several new tracks. Filled with handclaps and breezy guitar chords, \"Be OK\" is the album\'s flagship song as it bookends the set list with two different versions -- one filled with harmonies, keyboards, and percussion, and the other sticking close to the acoustic formula. Michaelson\'s voice is strong enough to carry such tracks alone, but her melodies sound strongest when flanked by buoyant harmonies, whether they\'re provided by the singer\'s own double-tracked voice or contributions from her touring bandmates. \"The Chain,\" a longtime live favorite and perhaps the best song on this disc, even careens into an emotional three-person round, utilizing the harmony approach better than any Michaelson track since \"The Way I Am.\" She leads the pack, advising her estranged lover to \"glide away on soapy heels\" while her melodies are echoed by Bess Rogers and Allie Moss. It\'s a simple song, but its passion and presentation make all the difference -- a telltale sign of a songwriter who knows how to breathe new life into a veteran genre.

Be OK
This is a great album. My favorite songs are "The Chain," "Giving Up," and, of course, both versions of "Be OK." I encourage you to buy this album because some of my proceeds go to the Stand Up to Cancer fund. Awesome.

The Way I Am
Wonderful songs on this CD! If you like this one you also should check out an album called "Breakfast with Friends" here on CD Baby. It has a similiar style of music.

You really are going to BE OK
I am a huge fan of Ingrid's, but the sad thing is that I live waaay too far (other side of the world) to see her live; this is where BE OK does its job! Other than the live tracks; the covers of the songs that we all secretly know the lyrics to are just perfectly sung with heart-felt emotion; and the previously unreleased tracks showcase that Ingrid surely has not lost her magic!
Overall, this EP is a must when you're feeling down, or when you need that extra boost of happiness - it'll definately deliver! It really makes you feel that you're going to BE OK :)

The Anticipation
of waiting for this album nearly killed me! It's been in my CD played ever since I got it, and I can't wait to see her in concert in Portland!

Jeff Osborn

Outstanding
I don't especially favor the title track, but the rest is AWESOME! I actually tear up at the end of The Chain.

Howard Pavane

Great and upbeat
My first exposure to Ingrid's music and what a pleasant surprise. Great tracks, great music, great voice = great album. A nice mix of pop and folk. And of course Ingrid's voice is beautiful and honest. Love this album and I'm sure to buy more of her work. Simple. upbeat and just fun to listen to over and over.

Sam

Keeps getting better
I am a fan of all of Ingrid's music, but the songs on her new CD Be Okay are really my favorite. Every time I hear her songs, I become happy, even if my day has just plain sucked! She's has a unique talent to take simple melodies and turn them into masterpieces. Buy the Be Okay CD, and the other two as well, you will not be sorry! There is nothing that is more worth it! :)
