Ingrid’s ubiquitous hit single “The Way I Am,” off her breakthrough album Girls and Boys, was not only spun on radio stations all over the country, but was featured in a major national television commercial for Old Navy. She has since sold 2.5 million single downloads, over 560,000 copies of her three albums and “The Way I Am,” was recently certified Platinum. Ingrid has appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Rachael Ray and was the first unsigned musician ever selected as a Vh1 “You Oughta Know” artist. The New York Times has described Michaelson’s unique musical approach as “soulful, idiosyncratic” and Entertainment Weekly described her as “a deft mistress of quirk folk… a grassroots phenomenon.”

Celebrated UK trio KEANE will embark on a headlining US tour this summer in support of their new album Night Train, out tomorrow on Cherrytree/Interscope Records. The tour kicks off July 20th in Oakland, CA and sees the band traveling across the country, wrapping up August 11th in Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale May 14th. Tour dates below.
Supporting the tour will be Travis frontman Fran Healy and Ingrid Michaelson.
KEANE’s most recent release features eight refreshingly innovative tracks written and recorded while the band was on a 28-country arena tour in support of their album Perfect Symmetry. Night Train includes several songs that challenge the boundaries of genre via unique collaborations with Somali/Canadian rapper K’NAAN and Japanese funk singer Tigarah. The album has already been lauded for its signature brooding rock combined with synth-pop flourishes, leading Rolling Stone to say that with its “brass-bolstered soul” and “electro-flavored dance pop…Keane have proved themselves masters of…pop perkiness.” Alternative Press drew comparisons to David Bowie and Radiohead and People gave it three out of four stars.
Since their inception in 2003, KEANE has sold 10 million copies of their three award-winning albums and seen remarkable success with their singles “Somewhere Only We Know,” “Everybody’s Changing” and “Bedshaped,” among many others. The band’s particular brand of evocative piano rock propelled by literate, heartfelt songcraft has propelled them to worldwide adoration and success.
