Islanders that make us proud, seriously
Other islanders that make us proud
Islander Ingrid Michaelson was on the cover of the Billboard Magazine
for January 2008. This is big. The opening tags read: The end of the
old Music Business? - Or the Face of the new one?
And here's why we are
particularly excited about this:
Ingrid was one of the first people we met when Christoph moved to
Stapleton in 2000. She served coffee and cake at the (then) Muddy Cup,
where Christoph played classical guitar every Sunday.
We got to know
her, not only as an apt waitress, but also witty and talented person
that clearly had, and obviously has, what it takes to be a top selling
artist: Charm, charisma, looks, great vocals, brains and virtuous
piano skills. And she writes her own songs!
Hey, we're not taking any credit for her success but it seemed obvious, just a
matter of time until she was gonna
be discovered. We were so lucky to have her play on our wedding in our
backyard in June 2004. She literally made some of our guests cry. At
the same time, this particular day was also the birth of Trish and
Christoph as a performing act. Though we didn't play live then, the
recording of our first three songs was designed to be our wedding
favor. The songs meant to be a somewhat smooth, humorous introduction
to our sometimes not so smooth and funny neighborhood. It was the first
chapter, the beginning of our song cycle "Songs from the North Shore."
YOU GO GIRL!
