Ingrid Michaelson @ Union Chapel

Last week, one of my friends treated me to a gig at the amazing Union Chapel in Islington. I didn't know singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson before, but it turns out I've heard some of her work because her songs have been featured in lots of TV series, like Grey's Anatomy and Vampire Diaries. And she actually co-wrote Parachute, with Marshall Altman, which was a big hit in the UK a couple of years ago.

Parachute is a very catchy song anyway but I thought that her acoustic version sounded even better.

Apart from being an accomplished song writer and multi-instrumentalist, she has an amazing voice and is a great live performer. The set of songs she played were beautifully arranged and had wonderful harmonies (provided by equally talented Allie Moss and Bess Rogers).

What really added to the performance was undoubtedly the venue itself. The acoustics inside the chapel were just incredible, even the quietest notes carried through the whole place and I could feel the vibrations from the bass through the wooden pews. It was awesome. How better evidenced than by this off-mic performance?

Lovely quality videos via seputus, with more available to watch. ~*~
