Ingrid Michaelson’s fifth studio album, Human Again, made its debut at the top of the iTunes albums chart and features a more blunt, emphatic side of the folk-pop singer/songwriter, who first gained wide exposure for her gentle, expressive tunes. A true, independent musician of the digital age, Ingrid’s songs are all over the place: Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, Scrubs and Old Navy ad campaigns, which earned her headlines for her hit song “The Way I Am.”
The A-Series line of Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars features a stunning fresh look, amazing playability and the leading edge S.R.T. (Studio Response Technology) piezo/pickup system. The six guitars in the line are designed for players who require a reliable workhorse that looks, feels and sounds amazing in all applications. The A Series consists of performance level, bang-for-the-buck guitars that offer quality build and materials, including Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Neck/Back/Sides, Ebony Bridge and a neck profile that is a thrill to play for hours on end.
Now available for the first time in the United States, the Guitalele is a miniature nylon guitar that looks and sounds like a ukulele, but features six strings and is tuned like a standard guitar up to an A (A/D/G/C/E/A). Chord fingering is the same for any standard-tuned guitar, but now guitarists can easily join the ukulele craze with a portable, playable and thoroughly unique instrument.
