Michaelson was born to artistic parents. Her father is composer Carl Michaelson and her mother Elizabeth Egbert is a sculptor and the Executive Director and President of the Staten Island Museum. Michaelson took up piano at age five, and trained until seven at Manhattan's Third Street Music School, continuing for many more years at the Jewish Community Center of S.I.'s Dorothy Delson Kuhn Music Institute. While there she met vocal coach Elizabeth McCullough, who worked with her through high school.[5] She is a graduate of Staten Island Technical High School and Binghamton University, where she received a degree in theater.[5] Her time at Binghamton is both mentioned in and the backdrop for the song, "The Hat." She grew up doing a musical theater group called "Kids On Stage". Later in life, she became a director until she decided to pursue her career in music. On September 10, 2008, she opened for Dave Matthews Band's Stand Up for a Cure charity show at Madison Square Garden. Her set included Die Alone, Breakable, Overboard, Be OK, The Way I Am, Locked Up and some playful covers of Ice Ice Baby and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme song. She closed her set with a solo acoustic performance of Over the Rainbow in tribute to the late DMB saxophonist LeRoi Moore.

In the fall of 2008, she opened for Jason Mraz on his Europe tour, touring in the UK, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany and France amongst others. « hide
