I ran into Barry Pearlman from Rick Turner Guitars at Bob Brozman's workshop yesterday. He tipped us off that Mott's Apple Juice has picked up Compass Rose player Ingrid Michaelson's song BE OK for it's current TV commercial. That'll put a few well-deserved bills in her uke-case.
But the big news is that Rick is working with Ingrid to design a signature Ingrid Michaelson Compass Rose tenor. It'll be called "The Ingrid," natch, and will feature a heart motif in the headstock. You want to be the all-time hero mom or dad next Xmas? Ping Rick and see if you can get on the waiting list. Link
Oh, and signing Ingrid in the first place? Barry's idea. (Nice work, Mr. Pearlman.)
