Slow the Rain is the debut full-length studio album recorded by American pop singer Ingrid Michaelson. It was self-released on January 10, 2005.[2]


Michaelson recorded the album while still living on Staten Island and mainly busking on lower Manhattan and on platforms of her favorite New York Transit Authority rapid transit stations (NYC's subway).[2]

Michaelson could not find a label to sponsor her album, as she was in 2005 one of the myriad unknowns aspiring to a career in folk music in New York City and playing for hire, on subway platforms and doing an occasional open mike or gig if she could get one. She paid for the recording, mixing and physical manufacturing of the disk.
