Canadian singer-songwriter, also known by her former stage name Chinawoman, Michelle Gurevich’s music is influenced by her Russian heritage, and has been described as slowcore rock and "lo-fi pop".
Maneuvering between grandiose retro motifs and a surprising sincerity, Michelle Gurevich’s songs are tragicomic, melody-driven, sentimental and suspended in dark glamour. She combines humor with dark realism in smoky and intimate ballads delivered with cutting and fatalistic lyrics. Her music has drawn comparisons to Nico and Leonard Cohen, Soviet-era singing stars such as early Alla Pugacheva, with a voice akin to Tanita Tikaram. Initially operating under the moniker “Chinawoman,” in 2016 she announced a switch to her real name which included the re-release of all previous albums.
With shows regularly selling out in cities like Istanbul, Berlin, Warsaw, and Athens, Michelle has established a niche that includes the East European diaspora, the Berlin queer scene, and those with a taste for the melodramatic balladry of Charles Aznavour, Zeki Müren and Lucio Dalla.
