Michelle Creber compares thee to a sunny day on her sweetly romantic new single and video Feels Like Summer — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Co-written with Christopher Ward (Black Velvet), Luke McMaster and Arun Chatervelli, the Canadian singer-songwriter’s Sheryl Crow-like track offers a delightful mix of crystal-clear vocal harmonies layered over easy, beachy beats.
“This positive, upbeat jam is meant to celebrate the brighter days ahead and the great summer we all deserve to have in 2021,” the Vancouver artist says. “I hope this song sets the mood for a happy and healthy (fully vaccinated) summer!”
Speaking of the pandemic, it definitely affected how the song was created. “The process was extra challenging because everything had to be done remotely,” says Creber, who ended up engineering all her own vocals in her new home studio. “It was a learning curve that involved layers and layers of doubles and harmonies; my Logic file had over 100 vocal recording tracks in it… Crazy!! But we overcame it!”
This single comes in the wake of Creber’s seventh album Storm, released in May 2020. Her previous releases include 2018’s On Display, Timeless: Songs of a Century, A Creber Christmas (Volumes 1 & 2), and three albums with Gabriel Brown (aka Black Gryph0n): At Home, Tribute and Getting Stronger.
Rooted in pop with rock and AC influences, Creber’s songs combine smart lyrics with warmth and humour, as well as a sprinkling of irony and grit. She champions the underdog, always hoping to reach fans with a message of positivity, mental and physical health, acceptance, and advocacy for minority groups and the LGBTQ community.
