Michelle Rasky gets her groove on with her single and animated video Dancing On My Own — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Fusing precisely programmed synthesizers with an expertly tracked beat, the award-winning Canadian artist’s genre-bending, home-recorded release spotlights the solace she finds in both music and dance — especially these days.
“One of the things that’s helped me feel positive and grounded over the past year has been throwing on music, and just dancing by myself,” the Ontario multi-talent shares. “Losing ourselves in song and movement can be so uplifting … It’s this beautiful form of self-expression and a way to be present — to enjoy the feeling of being alive and connected. I really wanted to bring that kind of energy into this song. Basically, I wanted to make something that made me feel like dancing and hopefully would inspire others to dance too!”
With an array of talent at her disposal — from her multi-instrumental abilities to production experience — Rasky has been on a lifelong journey with music. “I grew up in a musical household and started playing piano when I was three years old,” she recalls. “I was always passionate about a wide variety of music, and I think my love and respect for so many different artists continue to shape my approach to writing and producing.”
Along the way, the Toronto-born artist has found a knack for blending genres to create her unique pop hybrids that fans have come to know and love. While she has been developing her sound since first stepping onto the scene, her newest venture into the electro-pop dance scene feels fine-tuned and proficient. Expanding her musical exploration, the dynamic artist has embraced ambient textures, synthesizers, and programmed beats, merging her love of electronic music into her expansive style.
