Award-winning Canadian artist, Michelle Rasky has unveiled her new electro dance-pop single, “Dancing on My Own”.
The Folk Music Ontario Songwriter of the Year award-winner’s newest genre-bending release explores how Rasky finds solace in her musical compositions the same way she’s found solace in dancing — especially throughout the recent string of unforeseen worldly events.
“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-based multi-talented artist 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.”
Listening to “Dancing on My Own” encapsulates that very feeling in a genuinely profound way reflective of her dazzling skills as a singer/songwriter.
Rasky recorded “Dancing on My Own” in her home, giving the unique production another level of heart and soul. Handling vocals, instrumentation, and production, this adept guitar, and piano performer put together a profound electronic-leaning single for the masses to dance to.
Emanating a feeling of tenured practice, Rasky aimed for this release to speak to the joy and connection humans are able to find through dance.
“Basically, I wanted to make something that made me feel like dancing and hopefully would inspire others to dance too!”
