Chinawoman is a pseudonym of Michelle Gurevich, a Toronto born, Berlin-based singer-songwriter / multi-instrumentalist / sound-engineer. She débuted with Party Girl (2007, self-released) and her latest Let's Part in Style (Feb 2014, self-released).
Other self-releases include: Show Me The Face (2010) and a succession of pre-Let's Part in Style tracks: "To Be With Others" (Mar 2012), "Vacation From Love" (Feb 2013) and "Kiss In Taksim Square" (Jun 2013).
Chinawoman's sound can be traced to the exclusive Russian-only clubs of Toronto, where men in silk shirts croon tales of heartache over bossa nova synth, and to the ballet school where Gurevich spent her youth, a spectator of melodrama set to Chopin.
Songs are lush with 70's epic and/or Red Army Choir-style choruses, East-European melodies, restrained low-spoken vocals. They are predominantly written, performed and engineered by Chinawoman alone. "The music may appeal to Streisand fans with an edge, European immigrants and their lost-in-the-world grown children".
