Michelle Ray, Chasing Shadows Review
Michelle Ray is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter who was blessed with a diverse musical genre upbringing. “I started singing before I could talk,” Ray exclaims. The natural-born talent began classical training at age ten after begging for vocal lessons. Ray’s technical abilities and love of melody naturally gravitated towards soul/R&B pop music. Influenced by stars like Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars, Ray soon found her own sound. Her outstanding vocals landed her a spot on NBC’s The Voice, Team Blake, Season 4. Her voice has since been broadcasted on national commercials for Maybelline, Mastercard, JCPenny, Nickelodeon, and numerous others, and she’s also been featured in many shows including Garry Marshall’s “Mother’s Day,” Amazon Prime’s “The Expanse,” and Bravo’s “VanderPump Rules.” Ray is now releasing her single “Chasing Shadows,” a pop offering that sounds like sweet, sweet summer.Bottom Line: “Chasing Shadows” is a result of Ray spending the past year focusing on writing and recording. The stirring melody is adorned with soul-bearing lyrics. Ray elaborates,” ‘Chasing Shadows’ is about thinking you can see or feel this presence everywhere you go, but you can never actually hold it, it’s not tangible, so is it real or just your imagination? Instagram-filtered memories and drive-in movie fantasies melt together as we imagine a love that could save us. An electric summer anthem that will shine a light when you’re dancing in the dark.” The music has solid production, active synths, and a hip late-night dance beat. Ray’s voice is focused and filled with soulful tones with an opulent shimmer in her low tones. The danceable beats and catchy lyrics add up to an enthusiastic listen. That’s the short of it!
