    Michelle Gurevich formerly known as Chinawoman, is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Her music is influenced by her Russian heritage, and has been described as slowcore rock and "lo-fi pop".Her largest fanbase is in Eastern Europe. Michelle Gurevich was born in Toronto, Ontario, to Russian immigrants and was raised with Russian as her first language. Her father was an engineer in Soviet Leningrad and her mother a Kirov ballerina (the subject of Michelle's "Russian Ballerina"). Gurevich originally wanted to become a filmmaker and worked ten years in the industry before turning to music. "I eventually tried to write a song and found it was not only cheaper, but much easier to get a good result.. Gurevich began her career recording in her bedroom. The stage name "Chinawoman" was chosen as a spur-of-the-moment joke when Garageband prompted her former band name. Michelle Gurevich has cited Alla Pugacheva, Adriano Celentano, Charles Aznavour, Yoko Ono, Francis Lai, Nino Rota, Xavier Dolan, Todor Kobakov, Jennifer Castle, and filmmaker Federico Fellini as influences on her music. In 2013, "Russian Ballerina" was featured on the commercial for the Nokia Lumia 1020. In 2014, Gurevich's song "Party Girl" inspired the 2014 French film Party Girl. « hide
