Michelle Treacy High Heels in the Moshpit

With over 3M Spotify streams to date, Treacy’s rise began with an impromptu duet with Lady Gaga during her ArtRave tour. A major-label deal soon followed with a 16 week hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in Canada. Treacy then won the second season of CTV’s series The Launch and released singles like “Armageddon” and “Emotional”. 

Michelle Treacy’s newest EP, High Heels in the Moshpit, out now on Position Music is the first time the songstress has truly felt herself with a new sound: Tame Impala meets Austin Powers. Intimately recorded in her bedroom closet with maximum creative freedom and minimal agenda, the left-of-center pop musician reveals an authentically fresh take on music that will undoubtedly make listeners groove and dance along.

Comical and witty, Treacy is beloved by her fans on social media, and currently has over 50K Instagram Followers, and can more recently been seen on TikTok in stylishly funky outfits and sharing extremely fun music moments, while also providing a peek into her more tender and emotional side

Tracks like “It Feels So Good To Be Back” and “Love Every Minute” highlight Treacy’s spunky carefree lyrics that remind us to not overthink things and enjoy the present moment for what it is. On High Heels in the Moshpit, Treacy’s voice is seamlessly set to slightly left-of-center melodies infused in a variety of genres from punk to new wave–culminating in a delightful concoction for music fans of all genres

“This is the first time I’ve ever truly felt like me while recording. This is the first time I didn’t judge myself and I just wrote what felt right. I’m badass, I have a lot to say and I just wanna have fun. I hope this EP makes people feel free and seen. I hope people allow themselves to let go when listening to it. It’s time to feel good, get up and dance and hug each other again,” Treacy says.

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
