Bio

Originally from the humble shores of Durban, South Africa, Michè​le Ducray is a versatile, fiery vocalist and singer-songwriter. She began writing and singing her own songs at the tender age of 11, whilst based overseas in China. Travelling to many different places around the world at such a young age, exposed her to a variety of music. She drew inspiration from these experiences, settling on an alternative pop sound and applied them to her own musical endeavours. When Michè​le writes, she tends to draw from her own experiences in life and utilises this through metaphorical subconscious imagery, aiming to leave her audience feeling like they have lived through these moments, themselves. After gaining a better understanding of musical theory, in 2019, Michè​le sought to create a covers band to enhance her performance experience around Christchurch city, whilst writing and performing her original music to the side. She has since played local festivals, radio stations, clubs/bars and musical productions; with upcoming intimate Spaced Out Sessions concerts being held at Grater Goods with 212 Music Group. Deciding to breathe technical life into her own music, she reached out to popular music producers Devin Abrams and Simon Gooding, last year, whom both collaborated on her first single, “Midnight”, which is due to be released this May. Described as “super dope” by Tiki Taane and Big Sima, “Midnight” tells a tale of tragedy and the awareness of how isolated one can feel in times of uncertainty. This hauntingly, majestic piece was written during the COVID-16 lockdown period.
