Singer-songwriter MICHELLE CREBER comes to terms with the past in “Like It Never Happened”
We all have this box of letters and photographs commemorating a special but difficult relationship; whether it’s pushed to the back of a closet or only exists in the back of one’s mind, beloved Canadian singer and actress, and beloved animated voice, Michelle Creber’s new single, “Like It Never Happened, ”tells the story of one of these and nearly forgotten relationships – and it’s available now.
“Letters and cards
The remains of
A time that I
I couldn’t hide from myself “
This is how “Like It Never Happened” opens …
Layered on beautiful full-bodied pianos and keyboards, Creber sings in her crystal-clear vocal style, and the feeling of loneliness and regret is visceral. Then, after a near whisper, the Vancouver artist hits us with a soaring melody coming straight from the core. The corresponding video shows Creber in a white suit and all alone in a beautiful empty mansion, juxtaposed with footage of herself wrapped in a hoodie and navigating a deserted subway station.
“At the heart of its theme, ‘Like It Never Happened’ is a song about accepting and achieving certain things that are best left in the past,” shares Creber. “Whether it’s our past relationships, our past actions, or our past selves is up to you. This video is an open canvas on which you can paint your own interpretations.
“Like It Never Happened” is one of Creber’s personal favorites from his album, Storm. “The song has always meant a lot to me,” she says. “From the demo to the finalization, I was very invested in the production process and particularly picky about the vocals and the orchestration. Release that song into the world, with the Storm album, was an important step for me.
Creber is a dynamic and exciting performer, with a compelling stage presence and a wealth of experience that defies her young age. Since releasing her debut album, she has performed her music at concerts in major cities across the United States, Canada, Germany, Poland, Thailand, Australia, and the United Kingdom. She has a dedicated, enthusiastic and very supportive fan base through her work on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Her most important roles in the series are Apple Bloom and the singing voice of Sweetie Belle in the first three seasons of the series, and it’s easy to see why she is described as relevant, honest, thoughtful and inspiring, Michelle’s music. Creber is making a positive difference in the world and in the lives of his listeners. She is also proud to be an official ambassador for Kids Help Phone.
Storm was released in 2020 and received industry acclaim. The album has sold and released in over 130 countries and was ranked in the top 100 on the US and Canadian Billboard charts. Creber’s previous albums include On display (2018), which also sold and distributed worldwide with a Top 100 placement in the United States; Timeless: Songs of a Century (classic blankets); A Creber Christmas (Volumes 1 & 2); and three albums with YouTube star and performer partner Gabriel Brown (aka Black Gryph0n): At home, Tribute and bestseller Become stronger.
“Like it never happened” and Storm are available now.
