I was immediately taken by the groovy, grungy, soulful cover of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” by Michelle Kash.
In alt-pop mode, Kash serves confident yet moody vocals across a sultry soundscape. The music video is a saturated, evocative vision that’s nearly psychedelic in seductive, shadowy style.
“There’s a sensual vibe to everything,” says Kash. “It’s moody, but it’s also dark. Across the music, I feel like what I’m doing is just human.”
“When I sing ‘Personal Jesus,’ I have a vision of a sexual savior within myself or whom I look for in others,” she explains. “It’s gritty and shadowy like an after-hours party. I hadn’t seen a woman cover the song, which added a different dimension. It paves the way for where I want to go musically.”
In addition to her music, Michelle has had a lifelong commitment to philanthropy and advocating for gender equality, female empowerment and is a fierce fighter for animal rights.
