DANNY MICHEL - WHITE & GOLD
RELEASE DATE : OCTOBER 12, 2018
Danny Michel begins the journey of releasing a new album, one song at a time, over the course of the next few weeks and months. By the end of that journey, we’ll have a 6 song album that will be pressed to CD and 10” vinyl. Each song will receive its own original artwork etched into real wood, all tying into the final album cover and title. “I'm all about the idea of shorter albums, more often,” says Michel.
The first track off the album, “Born In The Wild”, is a song he wrote “for the brave kids of the #neveragain #marchforourlives movement.” The track comes complete with a video of Michel performing the song in his own little piece of the wild, near his home studio in the woods.
For "The Red Fox", Danny puts on his leather jacket and roller skates, slicks back his hair, and continues to jump the genre barrier (but not the shark) with the 50s ‘Doo-Wop’ inspired track.
The swampy "Purgatory Cove" sees Danny playing every instrument from his hidden-away forest studio and creating something a little more dreamy than usual, pairing fuzzed out guitars with ethereal lyrics..
An adventurous and fearless artist, Danny Michel is unquestionably one of Canada’s finest songwriters. His thoughtful lyrics and charming performances have earned him a devoted fan base, nominations for three JUNO Awards, The Polaris Music Prize, and The CBC’s "Heart Of Gold". Most recently, he was the winner of two Canadian Folk Music Awards for "Producer Of The Year" and "Oliver Schroer Pushing the Boundaries" for his album Khlebnikov.
