Today, Mike Edel is sharing the new video for “31”, his ‘I Won’t Back Down’, 30s is the new 20s inspired anthem. A one-take visual of Mike dancing and singing, he says the video shoot “really tired me out. I'm glad it's a one-shot video because I don't think I had it in me to shoot it again... because I'm 31.”
Mike further explains that “31” is about “your friends getting real jobs, buying houses, renovating their basements to their newly purchased homes, then renting it out and talking about real estate all the time.” Live In Limbo claims “31” is “a glorious folk-pop meditation on growing older and not losing your sense of adventure. The song acts as a rallying point that your best days are not behind you.”
This Fall, Mike Edel will continue on tour throughout Canada to support his two new singles, “31” and “Go With You”, both of which were produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie).
Recently, Mike also shared the video for “Go With You”, an optimistic indie-pop anthem for 2018’s dwindling days of summer and beyond. The video sees Mike surprise his dad at home just to spend the day with him; bowling, at the bookstore, getting a key cut, and eating pizza. “I am still not sure if he knows we made the music video,” says Mike.
Edel’s music has been streamed 2 million times across major platforms, being in rotation on CBC Music, AAA Radio across the United States, and on Sirius XM’s The Loft. In the past few years he’s played hundreds of shows including Rifflandia Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Regina Folk Festival, Victoria International Jazz Festival, and Upstream Music Festival, having shared the stage with Serena Ryder, Foy Vance, Said The Whale, and Josh Garrels.
Splitting his time between Seattle and the mountains of British Columbia, Edel is looking forward to hitting the road with new music and will be touring across North America in the coming months. Dates below with more to be announced.
