White & Gold Album Art by Brian Bosch // DOWNLOAD HIGH-RES
A few weeks back, Danny Michel began the journey of releasing a new album, one song at a time. Now, at the end of that journey, we have White & Gold. Out today, on all streaming platforms, CD, and 10” vinyl, White & Gold is accompanied by a wonderful wood carved cover created by artist Brian Bosch.

White & Gold leads off with the dreamy, fuzzed out “Purgatory Cove”, which is currently #4 on the CBC Music Top 20. The album also features “Born In The Wild”, a song for the brave kids of the #neveragain and #marchforourlives movement; the 50s ‘Doo-Wop’ inspired “The Red Fox”; ; “Nobody Rules You”, a stripped down back-to-school version of an old song, inspired by the school kids who’ve been covering it over the years; and “Back Where You Started”, a song which reminds us Danny still has some rock in his blood.
Today also marks the release of the sixth and final track from the album, “The Right Thing”, a twangy, laid-back reminder that sometimes we need to ‘forgive and forget’.
Recently, Danny launched Season 5 of Dan’s Space Van, a mobile web-series filmed inside a customized 1978 Chevy Vandura, airbrushed in a Star Trek theme. The Show travels the world, meets interesting people and features musical guests who perform in the Van’s diamond quilted, crushed red velvet interior. So far, Season 5 has seen performances by Joel Plaskett, Skye Wallace, and Bahamas.
