NEW ALBUM TO BE RELEASED ONE SONG AT A TIME OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS AND MONTHS
TOUR DATES CONTINUE JUNE 21
Beginning today, Danny Michel starts 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. Fans can help out with the album via Michel’s Indiegogo campaign HERE
Today, Michel is releasing the first track off the album, “Born In The Wild”, 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.

After spending much of the last year performing around the world and working to raise money for charities, Danny Michel is heading out on the road this summer. Full tour dates can be found below.
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.
Earlier this year, Michel spent some time in Morocco performing with Gold Medal Plates, with Jim Cuddy, Ed Robertson, and Jeremy Fisher. Watch his travel video from the trip, along with a performance of “Sad And Beautiful World” here. In December, Michel was in Belize to check in on the Ocean Academy School, a small non-profit community high school which he has been working to raise funds for since 2011.
