With three Juno nominations, for the Polaris Prize, The CBC "Heart Of Gold" and a pile of albums under his belt, Danny Michel is unquestionably one of Canada’s finest songwriters. His thoughtful lyrics and earnest performances have earned him a devoted fan base.
In 2015, Danny relocated to Belize where he tracked down one of his favorite bands, The Garifuna Collective, a unique Afro-Amerindian cultural group. He convinced them to make an album together. The album “Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me” was named as “one of the finest musical works of our time” by Billboards Larry Leblanc. The album landed him a JUNO nomination and a sold out summer tour of North America with The Garifuna Collective as his band.
In 2016, Danny returned to Canada to record "Matadora," his most deeply humanist album to date. This ten-song collection explores the environmentalist, pacifist, romanticist, archivist, and space enthusiast in Danny.
Then it was off to the Canadian high Arctic where Danny recorded “Khlebnikov”, possibly the most northern album ever recorded/above 80°. Recorded aboard the legendary Soviet-era Russian ice-breaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov during an 18-day arctic expedition curated by Astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield. Once home, Danny’s recordings were arranged for brass & strings by film composer Rob Carli. The result is a suite of atmospheric and haunting songs about the Arctic, our planet, and our place in it.
When he’s not performing he’s fighting for musicians’ rights, the environment, making short films, producing, running his studio or filming his comedy/sci-fi/music show “Dan’s Space Van”.
