When you need to restore your faith in humanity, just go to a Danny Michel show. Who else gets you to sing along to a song about what your meaningful purpose is on this earth? Sticky Magazine, Toronto
With nominations for three JUNOs, 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 & earnest performances have earned him a devoted fan base. A musical chameleon, able to slip into many genres with ease. An adventurous & fearless artist. A master at striking the right balance between unpredictability and meeting expectations, leaving you wanting more as soon as it’s over.
Past critics have praised Danny’s lyrics for having “something to say" without coming off preachy. Topics range from the environment (“Feather, Fur & Fin") to big questions ("If Gods' on your side, then who's on mine"). Others ask “Who’s Gonna Miss You when you’re gone?” a song which explores karma asking “Did you live it right?/did you live it wrong?”.
At the moment Danny is sitting in front of a blank canvas contemplating where his next album is going to take him. It could go anywhere from here. Knowing Danny, wherever it goes – it will be an adventure.
