Singer-songwriter Danny Michel has quite an eclectic catalogue of music to his credit. Among his eight solo albums, is a David Bowie tribute album called Loving the Alien. Other albums have names such as Tales From the Invisible Man, and Feather, Fur & Fin. Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Danny is currently in Central America recording a new album with members of the Garifuna Collective. With echoes of Garifuna, rock, funk, and Caribbean music, mashing genres together has always been exciting.
A quick bit of background: The Garifuna are an ethnic minority in Central America, whose roots are a mix of African and indigenous traditions. Michel, like many of us who listen to Garifuna music, is finding inspiration in their unique, engaging musical vocabulary. But unlike many of us, he is capable of doing something new, exciting and creative with that inspiration.
Danny is an innovator, demonstrating that creative artists in the digital age can build a rich, successful and intimate relationship with their fans. He gained publicity in 2008 for making the tracks of his hit single “Feather, Fur & Fin” available for his fans to remix and then posting their submissions on his website.
October was a flurry of Germany and Austria engagements so don’t miss your chance to see this dynamic performer in Kelowna for one night only.
