Danny  Michel

Danny Michel vocals and guitar

Danny Michel is unquestionably one of Canada’s finest songwriters whose hopeful songs find a home in everyone's heart. His thoughtful lyrics and earnest performances have earned him a devoted fan base, nominations for three Juno awards, and The CBC’s "Heart Of Gold".

Danny’s most recent project “Khlebnikov” was written and recorded aboard the legendary Soviet-era Russian ice-breaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov during an 18-day arctic expedition through the northwest passage. Danny was invited to join “Generator Arctic” by Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield who assembled a small group of scientists, photographers, writers, musicians, and videographers to capture a unique experience unlike ever before.

Once home from the Arctic, Danny’s recordings were arranged for brass and 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. Possibly the most northern recorded album ever recorded (above 80°), Danny, Chris & Rob are performing "Khlebnikov" with orchestras throughout Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, London and more in 2017.
