Blog Guelph: Maybe You Can Find It In Your Heart

This lovely photo of our treasured Guelph, at a distance, was selected as an introduction to today’s Music Monday feature, who isn’t quite as local as most of the artists profiled here each week. Maybe you can find it in your heart today to check out a talented musician and songwriter from the larger local Kitchener/Waterloo area.

In 2004 Danny Michel was nominated for “New Artist of the Year” at the Juno Awards. A few years later the title track from an independently released album, was included on a "Playlist for the Planet" released by the David Suzuki Foundation. I used it to close out "Pure Guelphishness" on CFRU this morning from 9-9:30am.

The full playlist:
“Two Hearts” The Invisible Man (2004)
“What Colour Are You” Blackbirds Are Dancing Over Me (2012)
“Maybe You Can Find It In Your Heart” Sunset Sea (2010)
“Wish Willy” Sunset Sea (2010)
“Sad & Beautiful World” Blackbirds Are Dancing Over Me (2012)
“The Graduation Present” Fibsville (1999)
“Feather, Fur & Fin” (2008).

On the air, I accidentally said I couldn’t find his newest release in CFRU’s music library! I just got mixed up about the title of his newest release because of the one-sheet included with the CD, which showed the fall tour dates, and because I know he is just starting a new tour…
Are you interested in an entertaining live show supporting a fantatic album recorded with The Garifuna Collective, an Afro-Amerindian cultural group, and released on Six Shooter Records? The recording was nominated for the Juno Award for World Music Album of the Year and earlier this month, it was also longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize, which will be announced in September... If so, you can check out a show in Waterloo at the Starlight on Tuesday night. Maybe I’ll see you there!
