Toronto based songwriter Danny Michel is back on the road after taking time off to begin writing a new album.
He returns to the Slice, June 10, after starting a new tour in Victoria and Vancouver.

“We‘ve only just started the tour,” said Michel after spending the day dealing with a broken down van. He is  playing a very stripped down  tour.Danny Michel returns to Lethbridge, June 10. Photo by Richard Amery

“I’m playing solo shows,” he said.
“It’s just me and my guitar and really stripped down versions of the songs and that’s a really nice way to do it,” he said.
 He took some time off before this brief 18 day tour to write some new songs.

“ I didn’t take a break. I just stepped back. I’m getting ready to make a new record. So there will be songs from throughout my catalogue and some new songs,” he continued, noting while he enjoys touring, this time he is looking forward to returning home in time for the Pan Am Games where he will join his friends in the Belize band  The Garifuna Collective, who will be playing several shows with him around Southern Ontario.

“ I love those guys. I miss them,” he said.


“I actually can’t wait to get back home. I‘ve got an album to make. It’s time,” he said.

“ I don’t really have a process I go through to make an album . You can’t force creativity and you can’t force art. When it’s time, it’s time,” he said.

“I’m the luckiest guy in the world,” he said.
 He noted the new music will not likely have as much  world influence as his previous album which he recorded  in Belize with the Garifuna Collective.
“ It will be more folk pop music. But then my music has always been all over the map,” Michel said.

“ So it will be more of this and that,” he continued.

 He is excited to return to Lethbridge to play the Slice where he always receives a warm reception.
“It’s always a lot of fun It’s a wonderful place to play. I love it,” he said.
Tickets cost $15 in advance, $18 at the door. The show begins at 8 p.m.
