Michel is looking forward to returning to play Lethbridge with to play a new venue with a new CD in hand.

 “I think I played a sold out show there last time. This time I just put out a brand new record out which I recorded in Belize,” said the Waterloo, Ontario based singer/ songwriter Michel, calling from a  cellphone in Victoria.


“I released “Sunset Sea” on Canada Day. It’s a really fun and positive sounding. It’s definitely influenced by that Carribbean sound. A lot of people say it sounds like Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland,” though by no means would I ever say it is as good as that. It definitely has that flavour,” he said.


“I”ve played it a lot and the response has been all good,” he continued.

“Feather, Fur and Fin” , the title track of his 2008 CD, has just been announced one of the 11 songs which won David Suzuki’s “Playlist for the Planet” contest.


“I have no idea how I won it. Someone else sent it in,” he enthused.


“It was definitely flattering. Nobody even told me about it. But it is definitely an environmental song,” he said adding his show will just be himself and his guitar, which will include a lot of the new CD. 

“I have to be able to play them stripped down. All of my songs have to pass the campfire test. If I can’t play them around a campfire with just an acoustic guitar, then they’ve got to go,” he continued.
