I’ve had Danny Michel on here as Song Of The Day on several occasions.  This tune is called Into The Light.  Danny is another Canadian secret that we are reluctant to share with the world.  He has a distinct sound, part Caribbean, part Canadian.  Enjoy.

One of my favourite Canadian artists, Danny Michel, released this tune last year off his album, “Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me”.  The song, “What Colour Are You” is rife with Latin rhythms, which make sense as it was recorded in Belize.  You ever been to Belize?

Danny is one of those unsung types (no pun intended) who has never had major success, yet, has managed to record 12 albums since 1998.  Very prolific, and one of those hard-working  types that earns every new fan.  I was turned on to him through his album “Valhalla” released in 2006 and have been a loyal fan ever since.
