Born next door to a candy factory, MapleMusic Recordings artist Danny Michel (mish-elle) has been described as "Tom Waits meets Cheap Trick." It's a pretty accurate analogy as Danny's songs run the gamut from crunchy/sweet pop songs to dark tales.

When armed with his incendiary band of Can-rock's best session players, Danny provides a rock show to blow the roof off any club. Equally entertaining, his solo show lights the fuse for diehard and new fans alike. "I really like to put on a show," states the self-proclaimed “freak about details." "Lights, sounds, and banter are important so it can be as cool and special as it can be. If I just played an acoustic and sang I think I'd bore myself to death. Call it musical ADD." Danny holds court on stage whether it's a room of 10 people or a festival of thousands.

Fearless and full of surprises, you never know which tricks he'll pull from his back pocket. Whether he's playing a chime-solo on a cell phone, or attempting a song he's never played before on an out-of-tune piano, every moment is fresh, especially in a world of a zillion guys with guitars. He helped pioneer (and master) the now ubiquitous looping pedal board to give his solo show another layer. The prodigious Danny has been performing his electric shows since before he was old enough to drive! With six prior solo albums and his first Juno nomination (Best New Artist 2005) under his belt, Danny is clearly a career artist with only the tip of his musical iceberg revealed.
