Mike Edel

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

After four years of relentless touring, Victoria, B.C.-based singer/songwriter Mike Edel returns with "East Shore / West Shore," the first taste of his forthcoming album India, Seattle. It marks his first release in a recently inked deal with Victoria-based Cordova Bay Records. "East Shore / West Shore" was produced by Juno Award winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan), whose trademark sonic flourishes perfectly complement Edel's expansive, image-filled songwriting, traits also displayed in the song's video, shot with vintage 16mm film.

"'East Shore / West Shore' could be the only song on this record if it was up to me," Edel says. "It's kind of a trailer for the album, you see and hear everything in it, lyrically and sonically. I recorded this song three times and when I think about it - it got tracked in five different studios in total, in Victoria, Vancouver and San Diego. 'East Shore / West Shore' is about struggle, desire and finding middle ground."

You can listen to "East Shore / West Shore" on Edel's website, where it is also available as a free download.

Born and raised in rural Alberta, Edel has the work ethic to prove it, having played hundreds of shows across the U.S. and Canada. Soon after relocating to Victoria in early 2011, he was named The Zone @ 91.3's Band Of The Month, and in 2012 he earned a top five placing in 102.7 The Peak's Performance Project. The year was capped off with the track "The Country Where I Came From" being named Single of the Year by the Victoria Times-Colonist. Since then, Edel has earned rave reviews for performances at the Victoria International Jazz Fest, Rifflandia Festival and Tall Tree Festival, while also sharing stages with Serena Ryder, Hannah Georgas and Chad Van Gaalen. Edel will be embarking on another extensive Canadian tour throughout the spring and summer in support of India, Seattle.
