Mike Edel's Upcoming Album and Tour Dates
Posted: 2015-03-19 00:00:00
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada



On April 14, acclaimed Victoria, B.C. singer-songwriter Mike Edel returns with his latest album, India, Seattle, released through Cordova Bay Records. Edel hits the road with his band starting March 25, with a Canadian Music Week showcase happening May 7 at the Cameron House in Toronto. A second show at Victoria's Roxy Theatre has also been added on April 10 due to overwhelming ticket demand. See the full list of dates below. 

Pre-Order India, Seattle on iTunes

Produced by Juno Award winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan), India, Seattle encapsulates four years of Edel's extensive North America touring, with its 11 tracks boldly displaying his artistic maturity. The album's first single "Blue Above The Green" follows on the heels of "East Shore / West Shore," which has been available as a free download at www.mikeedel.com

The video for "East Shore / West Shore," shot on 16mm film at Vancouver's Warehouse Studios, debuted exclusively at Exclaim.ca. Grayowl Point described it as, "a beautiful song that hopes to bridge the distance between two lovers. The live video for 'East Shore/West Shore," like it's song, is warm and filled with sincerity." 

That description has often been applied to Edel's music, and with India, Seattle he has assembled a collection of songs both emotionally powerful and instantly memorable. "I don't think personal records are the most immediate, maybe it's that they are too specific, and mine is specific," Edel says. "It's specific to places adn moments and snapshots in my mind, and it's specific to people. I called it India, Seattle.

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. 

"[The Last of Our Mountains] is a delicately catchy record that rolls through its eight tracks as freshly and easily as wind across the harvest." Calgary Herald

"In the last two years that Mike Edel has been in Victoria he has established himself as one of the region's go-to musicians." Victoria Times-Colonist 

"Edel's voice is Damien Rice having a meeting with Dan Mangan..." SEE Magazine
