Mike Edel Announces Tour with Video

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Ready to Hit Mid-West to East Coast

With a new single, "Thought About July" 

MIKE EDEL has announced the first dates of his 2016 US tour in support of his album India, Seattle.  After a successful outing on the west coast last fall, Edel will be performing in the mid-west with dates in Kansas including a stop at this year’s Folk Alliance before moving on to Wisconsin and Ohio.  Edel then heads to the east coast with shows from Burlington, Vermont down through New York City and Philadelphia.

Edel’s newest single, “Thought About July,” is igniting FM and satellite radio with the support of a live video, released today.  Visit YouTube to view the new video: https://youtu.be/GI0BiXI0fqQ

After a relentless, yet life-affirming, tour of nearly four years, Edel returned to his Victoria, BC home in 2014 to changes in the formerly-familiar music and production scene. However, once back within the wood-walls and vintage analog recording gear studio of Juno-winning producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan), the two collaborated to create the very musical mirror-image of Edel, ultimately producing India, Seattle.

Throughout the album, Edel’s lyrics invite the listener to share in his own intimate experiences. During one of the most emotionally charged moments of the record in “Thought about July,” Edel paints an image of an island of separation, - “I thought an island was far enough away, you called me on the weekend, you wanted me to stay.” Edel elaborates further on this theme in “East Shore West Shore”, proclaiming, “You can blame in on the vast expanse, to the cold prairie towns but you just can’t.”  In “Julia”, the chorus splits the meandering details of a relationship with “I know it’s only two weeks in Calgary,” while emotionally communicating that it’s actually going to be much longer.
