Slackwater Sessions #13 - Michael Daniels
Michael Daniels Live, Saturday October 26th from 8-10pm!
Michael Daniels is a Canadian country music singer/songwriter who graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Business Management in 2017.
Being raised on the prairies, Michael grew up on country music. On the way to the hockey rink, baseball diamond and school, the speakers of his parents’ truck were home to the voices of Mark Chesnutt, Randy Travis and Garth Brooks. At the age of 7 his grandma taught him his first three chord song and he has been hooked on music ever since. Michael was encouraged to pursue a career in music after entering and winning a singer/song writer contest. He began writing songs and performing through western Canada while completing his business degree.
His singing and song writing caught the attention of Nashville based Gil Grand, a CCMA mulit-award winning recording artist. Gil and Michael began writing together in Nashville in the spring of 2017 and recorded Michael’s debut EP later that fall. His first single “Betting on Red” was released to Canadian radio in May of 2018, followed by “Give Me the Keys” in December. In 2019, Michael recorded again in Nashville with Gil Grand, Jeffery East and Steve Freeman, with plans to release his third single in the summer of 2019.
