Westbank Country Opry – Dec 2nd, 2018 Event
December 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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 new single “Betting on Red” will be released to Canadian radio in May of 2018. Michael is thankful to the very talented Jeffery East and Steve Freeman who also worked on the album.
Michael’s focus in 2018 will be to continue to perform throughout Canada and to continue his work with Gil to promote the EP. He plans to head back to Nashville in early fall to continue writing songs.
