Mike Edel


“I think we’re on to something new,” Canadian-born Mike Edel opens with on “Go With You,” his new indie-pop synth laden single.

In a season of both personal and social thresholds and change, Edel has delivered an optimistic indie-pop anthem for 2018’s dwindling days of summer and beyond. Edel began working with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) after sending demos to Walla while he was living north of the arctic circle in Norway. The duo adopted a ‘consistency is boring’ mantra with the new material.

The second single “31” is an “I Won’t Back Down” thirties are the new twenties anthem due out this Fall, and if the first two singles are a result of almost a full-year in the studio, we can expect more very soon.

After 2 million cumulative streams across major platforms, being in rotation on CBC Music, AAA Radio across the United States, and on Sirius XM’s The Loft; after playing hundreds of shows including Rifflandia Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Regina Folk Festival, Victoria International Jazz Festival, and Upstream Music Festival; after sharing the stage with Serena Ryder, Foy Vance, Said The Whale and Josh Garrels; and after splitting his time between Seattle, WA and the mountains of British Columbia and getting married, Edel is taking his music in particular and his life in general across a threshold, through an open door, and into the unknown.

“Go With You” is about change and vectoring forward into the unknown without regret. I love the synth lines and the hi-hat drums – It’s a departure for me, both sonically and rhythmically and I’ve very into it.
