Danny Michel, multiple Juno Award nominee, treasured songwriter, David Suzuki-approved green strummer and quiet do-gooder, comes to Six Shooter Records as a longtime All Time label favourite.

Dannyís new album, his 10th, Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me, dives into the waves of Belizeís musical deep, featuring Maya guitar, turtle shells, donkey jaw-bone, and traditional Garifuna segunda & primero drums. The album cultivates lush rhythms and sounds, the perfect backdrop for Michelís eloquently buoyant songwriting style. To make the record, Danny relocated from the Golden Horseshoe to the the foot of the Xunantunich mayan ruins in Benque Viejo del Carmen. There, he teamed up with members of the Garifuna Collective, The Benque Players, and pioneering producer Ivan Duran at Stonetree Records, a label/studio that has been instrumental in bringing the Belizean sound to the world.
