JPR Live Sessions Presented By Sierra Nevada: Mike Edel

"What is the future, if this is now?” asks Canadian-born Mike Edel on his latest single. This question, echoing throughout the lush indie-rock track “Challenger,” recounting the 1986 Space Shuttle tragedy and the loss of optimism in technology, politics and beyond, similarly echoes throughout Edel’s latest album Thresholds, produced by Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla.

While moving through a season of both personal and social thresholds and change, Edel has delivered recent singles "Go With You" and "31" which has been on CBC Music’s Top 20 Charts in Canada for 6 weeks.

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 across North America, 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.
