It has been a while since Calgary based soul/ pop singer songwriter Michael Bernard Fitzgerald played Lethbridge.
The University of Lethbridge graduate brings his band to the Slice on Monday, Oct. 27 as part of his “Way Too Big, Way Too Loud” tour in support of his new CD “ Yes” which was released just over a year ago.
“ I’ve got a great band,” he said en route to a gig in Kelowna.
He will be joined by two drummers including Andrew Ball who has been playing with him for eight years and Adam Cormier.
“ I just wanted to hear more percussion,” he said of having the two drummers on board.
He will also be joined by bassist Lisa Jacobs who joins the band for her first tour with them.
“ It feels good,” he said.
In between tours, he spent six weeks in “the other L.A.” working on music for follow up to “Yes.”
“I like the climate down there and there’s lots of producers and musicians doing cool stuff,” he said adding he is working with popular ’90s Canadian R and B and soul band The Philosopher Kings members Jon Levine to produce his next album.
