CARMEL MIKOL “Daughter of a Working Man”

A Sweet Release...

A decade in the making, Daughter of a Working Man is both an elegy and a victory album.

It faces loss with strength and resolve, but never shies away from the dark.

Produced by The Stanfields frontman Jon Landry, Daughter of a Working Man is a folk record dressed up in strings, electronic effects, and textured vocals.

True to the lyric-driven songwriting and storytelling Mikol is known for, the songs on this album swing elegantly between deeply personal stories and broader issues of social inequality and injustice.

“I was completely cracked open emotionally while making this record,” Mikol says. Out of this fragility came honest vocals and sincere storytelling – the instruments, the studio effects, the mixing board - they are all just there to support and enhance that core, authentic thing.

Daughter of a Working Man is OUT NOW, and is Carmel Mikol's third album and first solo release in five years. Previously, Carmel won the Grand Prize in the Folk Category of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Great American Song Contest. She has performed alongside Canadian folk greats Amelia Curran, Rose Cousins, and David Francey through extensive touring and appearances at festivals across North America.
