Pop/soul singer-songwriter Soul Brother Mike celebrates the release of his new album “Learn To Vibe” with a midday in-store performance at Dr. Disc in downtown Windsor on May 5, 2017, with guest saxophonist Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe.

The nine-song album is Mike’s first solo CD in eight years. In that time, Paul has toured extensively across Canada, the US, and Europe and recorded half a dozen albums as the frontman-songwriter of indie-rockers Michou and bassist-songwriter behind the all-star soul group The Walkervilles.


Nothing is off-limits on Learn To Vibe – “politics, power, debts, love, it’s all there,” says Paul, who admits he rarely goes a week without penning a new song, remaining prolific since his latest project The Walkervilles disbanded last spring. “[The album] is a continuation of the soul-blues-funk style I’ve been honing these past few years, with new elements of jazz and R&B.”

The self-produced album features performances from saxophonist Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe of Big Sugar fame, vocalist Rocio Ruano (a Spanish singer-dancer-actress based in London), and a choir of crowd-sourced vocals submitted by artists across the country.

For those eager to hear the album in advance of its official release date, listeners can pre-order the album at soulbrothermike.com and receive a digital download right away, with a physical copy to follow by mail.
