“I love this city more than other cities,
More than New York City, Detroit’s too pretty.
LA’s just shi**y, I look on them with pity.”
Yeah, Daniel Michael must be talking about “Portland.”
Daniel Michael is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer who spent 2011 working on a website called Project52Songs, a place where he successfully posted 52 songs over the course of 52 straight weeks.
Today’s Free MP3 of the Day, “Portland,” is a tongue-in-cheek ode to the city of rain, coffee shops and beards (all of which you’ll find pretty much every day and on every corner). It was released during week #7 of his 52 Songs endeavor.
Michael also released a folkie protest album called Traitor this past August.
