Vancouver-based musician Daniel Moir will showcase his talents at Vernon’s Talkin’ Donkey Coffee House, Friday.

Moir last visited Vernon in Sept. 2011, when he shared the stage with Grapes of Wrath singer Kevin Kane, and has seen many changes since his recent move to B.C. from his hometown of Edmonton.

“I’m a nature guy, which is one big reason why I moved here. It’s kind of like heaven for me,” he said.

Fresh off performing at North by Northeast in Toronto, Moir has been on a fast rise since the 2010 release of his second album, Road. His music has seen placements with NBC and he has performed for crowds as big as 15,000.

He continues to write, record and tour relentlessly, and writes on his blog that he recorded a new song, called Today the Clouds, whilst in Toronto.

“I am thrilled with how the recording turned out…. It will be released sometime soon this summer,” he said.

Locals can catch Moir when he stops by the Talkin’ Donkey, located on 32nd Avenue, Friday at 8 p.m.
