Secretly Canadian introduces DAVID VANDERVELDE to the world

DAVID VANDERVELDE appeared before us one hot summer day like a dynamo. The sound we heard coming through in stereo was that of our coming-of-age years screaming back at us – a faithful reminder that our beauteous days of bowing before pin-up rock stars and carving iconographic logos on desktops and in famous treetrunks have not passed us by. No, David Vandervelde is here to remind us that the truest, most primal and addictive properties of rock n’ roll are ageless. Indeed, this Chicagoan (by way of the dunes of West Michigan) recorded the A-side to his debut single a few years ago at age 19, yet he shows the maturity and swagger of a man much longer in the tooth. Bearing a resemblance to MARC BOLAN and DAVID BOWIE on these two songs, we’re eagerly anticipating his upcoming debut full-length, which will open the door into a much broader musical universe. Secretly Canadian is very proud to welcome David Vandervelde to the family.

The “Jacket” / “Murder In Michigan” 7″ single will be available in all good record stores on November 21, 2006. For futurists, a free download of “Jacket” is now available at:
