Victoria’s Michael Wilford has released his new single ‘Esraela (feat. Elijah Quinn) available for digital download and streaming.

‘Esraela’ is the third in a series of singles the Victoria drummer has released as a songwriter and collaborated with guest vocalists. This single features Elijah Quinn.

“Elijah Quinn and I have known each other since we were teens playing in our first bands around the Northern BC music scene,” said Michael Wilford. “He has always had this incredible ‘old soul’ quality to his voice and his songwriting and he is genuinely one of my favourite artists and best friends. We recorded his vocals long distance over video chat.”

The song’s story begins with a mysterious woman sitting beside the narrator on a train with the lyrics revealing they are actually lovers rediscovering each other.

Wilford was in inspired by real life love stories he witnessed in his parents, grandparents and his own relationship with his high school sweetheart.

Wilford is also a finalist in the 2021 International Songwriting Competition in the Blues category for his song ‘Scotch’ that features Old Soul Rebel’s Chelsea D.E. Johnson on vocals.
