Fine Tuned: Candy machine mood ring inspires colourful song

Ever wonder how a song gets its name? Or why a musician picks a certain lyric to tell a story?

Those are questions Fine Tuned sets out to answer.

This week, we hear from a musician who's been on the scene for about 15 years. Danny Michel has more than ten albums under his belt, and he's been nominated for a couple of Junos.

His latest recording took him to Central America -- where he got to play and record with some of that country's top musicians.

He dropped by our studio to share a story about the first single off his album "Black birds are dancing over me," called What Colour Are You.

We let him pick up the story from there.
