My name is Michael Christensen. Most people call me Mike. Some people call me Mikey. I have been around music my entire life. I’ve had many opportunities to perform and share music, most notably on NBC’s “The Sing-off” season 3 with BYU Vocal Point in 2011.
But even more than performing music, I love creating music. As a teenager, I would create a cappella arrangements of songs I enjoyed to sing with my family and friends. I also enjoyed composing songs on the piano and on the guitar. Once composed, I would either by myself, or with my friends, sing and record those songs. I even went so far as to buy blank CD’s and cases and spend hours at the computer burning my music on to those CD’s complete with home-made cover inserts. I would keep them in my locker at high school and advertise my music to anyone I met. I loved creating and sharing my music with my friends and family.
Since high school, I have continued to create music, mostly with piano, guitar, and vocals. Over the years, my life experiences within my faith, my marriage, and the blessing of children has inspired some of my most meaningful music.
Every now and then, I get opportunities to perform my music. Afterwards, I often have people ask me where they can get a copy of it. I decided to create this website where I could post my music so other people might be able to enjoy it. Click on this link to be directed to my music page with everything I’ve uploaded so far.
I have always believed that music has the power to create good and inspire happiness. A single song written with thoughtful words and compelling melodies can motivate someone to have just a little more hope, to remember what’s important, to laugh a little sometimes, to love more diligently, and to bring great scripts already written to song. While I enjoy creating original music, I also enjoy arranging inspiring music already written in new and powerful ways. All of this in an effort to create something inspiring and meaningful for everyone.
I also enjoy running, biking, swimming, hiking, and camping. I’m a father of three beautiful children, and husband to a wonderful wife.
