"I have listened, watched and interviewed many Atlantic Canadian musicians... All of them have something great to offer the music scene on one level or another. But this week I was witness to something different. I interviewed a young musician called Michael Redden. He is a passionate musician…I was handed his new CD and began listening to it during my twenty minute journey home. I was on track five by the time I arrived at my driveway. I sat in the car for another 20 minutes to listen to the whole CD. I could not believe that a young person would have written, produced and performed a CD of such maturity. Each track different, yet tied together with Michael's beautiful, vocal tones. Being a film director, Michael's lyrics conjure up endless visuals and stories which stay engrained in my mind. So much so, that I pitched an idea to Michael's manager to create a music video for the song 'Running in Circles'. After ten years of directing television commercials, 'Running in Circles' triggered something deep in me and we are now in pre production. I believe a wide spectrum of people can relate to the themes on the CD and they have been delivered in a memorable and engaging way. Michael Redden may not have the flashy eccentric image that is fashioned for many of the new upstarts in the music scene. Michael Redden and his music are far, far deeper and expansive than that. Michael Redden was born with music in his soul." - Haligonia.ca & Concept X

In today’s hectic world, it can be difficult to find a place of tranquility. Michael Redden offers listeners a refreshing escape through his musical artistry and expression. Like an artist with a palette, Michael has a remarkable ability to paint a vivid picture with his words and song.

Michael was born on February 13, 1987 and spent his early years in Hubbards, NS. At a young age, Michael began to teach himself to play guitar and by the time he was 14, began to write his own music. Michael’s early influences included James Taylor, Colin James, and John Mayer. At 19, after a tragic personal loss, Michael’s music became a vehicle for his expression and was a source of strength and healing. Now at the age of 23 and living in Halifax, Michael has an expansive original repertoire which reflects a maturity beyond his years.

In September 2009, Michael released his debut independent album, Musical Chairs. The nine-track album has earned Michael a growing fan base and critical acclaim locally. Together, his first 2 singles "Holding It All" and "Are You Really in Love" have spent over 17 weeks on the East Coast Countdown and "Are You Really in Love" was recently at #1.

Michael has been involved in a number of non-profit musical ventures including a collaborative single for an environmental campaign. He has been active performer and has made several radio and television appearances. His first music videos for his singles "Running in Circles" and "Are You Really in Love" are currently in production with an anticipated release in October 2010.
