Biography

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.
