How it all started...

For singer-songwriter and guitarist Mikael Pederson, music is a way to connect with the world and inspire those around him. Born and raised in Oregon, Mikael began his career singing and playing weekly with his band at the local coffee houses and venues. His music has drawn comparisons to artists like John Mayer, James Taylor, and Jack Johnson. With hints of soul and blues driven guitar riffs, he adds vivid story telling to create a compelling performance. Mikael seeks to inspire and encourage others through his songs and performances which have taken him to stages such as the House of Blues, Clackamas County Fair, South Pasadena Eclectic Festival and Cherry Fest NW. He has released several albums and singles, and has been featured on Kink 101.9, Krush 92.5 and Pandora. Most recently his song “Away from Here” was featured on the finale of “The Bachelor" on ABC. You may have also heard his song “Your Love” on the season finale of “Temptation Island” on the USA network. Mikael is releasing a new single "No Ordinary Girl" in October 2019.
