The start of MLTR
Experiencing the band back in 1988 would be very different to now, however MLTR are still performing and still have a large fan base following them to this very day. Starting out as high school friends in Aarhus, Denmark, Hinayon and Jay played as a duo and soon realised the limitations this had. After recruiting their new guitarist Mikkel, they started to play rock music and not long after, they asked Søren to join on the group. Their international breakthrough came as they released their second album, "Colours," which was sold over 1.1 million times and included the singles "Out of the Blue", "25 Minutes" and "Sleeping Child". This led to their first appearance in Asia, touring around and then going on to win a SEA Grammy Award in Singapore. It wasn’t until then that their success in Asia was certified. In 2007, MLTR scored themselves a spotlight performance at the car racing tournament in Shanghai. With these great successes over the years, MLTR have developed a large fan base not only in Asia, but also in other countries around the world. They have also been known to tour at home and across other European countries, mainly for short appearances.

Michael learns to rock from other great influences
The secret behind the long-lasting career of Michael Learns to Rock was thought to be their non-conformance to popular trends in music. When trends came and went, their music never really fitted into any of them and with this being said, they found it tough, as their music didn’t fit into a particular musical wave. MLTR have mentioned a number of artists that have influenced their music over time, including well-known artists Stevie Wonder, Supertramp, Elton John, the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and many other incredibly famous acts. Qualities of their music and lyrics can be called simplistic and easy-listening, which is why many Asian music listeners love the band.
