Mykeljon

 Mykeljon

The  World Stood Still, helps mark a milestone in an awaited long journey that has spanned years and continents. What’s remained consistent along the way though has been Mykeljon’s passion and dedication. These traits have kept him going through the beginning of his musical education, to the completion of the recording of his first album. But it was Mykeljon’s godmother who helped fuel that passion, inspire that dedication, and nurture the talents he displayed from a very young age.

Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Mykeljon found his way to music and the guitar at only four years old. His natural aptitude for performing brought him the honour of playing for Queen Elizabeth II when he was eleven. Even with this, music was not the career path that Mykeljon was set to follow.

It was then that he made the very bold move of quitting his current studies and throwing himself head first into a future in music. Read More
