Born in Trollhattan, Sweden , Michael Martinsson discovered a love for music at an early age. Inspired by the works of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix, Michael started his own band at the age of 9. At 18 he relocated from Sweden to Los Angeles to bring his dream to reality. Michael instantly found a career performing and recording alongside the prime movers of the Hollywood Music Scene. To date, Michael has recorded and toured with more than 200 acts throughout the United States, and globally with regular appearances the UK, England and of course, back home Sweden.
For the better part of a decade, starting in 2009, Michael toured almost exclusively with South African singer Dilana (as seen on TV’s Rock Star Super Nova). Performing more than 500 shows together, Michael’s support brought Dilana face to face with collectively hundreds of thousands of music fans on stages across multiple continents and dozens of countries.
Michael records and performs Acoustic and Electric Guitar and provides both backing, and when required, lead vocal duties. Since the 1990’s, he has mainly used vintage Fender Amplifiers and Gibson Les Paul Guitars.
