About Michelle & Her Music

The majority of songs that I write are worship songs, but I write love songs too. It was in a dream a year ago, that I heard a beautiful worship song. I wrote it down and eventually had it produced on my first album 'Walk With Me' along with others that I wrote following that dream. Up until this point, although a teacher and musician, I had not thought that songwriting was my gift, so had never really tried.

Through encouragement from my parents, my husband David and our children, I have had my best songs produced.

My albums, 'Walk With Me' and my Christmas album, 'Love Came Down' are available to buy as downloads or CDs and a proportion of money from each sale goes directly to my chosen charities, The Christian School, Takeley and Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF).

My third album, 'Summer Dreams' has just been recorded and is available for sale or immediate download! Along with my Christian charities, I will be supporting The Cystic Fibrosis Trust also.

I have been fortunate enough to hear some of my songs played on a local radio station also which has been an encouragement in itself to continue. I am also trying to write other contemporary songs and have had some fun singing cover versions also in the studio! I got to play my oboe during a track on 'Summer Dreams', and I hope to use the oboe much more in the future at the Studio.

On 20th December 2010 I entered a Christmas competition with Saint FM Radio, Maldon which was very exciting, and I came 2nd. I entered track number 1 from my new album 'Summer Dreams' into Saint fm's summer competition, held on Monday July 18th 2011. The track was written especially for my brother. I was thrilled with joint 2nd place out of 9 artists. Thank you for support and encouragement.

On 19th Debember 2011 I entered the Saint fm Maldon Fab Festive Christmas Competition and I was delighted to come 1st! Thank you to Nigel at Middle C for the beautiful production on my song 'It's Christmastime'. I have been fortunate to have an interview with Jack fm in Hertfordshire raising awareness for my charity work through the sale of my song and also an invitation to the station at Saint fm (Maldon) to talk about my songwriting and work.

If you love the Welsh language like me, please look out for the Lord's Prayer on youtube spoken in WELSH by me. I was taught this by my late grandmother as a child and it is my tribute to her to share this. (Youtube - michellekingmusic). Thanks to Nigel at Middle C for his beautiful piano accompaniment on this important prayer. I have also added The Lord's Prayer in Spanish, which has again been beautifully accompanied by Middle C.

In memory of my Grace my mother in law, I have had a new Christmas CD single recorded for 2011, called 'It's Christmastime'. If you would like a copy please contact me via the website. I am supporting two charities, 'The Alzheimer's Society' and 'Macmillan Cancer Support'. Two thirds of every sale goes directly to these charities. Thank you for your support.

I am on a musical journey which started as an oboist, and I am branching out with confidence and joy into singing/songwriting too.

Long may my journey continue!
