Who are the MLTR?
Michael Learns to Rock or more commonly, MLTR is a Danish band who perform in Danish and English. The members of this band are Jascha Richter, Mikkel Lentz and Kare Wanscher. Søren Madsen had also been with the band for many years.
In 1988, Jascha Richter wanted to have his own band. He invited his high school friend Kare Wanscher and both practiced together. Jascha was the singer and keyboardist, Kare the drummer. However, they needed one man more. They liked Mikkel Lentz, a guitarist who played the guitar for a rock band. These three did well but sometimes they felt the need of an extra hand. So Søren Madsen, another guitarist joined in and they were set.
In spite of their talents, they had a rough start. In their first public show, only 20 people attended their performance. After two months, they entered into the Aarhus annual talent contest. They won this well known contest of Denmark and caught the attention of Jens Peter Andersen, a jury at the show who later became the band’s manager.
There is an interesting story how the band got its name, Michael Learns to Rock. Jascha Richter had planned to send a recorded demo of their song to the song competition but at the last moment realized that the group did not have a name. He signed off as ‘Michael Learns to Rock’, casually naming after Michael Jackson. The name became a success and was later abbreviated as MLTR. They initially performed for Danish songs and later started performing in English for the international market.
MLTR got their international fame in their second album, Colours. Sleeping Child was one of the singles in this album. They album sold over 1.1 million copies.
One of their greatest success stories came from Asia. The group was madly loved by the Asian fans. Be it Thailand, Hong Kong or Vietnam, thousands came to their concerts. All tickets were sold out in a few hours. MLTR was and is still also loved by millions of fans in India, Japan, Brazil, South Africa and UAE.
Michael Learns to Rock has been regularly performing since 1988. Their music still touches the soul. In 2000, their second guitarist Søren Madsen left the group to pursue a solo career. The group members have taken a break to look back, take some time and compose something new. Jascha Richter released his solo Planet Blue in the meantime.
Even after their beautiful creations and international success, there have been critics and analyses. However, the timeless performance of MLTR answers all queries. Even after three decades, they have fans all over the world and of all ages, creed and ethnicity. Jascha Richter commented on their worldwide success saying that they are able to touch people’s hearts through good music because ‘music defies all geographic categorization’.
Music is truly the universal language because it speaks to our heart. We wish the best to MLTR. Keep Rocking Michael!
