“Energy is my drive, that’s what I’m always aiming for. The music has to touch you… or it’s a waste of time.”

Mika Vandborg is widely known as one of the most talented and respected guitarists in Denmark.

He has appeared on numerous recordings and has toured with some of the best musicians and artists such as Justin Hawkins, Love Shop, Gnags, Ida Corr, Mads Langer, Dicte and Claus Hempler to name a few. Mika is also working in close collaboration with Søren Andersen on their newest project Electric Guitars and recently he released solo album where he goes back to his roots, which includes a lot of slide guitar playing, “kind of quiet album compared to others,“ he says.

Mika first picked up the guitar at age nine after hearing Jimi Hendrix on the radio. Technically he is quite the virtuoso and has experience in many different musical styles and always shows his versatility as a musician and guitarist. When Mika’s not playing with some of the most respected rock artists in Denmark, he’s releasing his own material or writing music for TV.
