Michael Van London (born March 12, 1977) is an American singer and songwriter. He is best known for his musical contribution to Chris Colfer film Struck By Lightning. His musical contribution has resulted in a highly praised solo album.
Van London was born in Rota, Spain, the son of a Naval Ofiicer. His family moved back to the United States and he was raised in Estey, Michigan. He started playing drums at age 9 and guitar in his late teens. His first work was "tape".
Michael Van London has honed his skills "on both sides of the ocean and inbetween them" but has made his home in Los Angeles where he has fronted his band "The Bombs" (featured on MTV's Paris Hilton My New BBF with the song "Revolution/Revelation) and the "The Black Beverly Heels" while constantly recording and releasing material under his own name. His music has been featured on MTV MTV Movie Awards 2011 with his band "The Black Beverly Heels", made officially available in Rock Band( Song : "Dark Beat"- The Black Beverly Heels), and been spotlighted in Spotify's "Artist of the Week". In November 2012 he was also in the running for the Oscars "Best Original Song in a Film" for his work in Chris Colfer’s 2012 debut film Struck By Lightning, where he had a cameo appearance as the janitor. Van London’s song ‘"Feel Love," has more drive and punch than many of its competitors. It's a pop-rock tune that's tough instead of sugary.’
In 2006 Van London wrote, sang and produced his debut album "Fortunes of Misfortunes”. Van London’s second album ‘American Blood and Guts’ was released early 2013.
Van London is working on a new album for 2014 and a European tour.
