Majken Christensen is a Danish singer songwriter who releases her music under her forename Majken. Her debut EP Deronda Hotel was released on November 19th 2013 - a six track EP produced by Jesse Nolan at his home studio in Los Angeles.
Majken’s first love has always been for music and writing and she considers herself mostly a poet and storyteller. Majken also has a background as a professional contemporary dancer who trained dance all throughout her childhood in Copenhagen and she is a visual artist who paints and creates her own film/video art.
Before writing her debut EP Deronda Hotel Majken played percussions for indie pop outfit Tropical Nirvana led by French singer songwriter Antoine Debarge.
The title of her debut EP Deronda Hotel is a homage to the steep winding street in the Hollywood hills Majken called home while curing the broken heart that inspired and produced many of her lyrics.
Majken is currently working on a second EP to be released this summer August 2014.
"these songs are my stories of a troubled heart, falling in love with madness, the search of golden walls, loneliness in the hills of a magical city, haunting wild nature, all tomorrow's dreams, those nights and that sunrise" Bellus Magazine had the chance to meet with Majken for a photo shoot and an acoustic sest of one of her songs...
