Michael Learns to Rock (also known as MLTR) are a Danish pop-soft rock band that performs songs in English. Formed in 1988, the band has sold over 10 million records worldwide, mainly in Asia, and in addition, another 5 million or more paid downloads for their single Take Me To Your Heart. They have produced seven studio albums as well as one live and several greatest hits albums. The band has attributed its success in Asia to a clean-living image and singing in English as a second language, and the fact that their lyrics are relatively easy to learn and sing.
According to their record label releases, their sound is "the perfect balance of that has been instrumental in forming the compelling sound of the band", though the lead singer and song writer Jascha Richter disagrees with this, maintaining that the music defies geographical categorization.
