Grammy Nominated Producer & Songwriter
Michael Fatkin is an Australian born producer / songwriter with a penchant for translating the
soul of storytelling into the realm of pop music.
At the age of 24 he has already worked with Australian artists such as Jessica Mauboy, Stan Walker, Tina Arena together with profile writers such as DNA Songs and Sarah Aarons - he has also worked internationally with Sam Fischer, Rozzi, Tabitha Nauser and Royal and The Serpent.
Starting out with humble roots, Michael discovered his love of songwriting growing up around Christian music legends, Joel Houston, Michael Guy Chislett and Marty Sampson whom he later had the honour of working closely with on the Hillsong Young & Free and Hillsong United albums. He has seen major success within the Christian Music category
producing Grammy-nominated Christian Contemporary Album of the Year, “Youth Revival” (2017) and multiple #1 Christian Hot AC hits in the USA also co-producing Hillsong UNITED “Relentless (Young & Free Remix)” from “The White Album (Remix Project)” – which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/ Electronic chart.
His talents were quickly discovered when Michael formed a partnership with Diana Torossian from DTME Talent Management in 2015 – after a couple of years of making his presence known with the major labels and working with signed Australian artists including Cyrus, Judah Kelly, Joe Moore, and The McClymonts, Michael came to the attention of the amazing team at Universal Music Publishing which resulted in him signing with them as hybrid deal with Hayden Bell of The Kennel in 2018. Michael will be travelling to Sweden and the US in 2018 to explore further writing opportunities for world domination!!!!
