Mike Olsen, born 1985 in Brøndby, Denmark, is the artist behind Danheim. He changed his creative focus to music at the turn of the century. He has been actively composing since. He is a Nordic / viking folk musician. Many of his lyrics center around Gernanic gods, goddesses, and legends. He contributed to the music heard in the 6th season of the History Channel’s TV show Vikings. Georgia Hirst, one of the show’s actors raved about his music on social media propelling his career further.
The name Danheim is a fusion of the words Danmark (Dan) and the old Norse word for home heim. Together, they declare Danmark / Denmark is the artist’s home. It is clear from the music he produces that the name reflects his spirit, that Denmark is the home of not only his heart but his muse.
