Shane Mickelsen is an active composer, arranger, conductor, and teacher. His compositional style has its roots in his love of the classics from Bach to Brahms, whose rich harmonies he fuses with New Age styles to create emotive modern orchestral music.


He holds a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Utah State and a Master's of Music degree in Music Composition from the University of Utah. Shane also spent some time as a Ph.D. student in Music Composition at the University of Utah before deciding to focus more time into a career of writing commercial music.


In addition to these popular styles, Shane continues to write for classical music circles as a 21st-century composer touching on Free Style Atonality, Serialism, Atonal Impressionism, and Electro-Acoustic Compositions.His arrangements and compositions have been performed internationally and at the White House for the President of the United States. 

Shane's composing career began when his mother began training him in music theory at age 12. It took flight when at age 17 he was commissioned by the School of Music at Utah State University to compose an opera for its Opera Theatre Program. Shane then composed, rehearsed, music directed, and conducted the premier performances of "The Wolf and the Seven Kids" to great local acclaim.

Shane is currently busy writing orchestrations, arrangements, transcriptions, and original music for various artists including The Piano Guys, Paul Cardall, and other private clientele. He serves as Music Director of the Lyceum Concert Orchestra at American Heritage School in American Fork , Utah, and happily works as private voice and music composition teacher.

Music Track recorded at Stone Angel Music Studios in Salt Lake City, Utah by Trevor Price Producer: Trevor Price Associate Producer: Paul Cardall String and Vocal Arrangements by Shane Mickelsen ( Video Recorded in Howth, Ireland Videographer and Editor: Elias Jessop Custom guitar by Stonebridge Guitars Fingerstyle Guitar Player Camille Nelson is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist. Her music is fun and fresh, offering feel-good beats and moving melodies that any audience can easily relate to. Her pop/rock/folk style, which was influenced by artists including U2 and Alanis Morissette, evolved to her current style of percussive guitar elements integrated with violin and ethereal vocals, which has marked her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille’s first album, First Words, was released in 2009 and was engineered and produced by Nashville producer, Giles Reaves, for the independent label Dimmi Records. Reaves is currently working with Camille recording her fingerstyle work. Much of Camille’s music relates to her extensive world travel. She speaks German and Italian and has been to over 60 countries—gaining multicultural experiences that have strongly influenced her song-writing. She has lived around the world during and after earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Utah and a doctorate degree from Gonzaga University. She is now a college professor teaching MBA courses in management, communication, and leadership. Camille Nelson has worked with various fingerstyle guitar players including Andy Mckee, Billy McLaughlin, Antoine Dufour, Stephen Bennett, and Kaki King. She was deeply inspired by works by Michael Hedges and in particular, Andy Mckee's "Drifting" and Kaki King’s “Playing with Pink Noise,” whose pieces both feature percussive elements that Camille also integrates into her compositions. She also incorporates and layers violin and vocal tracks into her songs.. As Camille Nelson's guitar teacher, Kaki King helped Camille develop and master her guitar skills while encouraging Camille to continue working on more original compositions establishing her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille Nelson has performed all around the United States and various parts of the world. She completed a tour around Ireland where she performed in several venues displaying her fingerstyle guitar work and original compositions. She has also performed in a variety of venues around Europe where she has earned praise as a fingerstyle guitar player and pop/rock singer. Camille Nelson is also a well-rounded athlete that has earned praise as a competitive runner and triathlete having run over 15 marathons, including the Boston Marathon, Great Wall Marathon, and the Antarctica Marathon. Born and raised in Salt Lake, Camille is the youngest of six similarly musical children. She was strongly influenced by her father, a violist, and her mother, a professional opera singer. Camille continues to make music while she teaches to help further her goal of motivating and touching people. With Camille's work in music as well as in academia, Camille's dream is to use her Ph.D in communication and her music skills to impact people through her creativity and music as she has been deeply impacted by the music and people that have had a profound impact on her life.
