Michiel Jan Hendrik Thompson was born in 1998 in the wonderful town of Oegstgeest. Suburban life suited him very well as a kid as he experienced a very peaceful and loving childhood.
One of the most important people for him growing up was his grandmother who bought him a guitar for his eleventh birthday. In the following years Michiel and his friends were always welcome at her house to write, rehearse and play music.
This is the place where Michiel formed KIEFF in late 2015.
This band of friends started playing a whole lot of shows throughout the Netherlands and Europe and they released a couple of EP's and a self titled album in 2021.
In 2019 Michiel started recording music on his own and released his first solo album: 'Piano Impromptu'. Discovering the easiness and fun of home recording, he soon recorded and released a whole bunch of EP's and albums.
