Michael King One True North Music





Hi Everyone!

I’ve had so many questions from people about why I do what I do and how I came to do it I thought I would just take the time now and tell you how and why I started One True North.

You should know from the start that this was not easy for me. Starting a new band was the furthest thing from my mind. I had a good job and I also played rock & roll in many of the night clubs around Columbus. You may have seen me in those days. I really enjoyed what I did. But things were about to change.

One day I came home from work and turned on the news:
It was the Columbine High School tragedy and just as I turned it on the newscaster said, “He had a gun to a girl’s head and asked her if she was a Christian. She replied, “Yes I am.“ and he pulled the trigger.

At that moment I became sick. My own two children were the same age as this girl. I wondered what direction they were heading. Was I leading them or just watching them grow?

I knew enough about the Bible to know that Peter walked with Jesus before then denying him three times, yet this little fourteen- year-old said “YES, I AM” with a gun to her head. I wanted to know more about the God she believed in. That was the start of my journey.

If you don’t think it’s possible to add power to her testimony and sacrifice, then just consider what was written on her back-pack that lay just a few feet from her dead body: “I WANT MY LIFE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.”

I had to stop and think about the dirrection of my life and whether it was making a difference… What was I doing with my talents, my construction business, and my life? Was I just consuming resources? Taking in everything for me? Whose world is this anyway? And what about the example I was showing my children. It was time for a change. It was time to accept and build a relationship with God.

We chose our name, One True North, because The name in itself, talks about direction and the music is about where that direction comes from. You’re never lost if you know your One True North. We share some amazing stories and messages while we play. If your group or church would like us to share the music or message, just let us know.

Not only can this little girl’s life make a difference, not only can my life make a difference but YOURS CAN, TOO! Use the gifts God has given you to improve this world and the people around you – you never know where it might lead.

Do you think this little girl really died? Maybe in the flesh but not in the Spirit.

Matthew 6:33


Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
