My Pet Dragon consists of husband-wife duo Todd Michaelsen (Granville, NY) & Reena Shah (Livingston, NJ).  Since their early beginnings in Brooklyn NY, MPD has consistently been hailed by critics and fans alike for their songwriting & exciting live show.  Their melodic and sometimes anthemic songs are uniquely presented using a variety of looping instruments, vocals, & beats.  You may also know them from their work on “Sita Sings the Blues”, the award-winning animated feature film by Nina Paley. Todd composed the score and original songs for the film and Reena performed the speaking role of Sita and was roto-scoped dancing & singing in the 'Agni Pariksha" sequence. MPD’s song "Moonshine" was featured in Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine's National TV Commercial on the Discovery Channel. Todd has collaborated with Anoushka Shankar & Karsh Kale on their release, "Breathing Under Water", and KKs releases, "Broken English" and "Cinema". Reena has appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien & in the Universal Pictures feature, The Guru, where she was the Assistant Choreographer.
