"Mikael Wiehe", (born April 10, 1946 in Stockholm) is a Swedish singer and composer.

Wiehe grew up in Malmö, in the Scania region of southern Sweden, giving him his noticeable Scanian accent. He is a leftist folk musician, dealing with what he considers right and wrong in the society from the eyes of the proletariat, but he also writes personal, non-political songs.

Wiehe was one of the lead singers and the leading songwriter of Hoola Bandoola Band in the 1970's. After the split of the group in 1975, he was the leader of various other bands before becoming a solo artist in the beginning of the 1980's.
