Music is a gift…
It calms… it excites… it challenges… it ignites…
Put a concept into any musical style or genre and it will attract an audience that will hear whatever message, story, sentiment, religious or political view that’s being conveyed… so with this gift we must use much wisdom.
I felt the stirring of this gift from an early age. It was nurtured in a very supportive environment and encouraged to be developed. As a kid I remember strumming anything I could lay my hands on (yes, even tennis racquets) until I got my first ‘real’ guitar at the age of 13.
And so the journey began...
Combining this gift with the privilege of growing up in an atmosphere of faith, hope and love meant that music was the perfect vehicle to express a message that now forms the foundation of who I am today.
Songwriting came next – lyrics, melodies, chords, accompaniment, arrangements; sometimes coming all at once and sometimes laboured over for days…weeks… months…
Music Production, exploring other Instruments and Recording quickly followed as a means to capture the ‘moments’ which thus birthed a passion for all things technical and the never ending challenge to balance raw organic creativity with clinical technology.
Music is my life. It’s with me every waking moment like a faithful companion. I know I was created to play, sing, write and share the joy that music brings to me. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to use this small piece of cyber real estate to share my musical journey with you…
Happy Clients – What They’re Saying…
Thank you for the fantastic job you did at our party. Everyone absolutely raved about you and we so appreciated you delivering so many great tunes in the time allotted. I wish it could have all gone on longer – you made it a fabulous night!
If we ever need someone again to entertain at an event, you will be the first person I think of and we are more than happy to refer you to friends and family as well.
Thanks again Michael – you are truly talented!!
We hired Michael for a joint 50th birthday party at Broadbeach recently. He was an absolute professional from start to finish. All interactions with him the week before were very pleasant and he clearly outlined his role, what he would be doing for us, the price and the timing for the evening. On the night, he arrived on time and given we were a little late starting with the music due to late arrivals and speeches, he then sang and played non stop until the party ended (even though he was entitled to breaks). The crowd absolutely loved him, as we did.
I could not recommend Michael highly enough – so talented and working with him was seamless!
Michael Hickey performed at my husband’s surprise 60th and his music was an integral part of the success of the party! In the lead up to the party all my special requests were met and he took the time to come and inspect the venue to be sure of his set up on the night. He judged the mood of the party and varied the music accordingly and played for 4 hours with only a short break. Later in the evening, we had great fun dancing to a variety of classic and contemporary hit songs.
It is my pleasure to recommend Michael; not only is he a great musician, he is polite, reliable, professional and a true gentleman.
Our best wishes and thanks to you Michael!
