Singer. Songwriter. Michael Kirkpatrick is a modern day minstrel residing in Colorado. His voice has been described as “deep, earnest, swoony and powerful”. Original Americana, Rock and Folk combine with Michael’s rich baritone to define his theatrical presentation—imagine a Cat Stevens-Darrell Scott-David Bowie hybrid. Performing over 250 dates a year on guitars, mandolins and voice, Michael brings it all to the stage: sweat, sensuality, tears, and sometimes: blood.
Michael has been named "Best Male Singer-Songwriter" by the Fort Collins Musicians Association four years in a row (2013-2016), his 2013 album KEY TO MY CAGE was awarded "Best Colorado Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album of 2013" by The Colorado Sound Fan Poll. In 2014, he was crowned Telluride Troubadour and his 2015 release HONEY RIDER earned a spot in the Colorado Sounds Top 50 albums of 2015. In 2017, Michael will release his 3rd Solo album LITTLE MUSE and The Holler!’s WILDWOOD. Aside from performing as a solo artist, you can catch Michael on stage with The Good Time Travelers, his Folkadelic Rock band The Holler!, Uptown Toodeloo String Band, Blue Canyon Ritual and Littlest Birds.
