Michael Martin John Kirkman, was born on the 2nd of August, 1994, into a musical family. Its was clear from the beginning the young boy would have a destiny with music. Having such a rich upbringing in music allowed a musical fire in him to be ignited from the tender age of 6, when he began to create his very own music and take his first tentative steps into the mesmerizing world of sound and emotion. The young Irish/South African, self taught in guitar and piano, moved to Ireland in 2006 with his mother, a gifted musician and music teacher. A lovable and outgoing young man now at 19 years old, Michael enjoys activities such as tennis and when he's not sweeping his school into song and talent shows or composing his own sound, the laid back young man is with his friends or at home writing his lyrics! It is a rare day, that you'll find Michael away from his music, whether it be guitar, piano, vocals or composition.
Michael Kikman is a musician with a varied and open-minded taste of music. While his main root of inspiration comes from the enigmatic artist, Bruno Mars, Michael also draws from the heavier genres of music such as rock and metal, citing bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Black Stone Cherry and Linkin Park as his inspirations in his musical journey. It is now at his approach to manhood that Michael is ready to release his First creation upon the world. His debut album of covers, "Michael and Mars", releases June 2013.
