Michael Hirst is a songwriter and musician in Punta Gorda, Florida.

Be sure to see him perform live next time you’re in town!

Here’s a little bit of information from Michael’s website.

For those of you who are not familiar with my style, I guess I would say it is a blend of influences; James Taylor, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne. I wouldn’t say that I sound like any of them, but my style has been influenced by them and that acoustic genre.

I wouldn’t want to sing anything that I would have to apologize to the Lord or to you for….so in a nutshell I don’t do the trashy songs…there is plenty to sing about…so many great songs, without going in that direction. Also, many of my venues are family oriented, fine dining establishments. You won’t find yourself covering the kids ears or having to explain “what the man meant when he said”…

I am available for all kinds of parties ( birthday, graduation, Christmas, Lanai parties ) wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, smaller receptions, conferences, retreats, fund raisers, street festivals, fairs, just about anywhere good music is needed and appreciated!

“Michael creates a laid back, relaxing atmosphere with his music. A bit of Croce, a bit of Taylor with a little Gordon Lightfoot all rolled into one. Last week was Michael’s ‘debut’ and we quickly booked him for more after we heard him play! He had a wide range of song choices with something for everyone and we all had a great time.”
