Michael O Dwyer is an Irish singer, songwriter, composer, multi-faceted instrumentalist and actor from Carrick on Suir Co Tipperary. He is part-time studying for a BA in Popular Music at the prestigious Cork School of Music, majoring in Keyboards.

Michael first discovered music when he started playing the Cornet in the Carrick on Suir Brass band at the age of seven, graduating to guitar by the time he turned twelve. He quickly fell in love with the instrument and has been studying and honing his guitar skills ever since; he has also learned to play Saxophone, Drums, Bass guitar and Piano.

Michael has a wealth of musical theater behind him; making his stage debut at fifteen in the role of Joseph in a youth production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He later joined his hometown’s musical society and has been cast in the roles of Pish Tush Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado; Jesus in Godspell as well as leading roles in several pantomime productions. As a student at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) in Limerick, Ireland, Michael joined the Mary I Drama & Arts Society and played the role of Danny Zuko in their production of Grease. He also joined The Cecillian Musical Society where he played the role of Riff in their production of West Side Story and was named by AIMS (Association of Irish Musical Societies) as ‘someone to watch for the future’. Michael has also been cast in the role of Curly in a Limerick Musical Society production of Oklahoma.

During his college years Michael worked part-time with Shannon Heritage as part of the musical entertainment team at Knappogue Castle Banquet, playing the part of the Earl’s Butler. He has also won several musical competitions and awards including 1st prize in MIC’s ‘Original Song Contest’ with his own song entitled ‘The Difference Between Love And Fun’.

Michael has played with several bands both in Limerick and Cork and is currently lead singer with The Love Junkies wedding band. He is passionate about music and is currently working on his debut EP that he hopes to complete in August. Michael came to the attention of Celtic Thunder’s producer Sharon Browne and Musical Director David Munro in 2016. They invited him to audition for them, and asked him to join Celtic Thunder as a cast member in the North American and Canada Legacy Tour in Fall 2016.

Michael has left Celtic Thunder to work on his dream as a Solo Artist.
