Michael along with Ronan Keating, Stephen Gately, Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch were chosen from hundreds of hopefuls and Boyzone was formed under the watchful eye of manager Louis Walsh. They had a meteoric rise to fame and have sold more than 10 millions albums since 1993. Boyzone also completed sell out tours all over the world and scored five number one records. Mikey has also been responsible for writing/co-writing many of Boyzone’s chart topping songs. He has always had a passion for music producing and songwriting and feels most at ease in his own home studio, Avalon.

Mikey’s other passions include acting and to date he has appeared on RTÉ’s Hollywood Trials, and has acted in two feature films, “Hey Mr. DJ”, with Mike Reid and “Man On the Run” with Ben Kingsley.
