Recognized by Billboard Magazine as “extraordinary…a voice tailor-made to travel far and wide in the world of adult pop,” two-time Chicago After Dark Award winner Tom Michael performs across the country to critical acclaim.

Appearing on such concert stages as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, and Metropolitan Room; Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre, Empire Room, Davenport’s, Millennium Park Pritzker Stage, and Park West; The Royal Room in Palm Beach; and Guild Hall in East Hampton, Tom has delighted audiences with his warm, expressive style.


His three solo CD’s, “Let Me Be Your Home,” “Written in the Stars,” and “Sailing On,” have received international critical acclaim and radio play, and were named “# 1 CD of the Year ” by such publications as Show Business Weekly Magazine, After Dark Chicago, and WDVR-FM Radio. His recordings have also earned positions on the album spotlight page of Billboard Magazine, and received praise from Playbill, The Advocate, and Chicago’s #1 Radio Station, WGN.


Tom regularly performs with his musical partner Beckie Menzie. In what has been called a “musical marriage,” Menzie & Michael have become one of the nation’s most in-demand duos. With their unique blend of whimsy, nostalgia and imaginative twists on jazz standards, contemporary pop, and show tunes, their concerts and duo CD “Better Two-gether” have won audience and critical acclaim nationwide. They have been described by the Houston Chronicle as “a divine intervention of musical genius,” and NY Cabaret Scenes Magazine as “sizzling,” “pure brilliance,” and “cabaret at its best!”
