Put a guitar into Michael Fix's hands and the emotional possibilities of music are suddenly released. This remarkable composer and musician has the power to create myriad sensory experiences through his music - it captures and conveys emotions, experiences and images with ease.

And they are unforgettable. Over the past 20 years, he's released ten albums, together with several singles and EPs, and has established himself as one of Australia's finest guitarists and composers, performing at festivals across Australia, Europe, Asia, and writing evocative music for television, film and documentaries.

He's also won numerous awards for his music, including three Golden Guitars, and, as a Maton guitar endorsee (with his own signature model guitar), his guitar workshops are in high demand all over Australia and internationally.

In recent years Michael's reputation has grown rapidly. He receives regular invitations to perform at festivals and concerts throughout the world.

Michael began performing in his home town of Wollongong at the age of 12, and in his early twenties moved to Sydney, where he was discovered by the legendary Tommy Emmanuel. Emmanuel became a mentor to the young guitarist and spent several years teaching and working with him.

Michael's credentials include acclaimed Sydney band Hat Trick, which he joined in 1985. Hat Trick specialised in eclectic versions of classical and folk pieces, and this music has played a major role in the development of Michael's own musical style.
