From out of West Town Chicago, Michael Hoyt is a drummer specializing in danceable grooves and layered rhythms. He approaches music development with a keen eye for detail and a focus on enhancing emotional delivery given through vocal and instrument melodies.
Michael started out as a progressive metal musician but has moved towards pop/rock for the challenge of developing memorable patterns within a 15 – 30 sec window . He feels at home playing anything from chill/introspective to energetic/frenetic moods.
His most recent project is supporting Suri’s live music venture following her EP launch for As I am since July 2017 . Prior to that, his previous band Amber Flight released their EP A Brighter Star in 2015.
Not limited to drumming, Michael’s love for electronic music and synthesizers has allowed him to embark on songwriting to share in collaborations with other musicians.
Michael is available to collaborate on projects and works best with with writers, producers, and musicians who love to write/rehearse/record/playout throughout the week.
