"Michael McDermott is one of the best songwriters in the world and possibly the greatest undiscovered rock n roll talent of the last 20 years." - Author Stephen King

Michael doesn't have one, but 2 of the Top 10 Records of 2016"—Karen Miller- BBC 
  
"The Best Album I've heard in years"—Mike Morrison- American Roots UK 
  
“Blending poignant observations with captivating imagery, McDermott again cements his status as one of the great songwriters of his generation.”—Roots Music Report 

 “Willow Springs is an album to savour, one to admire and one that salutes the human heart for all its frailties, faults and fervour.”—Lonesome Highway 

  “…today he has recorded the kind of collection that sounds like it will live forever. There is a depth of life that runs through songs like "These Last Few Days," "Half-Empty Kinda Guy," and "What Dreams May Come" that is so rarely heard now it's like they've disappeared.”—Bentley’s Bandstand/ The Morton Report 
  
 “With Dylanesque vocals and writing that can have him following in Loudon Wainwright’s footsteps forever, this is a real contemporary folkie set that hit’s the target and slays all the pretenders.  Hot stuff that acoustic singer/songwriter fans will utterly flip for.”—Midwest Record

Hey La Hey

Michael McDermott

In cart Not available Out of stock

This was recorded in Nashville with Lex Price, who did a masterful job with Roger Montenot and Lij Shaw who engineered the album. Lex put together a ridiculously good band and we knocked this one out in about 2 weeks if my memory serves me correctly. We had originally not recorded "So Am I " as an uptempo tune but rather just had the ballad. I felt that the album was missing that element that was evoked by "So Am I " as a toe tapper. We reassembled the guys, and knocked it out in a few hours. I'm relieved we have it and that it starts the album. The last two songs written just a few days before we started the record were "Hey La Hey" and "Carry Your Cross". Can't imagine this record without those two.

Noise From Words

Michael McDermott

In cart Not available Out of stock

I recorded an entire record in Brian Wilson's studio in Los Angeles, well Santa Monica technically. After finishing it I knew i hadn't made a great record. I went back to Chicago and with Bobby O'Mullan's help we recorded another batch of tunes, pretty stripped down, pretty bare boned and we put the took the best stuff from the LA stuff and the best of the Chicago stuff and put them together. In that in-between period I wrote "Still Ain't Over You Yet" of which Dan Navarro of Lowen and Navarro said , "you HAVE to record that song, it's one of the best songs I've EVER heard " My dear friend Joe Cassidy produced that for me in his house.

Ashes

Michael McDermott

This was recorded in Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago. Dan Petty and Joe Hardy were masterful on this album. Mark Clark was instrumental in helping finish this record. Mike Malinin of the Goo Goo Dolls helped out. Jay Belrose (Beck). This is one of my favorite records. Covers a lot of terrain musically. A few of these songs still find their way into my set list nightly, which says a lot. "Dance With Me" made Stephen King's top downloads of the year for "Entertainment Weekly" and it was put in a movie called "Cherry Crush". In Houston we recorded at Foam Box which is Billy Gibbon's (ZZ TOP) studio. Billy's a funny guy. Took some money off me in a dice game. He has one of Jimi Hendrix's guitars, i saw it ....was pretty cool.
