"One of the best songwriters in the world"
Michael McDermott’s brand of rock and roll brims with the kind of well-honed style and wisdom that can only come from a career on the road and a pedigree in the studio. Effortlessly blending natural folk sensibility, pop hooks, and honest rock, Michael's music is as much for the outcast as the congregation. It’s an exploration of the dark corners of life’s journey and it resonates middle class truths through the passionate filter of a kid that grew up on Chicago’s Irish South Side. If you are a fan of Springsteen, Van Morrison, John Steinbeck, Patti Smith, Michael McDermott's inspirational rock is in your wheelhouse, waiting late night with a guitar, spare smokes and stories of the American heart.
