Michael McDermott possesses one of those classic rock voices and isn't afraid to use it. Drawing on influences from Bob Dylan to Van Morrison, he's a dysfunctional prophet who spins stories so brilliantly through his songs that they're old friends by the end of the first hearing. American Country Music Magazine commented that he's "the kind of raconteur writer who is so connected with himself that he can reach right through the speakers and punch you in the heart".
Michael's live performances have also received praise from a dedicated fan-base and famous admirers like author Stephen King, who shared that "Michael McDermott is the greatest undiscovered rock n roll talent of the last 20 years" King also used Michael's lyrics in two books of his acclaimed novels - Insomnia and Rose Madder.

As good as his albums are (and they're very, very good), Steve positively owns a crowd when he's on stage, where the proverbial rubber hits the road. His shows are the stuff of legend – no two are alike – and can take an unsuspecting audience from laughter to tears and back again in the space of a single song. He is a master of improvisational songwriting and works without a set list to be free to react instantly to the mood of a room. It's also worth mentioning that he is an astonishing guitar player on top of everything else. He is quite possibly the most talented, and engaging, solo performer on this planet. That's what 250+ shows a year on three continents will do for you.
