    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.

    George Gershwin is quoted as saying "Irving Berlin is the greatest songwriter that ever lived" and Broadway choreographer and director Jerome Kern famously said "Irving Berlin has no place in American music - he is American Music".  Born May 11, 1888, Berlin's songwriting career spanned decades and produced some of the most famous songs for some of the most famous performers. Featuring patriotic songs, ragtime swing, famous movie tunes, and of course Broadway classics, we'll be celebrating Berlin's 129th birthday with plenty of song!
