Description

Michael McDermott burst onto the scene in his early 20s with his exceptional debut, "620 W. Surf," and subsequently found himself touted as Rock’s Next Big Thing. The missteps and failures that followed, the collapse of an industry that once embraced him as its next sensation, are troubles and travails that either ruin a person completely, or force a change of attitude and staunch determination to gather one’s resolve to not only survive, but overcome. Ten albums in, Michael McDermott does both with "Willow Springs," one of the most honest, daring, and defiant recordings of his career. "This is an album of reckoning, I suppose,” Michael reflects. He went through "a veritable emotional tsunami, and yet somehow I had to navigate through it all. That journey is reflected in these songs. Willow Springs is the name of the place where I took refuge and had to confront a lot of things." Canadian songwriter Heather Horton opens.
