Martha has been a huge fan since 1995!  Michael's story is compelling: Surviving early fame, drugs, alcohol addiction and the unpredictable winds of the music business. Now five years sober, his talent is undeniable:  Michael McDermott once seemed to have it all. "It came fast and easy," he says. "I was the ‘new Dylan.'" In his early 20s, McDermott was signed with a major label and was a media darling (e.g., MTV, Rolling Stone, New York Times, CNN,. etc.). He seemed destined for a lightning-fast ride to the top. Instead, his career became a train wreck. Missteps and failures followed. Soon it was gone. He bounced around to eight different labels. "Records came out and didn't connect," he says. "I became disillusioned. It was a fast shot to the top and then a long way down, and it was hard." For nearly 20 years, McDermott buried himself in drugs and alcohol. He surveys the toll his addiction took on his personal and professional life with remarkable candor. "I burned a lot of bridges and screwed things up pretty bad," he says. "I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that it was just short of suicide by cop." Even in the depths of hell, McDermott had his talent as a songwriter and a singer. He credits his wife, Heather Lynne Horton, and their young daughter, Rain, for finally pulling him through. Something had to change, he says. "I'm so grateful I turned things around. It sounds cheesy, but I'm grateful for every day now. I try to lead a good life, and I'm making up for lost time. I've re-dedicated myself to making music I can be proud of." -verbiage borrowed from Art Bowman/ Bowman House Concert Series
