Michael McDermott plays catchy, rootsy folk-rock music. The Chicago native, after troubles with various bands, McDermott chose the solo route. After watching and performing with many folksingers, he began to incorporate Irish music into his act. Frequent dates at a pub called Harrington's led to local word of mouth and a contract with SBK. In 1991, McDermott released his debut, '620 W. Surf,' and by 1993, 'Gethsemane' showed him moving farther away from the coffeehouse and closer to rock. A self-titled effort appeared in 1996. Four years of touring and writing produced the 2000 release 'Last Chance Lounge.' The singer/songwriter has recently released a new album entitled 'Ashes/2004.' Singer-songwriter-pianist-producer Gentry Bronson has been called folk troubadour, punk rock poet, captivating pianist, pop craftsman, and dazzling showman, and over the years Gentry has been compared to Tori Amos, Ryan Adams, Tom Waits, Billy Joel, David Gray and Nick Cave. But throughout his career, Gentry has continued to be an artist who doesn't fit any category.
