Phil Mc Dermott

"Now settled in Norway, Dubliner Phil McDermott’s leader recording debut is, on the evidence of this splendid CD, long overdue. Pat Martino is an influence, but McDermott’s confident and mature work here says he’s not beholden to anyone. He has a lovely tone, a sure and fecund melodic sense and the abundant technique to express it." - Irish Times, 16th July 2010.

"Opened with a guitar solo that defined much of the set - abstrusely melodic and gradual in it's evolution towards the group's riff- centric approach" Jazzwise by John Kelman May 2014

I guess you could say I am a creative thinker. Composing music is probably one of the best ways I find for relaxation.

I am not a tech head,although maybe I should be :)

Best wishes
