A lot has changed for Peter McDermott since the release of his debut EP, "One Big Picture Show". What started out as a side project for McDermott is now the thing he is known for.
Peter McDermott first gained attention as the drummer and creative force behind Long Island’s garage rock band, Vitality. Vitality developed a reputation around the New York music scene and drew audiences to prominent NY venues, like Webster Hall On the verge of their first tour, the band disbanded and Peter was forced to start from scratch.
Peter began playing intimate acoustic sets at coffee shops and bars. His bare bones performances and pop writing style caught the ear of acclaimed record producer Rob Freeman (Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship). With the help of Freeman, McDermott recorded his first solo recording, "One Big Picture Show". For the record, Peter recruited several musicians and friends to help with recording of the album. These collaborators eventually evolved into the backing band that performs with him today.
For their newest release, "Live at Audio Pilot", the band which is comprised of Tom Bauer, Rich Page, Emanuel Lewis, and Andrew Hannan joined Peter to record a set of old hits, a new song, and a classic cover.
“Live at Audio Pilot Studio” EP is now available on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music. The studio session can be viewed on Youtube and at www.petermcdermottmusic.com.
