I'm a composer and write in all genres. In addition to this EPK, see dailyjam.net for more. My number one interest is to write for other performers and for soundtracks. I am looking for representation in particular for my song "Here To Stay" for placement on an adult contemporary collection.

Biography

I started out as a prog metal vocalist, guitarist, and bassist, then got into classical guitar, then recording engineering and drumming. Now I write, perform and record music in my home studio, including publishing a daily composition at dailyjam.net.

You've Got To Move

Written By: Michael McCormick

you've got to move
you've got to move
your lines are smooth
sweet sweat emotion
your body rocks in time

dance in the spray
you take me away
sing sweet seduction
feeling the beat of your heart in the heat
your hands in the air
twisting without a care
take my breath away

I feel the groove
I feel the groove
its pulse is smooth
pounding inside of you

we've got to move
we've got to move
our lines are smooth
sweet sweat and motion
our bodies rock in time

dance in the spray it takes us away
swing sweet seduction
feeling the beat of your heart in the heat
your hands in your hair
sparkling everywhere
take my breath away

Here To Stay

Written By: Michael McCormick

now I lay down beside you
in the fields of early fall
and the sun that shines upon us
it warms the trumpet's call

I know where your heart lies
I know your lullabies
I know just how to hold you
to make your spirit rise

darling now I meet you
now the working day is done
and all the children gather
to greet the setting sun

I know where your heart lies
I know your lullabies
I know just how to hold you
to make your spirit rise

now I'm not one to dwell
on the passing of the green
now I have my chance
to relive yesterday
now I'm finally laid to rest
beside you here to stay

I know where your heart lies
I know your lullabies
I know just how to hold you
to make your spirit rise

Black Gold

I am war
an endless scream
power and rage in my hands
I will not be stopped here

seas will change
and earth will move
save your tears
until there's nothing left

I am blood
a flowing fire
burning all that I see
everywhere and everything will I be

seas will change
and earth will move
save your tears
until there's nothing left

"Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange."

I have come
to take your life
you've no choice but to give
all around you dying while I live

seas have changed
and earth has moved
cry your tears
now there's nothing left
