Singer/Songwriter. As a songwriter, Michael is working with hit writers in Central Europe and the US. He has placed songs with top signed acts, and has material released worldwide. He's also the singer in "Outbox", who are currently recording their debut album, after scoring a top 40 in Scotland.

Biography

After starting out the traditional way, in smokey pubs and bars, to a crowd of 6 or 7, usually yelling out for another rendition of "Sweet Home Alabama", I was spotted by a management company and went on to tour nationally with my band. We made several TV appearances, had a large fan base and even had birthday presents sent to our management by some rather more "loyal" fans. We never quite hit the big time, but suffice to say it set things up nicely for a future in music.

Since then, as a performer, I formed "Outbox". Working with great musicians, we managed a top 40 in Scotland, worldwide airplay, some very big gigs and radio interviews and we even managed to meet the bosses of a Scorsese flick to negotiate the use of two of our tracks!

As a songwriter, I've worked with some fantastic singers and songwriters. Recently I've placed some tracks with signed artists in New York, Switzerland and Central Europe.

I also work with Mahjong Music in the dance field, and our most recent project audioair is doing great, with worldwide airplay and rave reviews. www.myspace.com/audioair

That's the story so far, but the real best selling novel type story begins now...
As an aside, Michael produces and presents a successful UK radio show aiming to help ‘break’ new artists. He has produced acoustic sessions with Stereophonics, Gabriella Cilmi, Scouting For Girls, Kate Nash, The Goo Goo Dolls, Paolo Nutini, The Zutons and Hard-Fi, amongst others.

Lyrics

The Science In Me - Outbox

Written By: Michael Macdermid

THE SCIENCE IN ME

In the dawning of the day,
When there's nothing left to say,
When the lights have almost faded,
And you're left there feeling jaded,
But you won't forget the signs of chemistry

I could stay for a lifetime,
Run through this one night,
If you'd only see,
The science in me,
I would run through the hard line,
Hold on to your cloud nine,
If you'd only see,
The science in me.

If you're left there high and dry,
Don't give up, give yourself, one more try,
When you feel that fortune's faded,
You've done everything buy say it,
When the tears are welling up but you won't cry.

I could stay for a lifetime,
Run through this one night,
If you'd only see,
The science in me,
I would run through the hard line,
Hold on to your cloud nine,
If you'd only see,
The science in me.

Oh the science in me
Oh if you'd only see

When the lights have almost faded,
And you're left there feeling jaded,
But you won't forget the signs of chemistry.

I could stay for a lifetime,
And run through this one night,
If you'd only see....

I could stay for a lifetime,
Run through this one night,
If you'd only see,
The science in me.

I could stay for a lifetime,
And I'd run through this one night,
If you'd only see,
The science in me
