rings is the name of the place where I took refuge and had to confront a lot of things.Recorded at his home in the country and fan-funded, Willow Springs finds McDermott behind the boards as producer for the first time with longtime producer and collaborator, Lex Price doing the mix. Having enlisted a stellar support group of musicians -- including multi-instrumentalist, Price; guitarist, Will Kimbrough; keyboard player, John Deaderick and McDermotts wife, Heather Horton on backing vocals - McDermott found himself able to craft the unassuming yet cutting sound he envisioned. Indeed, the results bear out the fact that Willow Springs is the most honest and expressive album of McDermotts extraordinary 25 year career. Songs such as, These Last Few Days, Getaway Car, Half Empty Kinda Guy, One Minus One and the title track, convey all at once, a sound thats both reflective and confessional - borne by stark emotion and a tattered, battered delivery thats both sobering and sublime. McDermott remains more determined than ever, and Willow Springs is the result. My enthusiasm is only matched by my desire to continue to evolve as an artist he insists.Accolades and kudos can be accumulated one minute and quickly dissipate the next. After all, the music biz is a fickle beast and it doesnt matter how much you pleased the masses last year, last month or even last week, but rather, about what you offer today.
