The Erin McDermott Band / Press

"Erin McDermott & Associates played at The Mast Farm Inn a few weeks ago and were sublime... to say the least (www.themastfarminn.com/erin-mcdermott). Weeks later and people are still talking about "a great and surprising discovery", "how uplifting", and "how fortunate we were to have been there". When the rest of the world discovers this exceptional songwriter and vocalist, they will be wondering, like Adele, where she has been all their lives and how come nobody told them about this very special young lady. What really comes to mind is Janis Joplin, meets Adele and Alison Krauss at the Farm House for an acoustic set with a few friends. And while those stellar ladies may each be in a league of one, Erin is knockin on that door with boots on. If you have a venue where people come to discover and really listen to the artist, their words, and music, do not hesitate for one second to book Erin & Crew, and I would do it now before you no longer can." ~ Henri Deschamps, The Mast Farm Inn

Henri Deschamps - The Mast Farm Inn

“The main ingredient, though, is McDermott’s rich voice that at times packs enough punch to out-sing all three Dixie Chicks at once. Some of that sass is evident on tracks like “Time to Go,” “Fowler Farm” and the delightful second-chance celebration “Louise.””

“Meet Erin McDermott stepping out with her first solo album, Time to Go. Erin hits the ground in solid stride with Bluegrass heavyweights: Tim O’Brien, Bryan Sutton and Stuart Duncan. The album was produced by Grammy award winning producer, Brent Truitt. Together they deliver an inspired set of originals that are at once new but comfortingly familiar.”

“In my mind, McDermott is a singer-songwriter of the highest order. She takes her craft seriously and is unafraid to dig deep to present nuanced stories and characters. As a result, each song on Time to go stands out beautifully in its own way. Every one is rich enough to enjoy on its own, or as part of the whole record. Each person you meet during the course of Time to go has a real story to tell you in their own words. It’s all Erin’s voice, but her characters breathe on their own, drawing you along from one end of this record to the other.”

“Erin McDermott is well underway with lots of musical fireworks and a beautiful voice, but it's the quality of the songs that make Time To Go such a first-rate album.”

““Erin McDermott writes short stories in song about small town life in Vermont. Her characters come alive in the songs and you get to know these real people by the time the second chorus comes around. With a voice as strong and as uniquely expressive as her lyrics, Erin is a songwriter to watch in the coming years.”..”

Tim O'Brien - Grammy Award Winner Singer/Songwriter

"Erin McDermott and her songs are one in the same. They're both honest, engaging, and immediately likable."

Bryan Sutton - Grammy Award Winner and IBMA Guitarist of the Year

“When I put this record in my player, Erin had my attention from the beginning. Her sweet vocal tone, and engaging lyrics are a pleasure to listen to. The lush sounds, and the spirit of freedom you get from “Time To Go” make this record stay fresh top to bottom. Not to mention the fantastic musicians! Songs like these don’t come around all the time, so sit back and enjoy!”

Andy Hall - The Infamous Stringdusters

“Take a cup each of Tracy Chapman, Joan Armatrading and Macy Gray, put them in a pot, allow them to simmer for any amount of time, sprinkle on a little Sade and it will yield Erin McDermott, a deliciously new "sista voice", a new and rising star”
