Born in Flint Michigan, guitar slinger, Matt "The Axxmann"
MacDermaid has always known what it means to live and love music.
Matt started playing guitar at ten years old. Within a very short time, he formed his own band "The Inevitable's" and when the lineup was complete the band played its first gig. Though he thought they were playing rock n roll, Matt "the axxmann" later would understand that playing music from The Yardbirds, The Animals and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers was really his introduction into the blues. "I still remember the rush of that very first show. Playing rock and roll of the sixties was a gas, but it didn't take long before I new that soulful bluesy guitar sound was what I love."

The Axxmann has played a few different styles of music in his 50 years, but he has always known the Blues was deep in his up-bringing, going back to running the streets of Flint, Michigan looking for girls and trouble, guitar always in hand. Matt even played in a real Punk band in the early 70's called CRANK but the Blues was and is still where his heart is!

After his short tenure as one of the founding members of Argentucky Blues and The Motor City Injectors, The Axxmann released his first cd titled Bea B and the Axxmann, Born With The Blues (M Mac Blue Music Publishing) with an incredible vocalist, Bea Bahr.

The Axxmann has just released his new cd No Fancy Cover. He is also writing music for TV and Movies with Crazy Boy, working with The Motor City Injectors on a power punch live show. The Axxmann is also still writing and recording with other musicians.

All The Axxmann's guitar tracks on this site (except live ones) were recorded in his studio, if you have a need for a guitar track please contact him at....ihaveguitarwilltravel@gmail.com. He can send them out in many formats.
