Throughout this journey, music has been a constant companion: a best friend, confidant, a really annoying sibling, and at times a tormentor. Here Dermot shows that really it is the songs that choose you, not the other way around.

These are the tracks that have a hold on us because they have become inextricably linked to the most important moments of our lives and spark the memories and stories that shape us. With a wonderful gift for storytelling, Dermot describes with humor and brilliant detail what it was like to grow up a second generation Irishman in 1970s England. The Pope, rebel songs, and Irish dancing were all part of everyday life, along with the usual brand of childhood nostalgia, like endless summers, freshly cut grass, and the occasional dead animal found in a ditch.

Dermots home life was filled with music which was to set the scene for the years ahead. From Irish folk singer Brendan Shines Catch Me If You Can to The Smiths, Elbow, and Dermots hero Bruce Springsteen, in The Soundtrack to My Life Dermot shares with us his musical DNA.
