Mike Macdermid on SoundBetter

I am a hit songwriter with 15 worldwide top 20 singles, 3 Billboard #1 singles, over 5 million sales and hit credits in South Korea, Japan and China. As a vocalist, I have had featured vocals on a number 1 US dance single and record from my own studio daily for various major label projects.

Scottish singer/songwriter, currently working with some incredible artists around the world. 2019 saw huge releases in Japan, South Korea and China, including the Christmas double A-Side for Japanese boyband J Soul Brothers. White Wings has already hit #1 on several Japanese charts including daily Oricon and Billboard. K-Pop star Nichkhun (from boyband 2PM) released my song Story Of, hitting #1 in the Japan K-Pop chart on the day of release. K-Pop girl group PurpleBeck's comeback single Dream Line also charted in Korea's top 40 Gaon chart and continues to be promoted around the globe.

In 2018, I hit #1 in China with the song Pull Up by Cai Xukun(蔡徐坤) and the song has been streamed over 100 million times, breaking 7 Chinese Billboard and QQ records in the process. In June 2018 I co-wrote and co-produced Promise You by K-Pop band 100%. It was track 2 on the Summer Night single album, reaching #7 on the Japan Billboard, selling 20,000 copies in the process.

I also co-wrote Stylish by South Korean girl group LOOΠΔ. It featured on their debut LP ++. Within the first 24 hours, the song was in the top 5 of the USA iTunes album charts, also charting in the top 20 iTunes charts of over 30 countries, including the UK, Australia and Japan. It also reached #1 in several iTunes charts including Sweden and Brazil.
