Emily Mercer is a Manchester based singer-songwriter and pianist. With deep vocals, rich chords, punchy hooks and unexpected turns, her piano-driven songs sit somewhere between Jazz, Folk and something more theatrical. Her lyrical songs explore both social and personal issues, all the while retaining a playful cynicism. Emily released her debut EP ‘Transparency’ in January 2019 and is currently working on her next release whilst gigging around the country.
“I’ve wanted to get involved with Brighter Sound for ages, having heard lots of great things about the work they do helping musicians. I love doing what I do but sometimes lack direction and the mentoring scheme seems like a great way to get focused. I’m hoping to gain insight into areas of music where my experience is lacking – the more business/marketing side of things, and hope that this will help to give my next release a push. I look forward to working with a mentor to get valuable advice and guidance and to being part of this great community.“
