Introducing 

It all started years ago as a little but significant fight for a dream to become reality.  A dream that has placed Merrin in front of artists such as Everclear (US), I Am Giant (NZ) and managed to get Karl and Charlie to the US to connect with some great people like Drew Copeland (Sister Hazel) and Elliot Sloan (Blessid Union of Souls).

“With the radio release of “Mr.Dominant” from April 2016, there is an exhilarating rush in the air right now.  We are looking forward to the release of two singles later this year, so stay tuned kids, Merrin are go!” ~ Karl Wootton (Founder)

“Karl and I have nurtured and grown MERRIN into something we feel is quite special over the years.  We have been through so much on a physical and emotional level, our team are closest mates and we have each others backs, the way it should be” says Charlie.

Like most artists, the work is intense but the results can be

"When we're in the ‘zone’ I feel like there is not only a CONNECTION with our BAND, but with EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the room."

 

- Karl Wootton -

extremely satisfying. Out of the blue in 2015, Merrin were approached and offered help to broaden on something that was thought to be quite unique and special.  

When Merrin were connected with Chicago based "Oh, Hush!", they had no idea what to expect.  “We aren’t really sure who we sound like to be honest, we just love to make music based on how we feel.  "Oh, Hush" have broadened on that immensely” said Karl.  

Merrin are: 

Karl Wootton (Director/Guitarist)

Angelo Pantelakis (Lead Guitarist)

Charlie Phillips (Female Vocalist)

Richard Maxwell Jnr (Drummer)

Logan Wood (Bass Guitarist)
