VANCOUVER’S KIERAN MERCER TO RELEASE DEBUT EP HELP ME HELP YOU FEBRUARY 26
MERCER TO JOIN MARIANAS TRENCH FOR 18-DATE CROSS-CANADA TOUR
SOPHOMORE SINGLE ‘HEY STAY’ AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 8
CANADIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
FEBRUARY 3, 2016 (Vancouver, BC) – Shooting out of the gate last year with his debut single ‘Bang Bang,’ Vancouver artist Kieran Mercer is getting ready to release his debut EP Help Me Help You on 604 RecordsFebruary 26. A six-track exploration of his trials through love and heartache, this release drops just in time to accompany Mercer on the road as he heads across Canada with label mate Marianas Trench.
Previously the front man of celebrated Vancouver group Jackie Valentine and having shared the stage with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Lights, Mercer decided to pursue the journey of establishing a solo career. Leaving behind his small town roots of White Rock, BC, Mercer headed to L.A. to work with renowned producer Jon Levine (One Direction, Andy Grammer, Selena Gomez, Rachel Platten), and together they created a distinctive pop sound that earns Mercer a spot amongst some of the most celebrated acts in the genre.
An honest account of Mercer’s young foray into the affairs of the heart, Help Me Help You is not all heartbreak and sorrow. The album’s upbeat rhythm and pop-infused melodies give listeners the optimism of a young heart not done fighting. Debuting last year with ‘Bang Bang,’ a story of the all too real consequences of betrayal, Mercer began growing a following that was thirsty for more. With his upcoming single ‘Hey Stay’ set for release on February 8, fans will get a tease of the new music ahead of the EP.
Mercer will be celebrating his fresh release as he heads across Canada with fellow 604 Records act Marianas Trench. His first national arena tour, Mercer will be performing 18 dates spanning from Ontario all the way to his home of Vancouver, BC for his final show at the Pacific Coliseum.
