Merrill News

New Songs Coming!

We know it's been a quiet Summer for Merrill. The guys decided to take some time to enjoy the sunshine and spend some time with their families and work on their respective side projects. But rest assured that new music is being written and the guys will be out performing again this fall. We'll keep you posted!

New Songs & Calender Update

After being on the road for the first two months of summer, Merrill has been writing up a storm as of late, working hard to complete the songs that will make up the band's third studio album. The guys will also be returning to the west coast in early September for a run of shows in California and Oregon. Don't forget you can catch Chris every Saturday at The National Underground in Nashville, Tennessee. For more info, check out the tour calendar, or email info@merrillmusic.com

New Nashville Shows Added

You can catch Chris' three solo performances in April at The National Underground, as well as the first Nashville performance by Merrill, at Tequila Cowboy, April 17th. For more info, click on the TOUR tab. See you soon!

BIG NEWS: GOING COUNTRY!

Well folks, I have a confession to make: I’ve gone country. Yup, back to my roots. That is, I’m going to be planting some new roots…..in Nashville, Tennessee! My guitar and I are headed to the capitol of country music come the New Year to live the life.

With this awesome news comes the not-so-awesome; Elijah Johnson will be leaving Merrill at the beginning of the year. He’ll be staying in Portland to keep the rock alive. So don’t worry, you’ll still get to see him performing around town. In the meantime, be sure to check out our calendar for your chance to catch all of our west coast shows before I head off!

It’s bittersweet my friends, by I can only guarantee lots of Merrill greatness in the future!
