Mercy John – Don’t Leave Me Now

 

As with many musicians, Mercy John’s music has been heavily influenced by the place in which he grew up. Both his childhood experiences and his countryside roots have made him the person he is today. Unsurprisingly, there are local flavours that can be identified within the body of his work. However, despite his Dutch roots, many of Mercy John’s songs also contain elements that are reminiscent of the works of Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and Ryan Adams. So how is it that the music of Mercy John has been influenced by these big names?

 

In addition to writing lyrics in his hometown on the outskirts of a small village, Mercy John has spent some time writing songs in Nashville, Tennessee. ‘Maybe the place where I grew up is good soil for Dutch Americana’, says John, born on the day that The Netherlands was hit by the toughest blizzard in the history of the country. Having been raised in the middle of the Dutch no-man’s-land, he gives a glimpse of his formative years: ‘my entire childhood I watched out over the fields and played in the woods nearby. I was raised, rather protected, far from the big world outside. With a lot of time and space to play music, by the age of twelve, I was already rehearsing with a band in one of the barns on our property.’

 

The remote and protected environment of Mercy John’s childhood experiences instilled within him a sense of wanderlust – a dream of engaging with the unknown and unfamiliar, a yearning for adventure in the world beyond his immediate horizon. Yet now that he is older, he has come to realize that home is where the heart is, and that the world is perhaps too complex to ever fully comprehend.

 

On his new album ‘This Ain’t New York’, released by Butler Records in February 2017, Mercy John describes his world of fears, sadness, happiness, and love. Mercy John recorded the album with his band and producer Gabriël Peeters in Uncle Gabe’s Sound Studio. In the first week after the album was released ‘This Ain’t New York’ has collected some really great reviews and was selected as CD Of The Week on Dutch national radio NPO Radio 1.

 

His first album, Five More Days & A Matter of Somewhere (released as John Henry) received positive reviews and was applauded by critics within the genre. Willem Jongeneelen (BN De stem, OOR) called it ‘A heck of an Americana album from Dutch soil’. Following the release of this album, Mercy John played several venues across The Netherlands. Highlights from the album were aired on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 3FM.

Elina Nechayeva – La Forza – Estonia

 

Elina Nechayeva was born in 1991 and graduated from the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre in 2016 where she studied classical singing. As a child, she dreamed of becoming an astronaut, flying between the stars and planets. It is this same drive that inspired La Forza.

 

On the Eurovision stage, Elina will fly between the stars to spread her message that love heals and lifts us. The melody of La Forza was written especially for her voice and shining personality.

 

Elina is a hardworking professional and aims to perform opera on the largest stages in the world. She takes very good care of her powerful instrument, her voice, and loves to begin her mornings with a yoga session and a jog. She tries to walk whenever and wherever she can and instead of coffee, uses dark chocolate as her secret energizer. Perhaps the most important part of her health regiment is that she always stays happy and positive!

 

When she has a moment to relax Elina likes to indulge her passion for animation. She is a big fan of all the classic Disney Princess cartoons and has a love for Japanese Anime – especially those by Hayao Miyazaki.

 

A huge classical music fan, she counts Mozart and Tchaikovsky among her favourite composers. She enjoys the clear structure of Mozart’s music and the passion and rich soul of Tchaikovsky. This shows also the two sides of her vivid personality – playful, yet formidable.

 

Elina’s family is of Estonian, Russian and Chuvash descent. It is from this diversity that she developed her talent for languages fluently speaking Estonian, Russian, English, French and Italian.

 

Less than three months after the 100th anniversary of Estonian Independence, Elina is hoping to give her beloved homeland another reason to be proud and celebrate.

Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs – Black Noon Dawn

 

Based out of Denver, CO, Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs are making waves in the Colorado music scene. Rouch, a self-proclaimed southpaw whiskey-loving Virginian,  self-released his first full-length solo album, “The Beautiful and the Damned” in March 2016 and now his 4-piece alt-country folk group is one of Denver’s fastest up and coming bands, with mentions in Music Connection Magazine, Denver Post, Marquee Magazine, Scene Magazine, and Axs.

 

“We all came together because we love bands like the Avett Brothers, Elephant Revival, The Decemberists, etc. so it made sense for most of us, we do have one Phish-head who loves him some jam bands, but he’s also a classically-trained violinist so it works out. When I first came to Denver I was blown away by the talent here, there are so many amazing musicians, but what really drew me were the songwriters, there’s a whole underground scene of phenomenal songwriters that need to be brought to light, this town isn’t like a Nashville where songwriters are really appreciated and a few of us intend on changing that. The band just wants to make music for people who appreciate songwriting, melody, structure, etc. with a little twang too it, not too much, just enough, I’ve been called Country-Light, might need to trademark that.”

 

“With a smooth delivery, Colorado folk-country band, Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs is a perfect blend of James Taylor and Fleet Foxes”
