Craig Mercer’s newest project The Will Be Gones represents a coming of age for the singer/ songwriter – represented in songs of heartache, happiness, friendship, and a deep love of the east coast. With subtle hints of rock set to a backdrop of Americana and alt-country, the upcoming album tells the story of an artist at a turning point in both life and in music – and offers a stark contrast from his work to date as the frontman for jam/rock acts The Jimmy Swift Band and Scientists of Sound.
It's been a long time in the making, and finally the debut single from Craig Mercer's solo project The Will BE Gones is being released on May 29th. Check the website for a preview of the track, and stay tuned for the debut album from The Will Be Gones - coming soon!
