His talent was recognised in 2016 at the Gold Coast Music Festival when he was nominated for young ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and the song ‘The Wild’ also nominated for ‘Song of the Year’.
This humble, musical-poet released his solo debut ‘Untitled #1’ in February which alone has had 240k+ plays on Spotify, had national radio play on Triple J & Double J and was later followed up by the single ‘You Gotta Go’ that reached #2 in the AMRAP Regional charts in May. Merrick then took his debut EP ‘In Colour’ (released May 5) on tour along the East Coast of Australia.
The release of ‘Travellin’ in August is just another example of Merrick’s hard-working traits and passion for a life in the music industry. Merrick promises that there is plenty more up his sleeve, with dates currently being secured for another East-coast tour in November.
