Marinated together in early 2009 originally as the 5 member band like blending choice seasoned spices in a culinary treasure to create rock music for the world. Although, initially each member helms from different corners of the west region of the United States. They met and formed the band while living in Seattle, WA after a consistent time of artistically crossing paths. The underlining unspoken message the men want to say with their music is: “From the basement, to all the listening and visual audiences everywhere this is for you”.
“AM” (AnnAMercury) after one year running with each other in a tour de force mode as a five member rock warrior machine. They are currently revamped and reloaded to comprise the ultimate four strong members that include Brady singing lead vocals, Jeff playing drums, Jim strumming the bass, with guitars being laced by Pete. All four share a mutual inner passion for music and a quiet determination to be as good as they possibly can be. The music that the band chooses to create is original in nature with a savory rock-n-roll flavor. And each member contributes by drawing on their own musical backgrounds in a combination of ways to make the songs happen.
After only several months in the making of the band they finished recording their 5 song EP as of late fall 09' at the legendary renown London Bridge Studio with engineer/producer Geoff Ott of notable mention who has worked with many artists to name a few such as: (3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains). The EP was officially released in mid-November 09' attracting lots of attention by many listeners, radio and fans worldwide! AnnAMercury, has recently just returned to London Bridge Studio November 10' to record two new singles and begin preparation for their full album in 2011 which is scheduled for summer release with much anticipated fanfare debut.

The 1st song I listened to was "Shine a Light". I gladly played it on the air and it received a great response from my listeners. So much I played it again & again. Then came along my personal favorite,"Girls with Shotguns"!.This song blew me away. I was soon to learn that top to bottom this EP absolutely rocks. This band has a fun, high energy vibe with great musicianship and vocals. The songwriting is superb. I liked their music so much I had them live on the air as featured guests and they were a ton of fun. Brace yourselves for the next great band to come out of Seattle. They have arrived and they are: AnnAMercury!”
