"Mercer Plays Tsunami Benefit!"

Chris Clay - Feb 6 2005

Pop rock vocalist Linda Mercer performs at a Tsunami relief concert this Sunday in Mississauga.
Linda Mercer & her Gruvrok Band hit the stage at the Fregata Restaurant, 1900 Dundas St E.
Tickets cost $10-$15.
Call 905 848-0973.
The night begins at 7pm and all money goes to the Red Cross.
Mercer, a Mississauga resident, was well known in the Ottawa Valley area for her work with the Blue Lion Band before moving to the GTA last year.
At Sunday's concert, she'll be joined by Shelby Goldstein on lead guitar and drummer Jim Clark.
The band, who play a mixture of covers and originals, cite such acts as Steppenwolf, Hole and Alannah Myles as influences.
The band is currently promoting their soon-to-be-released album, a 10 track CD entitled 'Ten-to-Eight'.
Included on the album is a favorite of mine called 'Stay With Me' which has a Latin flavored feel.
Mercer describes the album's sound as a mix between The Cowboy Junkies and Courtney Love's alt-grunge act Hole; especially on a song like 'Hard!'
'Typical Canadian melodies with a slightly alternative edge,' said Mercer with a chuckle. - Mississauga News (TorStar Newspaper Group)

Feeling a bit camera shy


Linda Mercer's music is described by fans as hauntingly beautiful and full of danceable riffs that are catchy and radio friendly.
Linda grew up in the Ottawa Valley Ontario Canada but presently resides/works in Toronto Ontario Canada.
Linda draws her musical inspirations from a varied genetic heritage; her mother was of Scottish/French Canadian ancestry, her father of American/Newfoundland stock and generally speaking her father's people were of Irish descent.
Her youth was spent rollicking in the fields/streams/trees and farming communities in which she was raised as in a kind of female Huckleberry Finn existence and later she flitted from the bar to the church singing hymns, celtic ditties, country laments, jongleur songs, folk music & jigs for the many festivals/church suppers/holiday celebrations that came her way to perform in across Canada.
Linda Mercer enjoys her audience and they she!
