Bio

Eric and Molly Sappington are Mercury. Both born and raised in the Mid-west, they wrote their first song sitting around a campfire on their honeymoon road-trip to Niagra Falls. "The Circus Is Over" from their debut E.P. captures Eric and Molly's ambient folk sound, and foreshadows the current Mercury.

Vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar harmonies (a technique that Eric has dubbed "guitarmonizing") are stand-out features of Mercury's music. These harmonies combine with keyboard, light percussion, and harmonica to produce their unique folk-meets-atmospheric-pop sound. Living just footsteps uphill from the Great Pacific Northwest shoreline greatly influences their creative songwriting.
