Biography

Born in Glendale, CA, Brad Mercer was raised in Los Angeles and began his music career at the age of five. Performing at the drop of a hat, it was evident to everyone that Brad was destined to be an entertainer.

At age twelve was writing and composing songs and in Junior High and High School took advantage of his focus on the Performing Arts in addition to his music. Brad organized his first rock band to become active in charity and school fundraising events.

He has honed his many talents, ultimately becoming a fine professional performer, singer/songwriter, recording artist and radio personality. Brad can play just about any instrument that is handed to him, and is best known for his magical work on the guitar. He surprises audiences when he picks up the banjo and plays as though he was born on the Mississippi Delta.

Over the last 30 years Brad has recorded, produced and engineered six albums, toured with his own show throughout the nation focusing on Nevada (Reno/Tahoe, Vegas), as an Impressionist/Comedian in the Comedy Circuit opening for the likes of Jay Leno, George Carlin and Jeff Foxworthy…, in the medias of radio and television doing voice-overs, commercials, host and MC work… and television theme songs including the NBC television series Walking Tall. Then add to all of this his involvement with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the American Heart Association charity events… and you realize Brad’s experience takes him to many different levels of professionalism.

While on Rock 105 radio in Jacksonville, Florida, he wrote and produced the recording and music video for the single, "A Fighting Chance." Because of the song and video’s popularity and tremendous financial success, Brad was able to collect thousands of dollars for the local food bank to feed their many thousands in need.

Now, back on the radio at 106.9 The Eagle he is able to entertain the Coachella Valley once again Monday thru Friday afternoons from 2 - 7PM. Thus, The Brad Mercer Band was born.

Lyrics

Playing With My Head

Written By: Brad Mitchell-Mercer

WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE ROOM
YOU GET ME HIGH
YOU TURN MY HEAD AROUND
I TOUCH THE SKY

A THOUGHT OF PLEASURE
SEEMS TO CROSS MY MIND
OUR LOVE IS STRONG
BUT STILL ANOTHER KIND

THIS FEELING LINGERS ON
I WANT YOU MORE
I TOUCH YOU WITH MY EYES
I CAN’T IGNORE

THIS PLACE SEEMS DOWN TO EARTH
I WONDER IF IT’S WORTH IT TO STAY
HEY, HEY, HEY

CHORUS
PLAYING WITH MY HEAD
YOU KEEP ON TEASING ME
PLAYING WITH MY HEAD
IS THIS MY DESTINY
SEEMS A WASTE TO UP AND SAY GOODBYE
PLAYING WITH MY HEAD
IS THIS A LIE
