THIRSTY MERC are one of Australia’s finest live acts. Such a claim is rarely upheld but even the most hardened media agree: Thirsty Merc’s live shows demonstrate some of the best musicianship Australia has to offer. They have sold over 200,000 albums, scored a #1 iTunes single with ’20 Good Reasons’ and been nominated for a handful of ARIA & APRA awards. With three critically acclaimed studio albums under their belt , this year sees the ‘Merc’ back in action with the release of their Acoustic Anniversary Album comprised of acoustic interpretations of fan favourites like ‘Someday Someday’, ‘In The Summertime’, and ‘Mousetrap Heart’.
These new recordings showcase the band’s exemplary level of musicianship and show-off their backgrounds as accomplished jazz musicians. At this year’s Caloundra Festival in October Thirsty Merc will bring their full electric show and after completing two successful tours earlier this year the boys are well warmed up, full of energy and ready to hit the stage.
