Peter Mercer

Peter Mercer is an 18 year old singer-songwriter from Tunbridge Wells. Despite his young age he has already attracted a lot of industry attention including that of Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger) and up and coming band New City Kings. Furthermore, he has been put on the same bill as artists such as Scouting For Girls, Rebecca Ferguson and The Hoosiers. His music contains elements from a wide range of genres including folk, pop and rock, but it is all performed acoustically with a loop pedal. He takes inspiration from a huge variety of songwriters but is particularly inspired by Ed Sheeran, Tom Fletcher (McFly) and Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and takes lyrical inspiration from artists of all genres, from Macklemore to James Bay. He released his debut EP which was featured nationally on BBC Introducing and is working towards his debut album “Wake Me Up”
