Biography

THE MERCY BEAT is a three man band consisting of Rob Honey, Grant Somerville, and Jermaine Firgo. Formed in spring of '09 with founding members Rob Honey and Grant Somerville and their passion and desire to play music... FORMATION: the band started to mold when former bassist Ryan Shields joined the band a few months in. All musically inclined the band fed of each others idea's and inspirations which blended their music into one unique sound. Fall 2009 the band entered the studio to release a 4 song demo to support. Quickly getting recognized for their unique indie rock sound they grew a loyal fan base. In spring of 2010 the band released a 2 song demo which landed them on indie radio and open the doors to newer, bigger venues. In fall of 2010 singer and lead guitarist Rob met Jermaine Firgo, a local MC aching to show fans he can spit over anything.

With much praise and enjoyment the band added GRILLA in March 2011. May 2011 Ryan Shields left the band due to musical difference. Rob, Grant, and Jermaine wish him luck! The band looks at this as an opportunity to show everyone what they got with no strings attached.
