Nick Mery will release his new album, Gentlemen Streets on April 26, 2013 along with a bonus EP called The Blue Dog EP. You can check out a press release after the jump.
Nick Mery announced today the release of “Gentlemen Streets” on Friday April 26, 2013. The electronic-pop album not only broadens his musical stylings in the hip-hop and R&B genres, but showcases his work as a producer as well. Having completely written, recorded, and performed every song on the album, “Gentlemen Streets” features 10 all new tracks for Mery’s fans to indulge in. Alongside “Gentlemen Streets,” Mery will be also releasing a free bonus album entitled “The Blue Dog EP.” The album showcases Mery’s best in the folk/acoustic music vein, balancing the feel of live instruments with sparse electronic soundscapes. Both records will be released via Mery’s label Plaidcore Records, “Gentlemen Streets” will be available exclusively on iTunes, and “The Blue Dog EP” will be available through his BandCamp page on April 26, 2013.
On the new album, Mery shares, “Gentlemen Streets is written from the perspective of being 27. The feel of the music is supposed to be mature, confident. The tone of the record is intended to reflect someone who isn’t afraid of growing older, becoming wiser, and maybe even forgiving themselves for past mistakes. This record is about confidence.”
Since 2008, 27-year-old San Antonio native Nick Mery’s work has been met with critical acclaim. As an independent artist, Mery has released seven albums [two through iTunes, five available for free download]. Nationally, Mery has licensed six songs to CBS, charted in the Top 25 Acoustic Artists on Garageband.com, and has been nominated twice for “Best Original Song” in the Feel Good Film Festival. Mery has received multiple write-ups for his performances and work around the San Antonio area as well, along with winning the award for “Best Local EP” in 2011 by the San Antonio Current [for his side project The Great ’85].
On stage, Mery has performed with Neko Case, Blue October, Kevin Devine, and Augustana to name a few. In addition to his time performing and creating music, Mery also has a love of broadcast – having previously hosted ‘Live and Local with The Mighty Merykid’ and ‘Good Job Texas’ for KRTU 91.7 FM. Currently, Mery hosts the internet television series ‘Miranda TV’, and is the creator of the bog ‘Plaidcore’ – which operates as the home for his record label.
