With the new year upon us, we wanted to take a moment to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who has continued supporting our music through the years, and especially in 2016. It was a really exciting year for us, playing at some of our favorite venues, and getting to perform on evenings headlined by the likes of Willie Nelson, Steven Tyler, Bonnie Raitt, and more. We split bills with some of our local favorites this year, which included Have Gun Will Travel, Ed Woltil & The Loaded Question, Joshua Reilly, and many more Tampa Bay Area icons. In short, it's been a great year of solid shows, growth, and support from you; Our fans.
We were thrilled to end the year on a high note with such a great turn out to see us perform with Kristopher James and Will Erickson at The Hideaway Cafe' in St.Petersburg–– The best listening room in Florida. They put on a great show, and you, our friends, family, and fans, were a great audience.
So, what does 2017 hold for Mercy McCoy?
- Our second full length studio release is slated to hit shelves, airwaves, and streaming platforms this Summer. We'll start releasing some teasers and begin debuting some new tunes at shows this spring.
- A continually expanding list of shows which we are hoping will include Chicago, New Orleans, New York, as well as some continued growth with our favorite venues around our home towns.
- Early 2017 shows include us opening one of the evenings that Van Morrison tours through Tampa Bay (1/18), A featured songwriter showcase, and hopefully a few festivals that we'll announce soon as well.
Happy New Year, Thank You, and We Love You!
Stef, Collin, Eddie, Justin, Ed, Dan, and Steve
