Merkley has performed over a thousand shows from the streets of Paris to venues through out Europe and across the United States. He has released nine albums with a variety of groups which include the song writing duo Merkley & Morgan, his high octane Bluegrass and Country Blues globetrotting band The Crooners, and the swampy blues rock trio of Digger Jones.
His most recent solo album, Momentos, was recorded in the early hours of the morning at the Homer Center for the Arts, a Baptist church-turned 400 seat theater. The bare acoustics of the empty theater proved the perfect setting for the intimate solo recordings of Merkley's blend of Americana, Folk, and Blues music.
In addition to an extensive career of recording and touring, Merkley has composed and produced an extensive catalog of original music for TV and has songs featured in several independent films.
In 2008, he created a number of original compositions for HBO's critically acclaimed series, 'Generation Kill' and has since collaborated with Free Man Music and fellow Old Boy artists to compose custom original music for Cinemax, HBO Latino, and Max Latino.
Merkley is currently performing solo, as well as with Merkley & Morgan, The Crooners, and Digger Jones in the New York area. He is also in the process of converting a school bus into an eco-minded tour bus for touring and recording...visit the bus page at Old Boy Records or connect on Twitter to follow the progress.
