Blending ethereal, psychedelic folk with melodic ukulele narratives, Sydney has given life to new-age artist on the rise, Merpire.
In 2012, Merpire released a self-titled 7 track EP, capturing attention with vulnerable and honest lyrics that listeners can relate to but find hard to reveal.
In 2014 Merpire released a second EP, Beneath Dark Waves. Her aesthetic combines the typical mood and sound of the ukulele, with warped effects that are unique to the Merpire sound. Like a siren at sea, the artist draws you in with her haunting melodies, honest heart-ache and fantastical stories.
After landing a sync on a show on SBS2, and a spin on Triple J, the song ‘Everyone Will Know’ from Beneath Dark Waves has been on rotation on Triple J Unearthed.
After winning the Telstra Road to Discovery program in December 2015, Merpire is now gearing up for a year of specialised industry mentorship, songwriting, recording and showcases  in Nashville. While she will be busy broadening her creative spectrum, it is safe to say we can expect to see and hear a deeper Merpire.
