John Mercer comes from a very musical family. His pianist father and songstress mother encouraged his evident talents from a very early age. He learned the piano from the age of 3 years, then turned his hand to the cello before finally picking up his first guitar which he has since never put down!
His ability was 'recognised' as he won the Daily Telegraph Jazz Competition Award when he was 16 years old and he reached the regional finals of the Young Jazz Musician of Year competition when he was 17 years old, which was televised and hosted by Jools Holland. Jools commented on John's incredible guitar playing by stating "...he is a filthy guitar player who we will hearing lots about in the years to come!"
Session work swiftly followed and John had the privilege to session with Miles Seabrook, who was working with Paul Weller. John has since performed alongside Don Felder, Tony Christie, Hannah Ild, Andy Abraham, Wilson Minds (produced by Chris Potter), and Jools Holland. John has also performed at the Edinburgh Festival, the Manchester Jazz festival and toured across Europe.
