Erin Sax is a product of the ’70s. Through her 2013-released Mercy disc, the singer-songwriter blends country, blues and rock into a uniquely vibrant concoction. Helmed by industry tastemaker and producer Clay Holley (Adele, Amy Winehouse, John Legend), the seven tracks take the listener on a wild journey, going from the rowdy opener “Ridin'” to the sinister closer “Happy,” which, by all accounts, is far from bestowing joy.
“[The story on ‘Mercy’] is no different than the story of my life right now,” she tells NashvilleGab, exclusively, “which is about showing up. It’s who you are and doing the best you can along the way.”
