Mostly derived from the several reviews, articles both in print and on the web:
Blues, indie, classic rock, all coexisting as one in the passion-, soul-driven four-piece band Mergence — a band that will not only draw you in, but keep you on your toes and soles, while you sway with every note.
Compared to the likes of The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, it is undeniable that Mergence's distinctive trait is the passion and soul infused in the performance of each track.
The bands meditative lyrics are as raw as its sound, threading themes of life, love, sex and death. Their tracks evoke a strong reaction from their devout, diverse following, from young to old and from all walks of life. With an earthy, catchy sound, Mergence is as real as it gets. Their live shows and performances are an unequivocal match to the quality of their tracks and album — because they're recorded mostly live, too — packaged into a lustfully smooth sound, collaboratively and effortlessly produced by the band's diverse members, including vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Adam Bruce, Yod on guitar, Brandon Shupe on bass and Jason Roedl rounding out the rhythm section on the drums.
Huckleberry is an americana band based in Tempe, Arizona. Since forming in 2011, the six-piece band have played throughout the valley and released their debut album Fine Highway January 2013.
Huckleberry mixes alt country twang, ragtime swing, jazz, Hawaiian and rock to form a sound that you can dance to, drink to, clean your room to, make out to, whatever butters your biscuit.
Often compared to the likes of Wilco, Harry Nilsson and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Huckleberry blends the new with the old to create unique desert narratives and barroom ballads.
They are going out on a west coast tour this summer and are currently writing new material for a follow up album to be recorded in the fall of 2013.
