New EP, Karate!, Released Today!

I am extremely excited to announce the release of my new EP, Karate!, today! It’s been a while since I have released new music, and I am very proud of the songs on this EP! You can find the album on iTunes, Amazon, etc. I have setup a “pay what you want” model on Bandcamp, you can access this via patrickmerrill.bandcamp.com/releases! I hope you enjoy the music as much as I do!

2016 Updates

The recording of the new untitled EP has been wrapped up! I am beyond excited to get the rest of the loose ends tied up so I can release it!

I will be playing in Hollywood at Amplyfi March 25th! Be sure to get tickets in advance, this is a small venue and likely to sell out!

Entering the Studio

After an extended period of time following my 2013 record, I am excited to announce my return to the recording studio this month to track two brand new tracks. Over the past two years I have played a number of shows and written and re-written dozens of songs in an attempt to determine the direction I wanted to take my new music. I am extremely excited to share this music with everyone and hope you enjoy the songs as much as I do.

Summertime Update

If you haven’t been following or attending any of the shows I have been doing this year, you may not be fully aware that I am back at writing my next release. I am 2-3 solid songs in so far. I don’t foresee a return to the all-acoustic format of “A Road”. It’s a refreshing excitement towards crafting these songs with a bigger picture in mind. I can’t wait to share the new music.

Updates & Beyond

The first month of 2014 is coming to a close and I thought it would be a perfect time to post an update for the people trolling the internet. I’ve come off four shows this month, and have one more performance in San Francisco before we close out January. The album is out in full force and units have been selling. I am writing more, with every intent of recording a follow up EP before the end of the year with a full band.

“A Road” Released 11/26/2013

Official announcement: My debut album, “A Road”, will be released November 26th!

In October of last year I scrapped every song I had been working on and started writing what would become this album. I’ve never worked harder on anything in my life, and never been so proud of anything I’ve done. This must be what parents feel like shipping their kids off to college! To everyone who supported me in this endeavor, thank you! In the past 13 months my life has changed more than I could ever imagine and I’ve never been happier, as a result, this album is more important to me than I ever thought it could be. This album is a true reflection of a years journey and I truly hope you enjoy it.

The album will be available on all major digital outlets. Buy 1, 5, or even 100 copies!

Just crossed off another thing on my bucket list. You can see my live at UC Santa Barbara in January performing the album and maybe some new music I’ve been working on too.
