Biography

After the release of his well-received record, the orchestral indie-pop sounds of Window Rolled Down, Jeff Merchant went back into the studio and emerged with a unique, fully produced fifteen-song recording called City Makes No Sound. It’s a melodically lush, bright and dark, richly bold, eclectic pop feast that you won’t easily forget.

With nearly a CD and a half of material fitting on one disc, the songs range in style and structure but share a common alternative pop aesthetic of melodically dense arrangements, musically intricate parts, loops and effects, thought provoking lyrics and smart production. The musicianship is top notch thanks to an array of talented musicians that played on it. And Michael Rozon again utilizes his special production and engineering wizardry that is apparent from the first listen on.

City Makes No Sound tells diverse stories of city life that are amusing, sad and uplifting, sometimes lonely, with both hope and despair - trying to get to the essence of things. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered with a full spectrum of sound in mind – deep, full bass with bright harmonies and a rich, balanced center.

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Jeff Merchant had an extensive involvement in the local scene before launching a solo career. He created the alternative songwriter showcase “Broken Mic,” which held a regular residency at Spaceland, a popular club in Silverlake. Merchant has performed in numerous groups, including with the nationally renowned Stew (of Passing Strange).
