Mercer & Johnson
Mercer & Johnson
Mercer and Johnson are Brock Johnson and s.mercer.The band uses a mix of traditional string-band instrumentation on their recordings, to craft songs that vary in origin from traditional style ballads and up tempo numbers, to songs influenced by singer-songwriters and modern indie rock.

Live, the two feature mostly mandolin and bass in a stomping shouting manner that people find enjoyable, yet puzzling. The puzzle is the mandolin, which they often mistake for a wide variety of other instruments.
