“…music you can dance to in a nightclub on a Saturday night or be saved by in a revival tent on Sunday morning.” — Third Coast Music (Austin, TX)
The Mercy Brothers were formed in 2011 by veteran musicians Kevin Sekhani, Mark Meaux and Garland Theriot out of Lafayette, Louisiana, and have been tearing up the South Louisiana club and festival circuit ever since. Blending the spiritual fervor of an old-time tent revival with the rambunctious feel of a rural roadhouse, the Mercy Brothers combine the best elements of celestial and honky-tonk heaven. This unique holy hubbub hybrid, and a reputation for electrifying live shows that inspire impassioned sing-alongs, has won the band a loyal – dare we say – devout following.
Holy Ghost Power! is the band’s debut album, containing 11 original compositions from the Sekhani-Meaux songwriting team. Their Americana sound is a timeless and energetic brew, kicked up with a dose of roots-rock that moves both the spirit and the body. Like those famous Louisiana cousins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley and Jimmy Swaggart – the Mercy Brothers are a little rock & roll, a little country and a lot of Holy Spirit.
