Northland’s Global Viral sensation, Merv Pinny, heads to Whitianga Saturday, 25 November, with his full band, on his North Island Tour.
Northland’s global chart-topping songwriter and talented musician, Merv Pinny has been noticed the world over. He has captured the imagination of millions, charting across the globe including America, Canada, Brazil, Europe, South Africa, Norway, Ukraine and the Middle East. He had his first global hit by making the Amazon world music charts for his song, ‘Amazing’, hitting the #1 spot in February 2021. After organically building a huge following from around the world, (with more than 80 million FB followers and more than 30 million music streams across multiple platforms), Merv Pinny is hitting the road on tour with his full Band through November and December!
Merv left school at 15, worked on a dairy farm and began playing in a band six nights a week. This started a music career, and this odd mix of farming and music has become a unique aspect of Merv’s music and persona, both Merv as an artist and Merv as a farmer.
Now with the focus brought back to the music, and with self-penned and hugely successful releases such as; OB Can You Hear The Children Cry, My Freedom My Rights, Amazing, Bourbon Baby, I and Wipe Out, to name a few, from his large original repertoire, Pinny and band are out on the road! With a sound ranging from rock to sweet ballads along with a twist of modern country, audiences will be presented with a wide ranging and exciting live show, with something for everyone!
Pinny is also over the moon to have been recently nominated as a semi-finalist, picked out from more 6,000 entries worldwide for the latest Nashville International Songwriting competition. Two of his songs have been accepted, one in the Rock category, Little Demons and one in the Blues category called, I.
These nominations couldn’t come at a better time with new music due for release later this year.
The Dark to Light Tour will celebrate his numerous original hits as well as the two new singles, released in October and November, Miss La De Da and How to Say Goodbye, both off his forthcoming album due for release early in 2024.
Experience Merv Pinny live in concert, with his unique style of song, performance, great musicianship, and a voice you will remember! Fronting a talented line-up of musicians for a full-on rock show and with some smaller acoustic performances!
