Born and raised in North Dakota as part of the proud and historic MHA Nation, Mercedes was immersed in music from the time she was a baby and it has turned into her life's passion. Growing up listening to many different genres of music she learned to appreciate it all. Her wide and varied taste in music includes Carrie Underwood, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, John Mayor, Billie Holiday and many others. Her soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics reveal the depth of her awareness into the ups and downs of life. “ I write from a place I think is my soul, sometimes it's like a waterfall and I just can't stop the lyrics, other times it's like I can't find the right words,” says Mercedes.
Being from North Dakota she was taught that if you wanted something life changing it doesn’t come without hard work. And like the weather of North Dakota she knows that not every day of your life will be sunny and nice. Mercedes is well versed in her ancestry, being that she is from Native American, French, and English descent.
Mercedes just completed her debut album in Nashville and shot two music videos that are set for a Fall 2015 release. Get ready world, Mercedes is coming.....
