The Mercy Alliance is a Washington DC based band led by songwriter Joe Rathbone specializing in emotive, melodic indie rock with an aggressive rhythm section. The band features longtime drummer David Lopez, whose lyrical playing provides a great foil for Rathbone’s raw baritone and gritty guitar playing.
The upcoming album “Some Kind of Beautiful Story” is due to be released Sep 9th 2014 in the US on Beverly Martel Music. Recorded in producer Thomas Johansen’s studio in VA, the record features drummer Steve Bowman (ex Counting Crows) and bassist Brad Jones as well as string work from longtime associate David Henry.
