FINDINGMERCURY's music is highly electric, emotionally profound, and full of hooks. The band originated in early 2004 when the singer/songwriter/guitarist, Joel Hundley, a native of San Diego, California relocated to Northern California and met his new band mates. First, Joel met Sonny Scroggin of Vacaville, CA. Sonny is a high-energy studio drummer who has drummed in a variety of settings since he was three years old. Next, Joel met Chris White, a former band mate of Sonny's. Chris is from Santa Rosa, CA, and he brings over 12 diverse years of bass playing experience. Finally, Joel, Sonny, and Chris met piano/guitar guru Jay Pittard. Jay was previously a solo guitar and piano artist from Occidental, CA. Together these four musicians have started to make a lasting and positive impression on the world of music and it's fans. Currently, they are touring up and down the west coast where they have been building a local fan base from San Francisco to Portland, Sacramento to Reno, extending to LA and San Diego. One can find this tight-knit band playing noteworthy events such as the San Francisco Bay to Breakers Footstock event-sharing the stage with 'Better than Ezra'-(attendance 60,000+), 2006 & 2007 SF AIDS WALK Main Stage (attendance 10,000+), and 2006 SF CASTRO STREET FAIR Main Stage (attendance 15,000+). They have been a featured local artist on SF radio stations KLLC/Alice Radio 97.3, KSAN/The Bone 107.7 and KFOG/104.5. Recent press features include the San Francisco Examiner, SF Chronicle, ASCAP 'Stepping Out Magazine', TheOwlMag.com September 2006 Band Barometer Featured Artist, and the Fringe Mag. Performing for over 90,000 people and 30+ consecutive weeks on the iChannelMusic.com's Top 10-artist list rounded out 2006 as a success. FINDINGMERCURY is a must see live performance. Their music exudes vulnerability while being emotional and electric. It is a crowd drawing, intensely energetic, and all around entertaining show.
