With a mood that mirrors her home city of New Orleans, Merci Raines makes music with a mysterious allure and a sharp bite. She credits her "witch pop" sound to the inspiration she has found in the Deep South and it’s many eccentric corners and characters. Merci's identifiable sound is characterized by her deep smoky vocals and unapologetic lyrics that inspire her listeners to transform their pain into their power. Her unique storytelling writing style is inspired by various art forms, from cabaret to film noir. Merci has plans to release her debut album in 2020.
