Portrait of Merrily James
Merrily grew up in Seattle where she learned to sing by touring with the Total Experience Gospel Choir. At age 17 she was picked up by “Showtime at the Apollo” and had the audience singing along with her to Aretha Franklin on the national TV series hosted by Sinbad. Merrily has performed for Linda Ronstadt and Smokey Robinson and has shared the stage with Bobby McFerrin, Phillip Bailey (Earth, Wind, & Fire), Don Was, and Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power). She was a finalist with the New York Song Circle and was the Indie Music Suggestion on Women of Substance Radio.
