Biography

Modern Merchant is the Brooklyn via Connecticut-based collaborative project of John Parson (vocals/guitar), Jesse Stanford (vocals/guitar), and Sydney Weiss (vocals/drums), with the recent addition of Devon Johnson (synth/bass). New to the scene with an EP and a couple of national tours under their belt, they recently released their game-changing EP, Virtues, to early critical praise. Their sound, much like mountainous terrain, reaches epic, cinematic peaks and ventures down into ethereal, lush ravines. Their duel-vocal setup is a one-two punch of gorgeous melodies that are expertly executed, all supported by fuzzy low-end and a refreshing approach to the drums that is more textural and sparse, resembling that or classical percussion.
