Great news coming with the beginning of the new year! The Merlino Band started the production of the new album, which is planned for release in mid-2018.
Significant changes happened to the band lineup, as two members are not part anymore and new assets have now joined in, including the amazing Catt John on vocals, and Mark Tarlton on Drums. With this lineup, and with a few new prospects being currently interviewed for bass and keys positions, the band is now working on the recordings of the new single "Don't look back". This is a mid-tempo rock ballad, originally inspired by the legendary Diane Warren and her outstanding achievements.
Lastly, we need to note the joining of Erika Mason Reyes as public relations coordinator. With her amazing talent now Merlino is actively seeking an executive producer for the new album.
We wish you a prosperous new year, full of success, love and happiness!
Talk to you soon.

Tonight at 6:04 PM the radio station KALX in Berkeley, CA aired the song Believe. This was my first song on the radio, EVER! I am very proud to have this radio station, which was voted the best radio station in the San Francisco East Bay, adding my song to their programming. KALX is an independent radio station based out of the famous Berkeley's College. Thank you Marshall Stax.

I'm glad to announce that the new album "Immensity" is finally out! I want to thank anyone that in the last two years has been involved in this project. I want to start with my friend Ron Blair that spent lots of hours working on the graphics for the cover. I loved the hours passed in your studio, the most relaxing time of my day! Also thanks to my friend Mark Tarlton. I also enjoy the time spent together talking about music and laughing about it. A big thank you to all the other people that contributed to this project, like Matt Wright of Prairie Sun Studio and Jon Cuniberti of Digital Therapy Lab. Your talent and expertise made a huge difference on the final product. Thank you to my wife Christine that have been putting up (that's for about 10 years!) with music instruments continuously moving around the house as I was looking for the right acoustics for that particular track. I could not have done it without her, supporting and encouraging me in the moments in which i was not believing. A special than you to all of you that have been listening to my music and sending me good feedback on it. I needed that more than anything else in every moment.
It took a long time to finish this album, and it's always like that when you have to finance everything out of your pocket, from recording studios, to engineers, equipment and printing. Now that is done I am full blast into promoting the album, starting from live performances and marketing to radios and distribution companies.
Now like ever before we need your support both moral and material. The single "I Do" is already on sale on iTunes, Amazon and other online stores, and soon the album will be available as well. Do what you can to support our next project, which is already in the production phase. New songs are beeing arranged, including a new single "Tonight" that will be hopefully soon recorded and published.
