MERRIN incorporates the goodness of high energy rock with soul and passion. Loved by many, they have played support to iconic acts Fuel, P.O.D and Seether, headlining their own tours around the country and performing to big crowds at various events throughout their home town of Wellington, New Zealand.


2017 saw two singles released and the release of their debut album “1” which entered the NZ charts and remained there for three weeks. Merrin have taken time out from live gigs in the later part of 2018 to focus on writing and getting ready for 2019. 

With an edge defined by a distinctive guitar sound driven by Karl Wootton (Rhythm Guitar) and Angelo Pantelakis (Lead Guitar), they are joined by Richard Maxwell Jnr (Drums) and Logan Wood (Bass), the powerful rhythm section, to create life and pump substance into the heartbeat of this rock focused band.Some of their influences include, but are certainly not limited to Eddie Van Halen, Billy Sheehan, and a whole bunch of musical whanau along the way
