Kieran Mercer, previous frontman of British Columbia pop/rock band Jackie Valentine has set off onto a solo career.
He is signed with 604 Records, and has recently released a new single, “Real Thing” to iTunes. Along with that, he has released a video for it on youtube. So be sure to give it a listen and then go buy it!
The song shows that Kieran pulls from different musical genres, and has various influences when song writing. “Real Thing” is an upbeat, fun pop song with a slight disco feel in the music. If you are on the lookout for a great song to play at your parties this summer, I think you may have just found it.
