PinPoint Mercy is a San Francisco-based alternative rock band born from the combined talents of Tommy Merry, Eli Dale, Gregg Dean and Geoff Piper. During the better half of 2008, PPM took a brief hiatus, but PPM has returned with a new member and a new sound! We thank all of you for you patience through these quiet times and for your continued support and good energy.
PPM is proud to announce our brand new guitarist Tommy Merry! Tommy brings incredible musical talent to the band. His amazing chops, versatile songwriting style and strong vocal ability add a dimension to PinPoint Mercy that has undeniably taken the band to a new level.
See what Tim Erdmann of Vivendi Universal says about Tommy: "For the last decade Tommy Merry has been tearing up the fretboard with his passionate and high-energy instrumental music, sharing the stage with the likes of Metallica, Joe Satriani, Journey, Montrose, Y&T;, Testament, Tony MacAlpine and Michael Schenker. His superb technique is in the tradition of Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson and his original music runs the full gamut, from raging metal to sublime acoustic soundscapes."
Since forming, PPM has taken their unique brand of rock from the gritty, but hallowed halls, of a San Francisco rehearsal studio to the stages of some of SF's most revered venues. Driving hard rock grooves and exceptional vocal quality give this guitar-driven rock band an appeal that unites generations of music fans. Performing both as headliners and as support for several notable nationally touring bands at such venues as Bottom of the Hill, The Red Devil Lounge, The RockIt Room, and the famed Great American Music Hall, PinPoint Mercy has gained momentum by creating a buzz and establishing a solid grassroots following. PPM is currently performing all over Northern California in support of their album.
