When did you become a music lover and what does music bring to your life?
Matt: KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park is what started my musical journey. The correlation between the music and pageantry caught my eyes and ears. Music is a window into the songwriter's soul and a great song will always touch a nerve and that’s what Mercy Shine does...touch a nerve.
Jason: I've been a music lover since I can remember. Growing up my mom was always playing music in the car & house. I knew I wanted to be an entertainer when I saw Tracy Lawrence perform in VA.
What can we expect to see at one of your LIVE shows?
When you come to a Mercy Shine show, expect to see energy, excitement & have a good time.
Who has been your greatest influence?
Matt: My greatest influence is Jesus. My other influences are many.
Jason: My greatest influence is Jesus. My other influences are my family.
What would you tell your younger self if you could?
Matt: If I could tell younger me anything, it would be to never do what I've done.
Jason: If I could tell younger me anything, it would be to always do your best.
