The 9:13 Buzz with Scott Mervis

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Mervis! In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott. Click the title to hear the song! Diego Garcia, "Start with the End": He only sounds like a Nickelodeon character. Rather, he's an Argentinian singer from Detroit who's made this nice, chill folk-rock record called "Paradise." This song, the opening track, starts like Rusted Root's "Martyr," and moves into a different direction from there. Butch Walker, "I've Been Waiting for This": When he wasn't producing major hits for Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy, this former frontman for Marvelous 3 was working on his latest EP, which allows him to indulge his own power-pop and pop-rock talents. This song begins with a reminiscence of his father, who died two months ago.
