Mer's Music Showcase
Mer's Music Showcase
MER invites Chicago's finest artists to partake in a "songwriters in the round" session. This stripped down format gives front men/women a chance to step back from their bands and deliver their stories and music as they were originally contrived. Catch this unique vibe and enjoy the sincere delivery of Chicago's most dedicated songwriters!
Two Filipinos
This Chicago, IL based duo is a culmination of a combined, 20+ year of classical training and 30+ year of national touring. Singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist, MER, teams up with violinist, Jason Vinluan, to deliver intricate musicality coupled with pop sensibility within an engaging, high energy, live performance!

The duo defined their musical brand and built a fanbase organically by way of MER's Music Showcase, a weekly 'songwriters in the round' residency at the historic Cubby Bear located directly across the street from Wrigley Field during the spring and summer months of 2016. The first single, "Who I Was" was produced by Sigurdur Birkis (John Mayer, Will Hoge) and was released in Oct 2016. Recording continues with plans of releasing an EP in the summer of 2017.

Two Filipinos made their public debut in Nov 2016 with tour dates in Los Angeles, Seattle, Nashville, and Chicago. The duo quickly gained support through the non-profit, Kollaboration.org and gained significant media exposure with interviews & live tapings with Seattle Music Insider and WFLF Fox 32's Good Day Chicago.

The duo continues to focus on recording the upcoming EP and strengthening their live performances with touring efforts focused on the college market, Asian-American community, and live music festivals all over the mid-west. Be sure to catch Two Filipinos live in a city near you before they embark on their Asia tour in 2018!
