VC Pines aka Jack Mercer is totally immersed in a well of alternative soul, poetry and punk performance. Alongside 7 piece band, The Violet Collective, VC Pines delivers deep organ drones and trills to provide the dark underbelly for this gritty alt-soul avenue, sugar coated by seventies-esque horns.

Breakout single ‘Garden Of The Year’, quickly found its way onto the BBC Radio 6 Music playlist, and subsequent single ‘Bones’, which was lauded by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders – and later added to the station’s playlist as their BBC Introducing Track of the Week in December ‘19. He also recorded a live session for BBC Introducing at the legendary Maida Vale late last year.
