BIOGRAPHY: Matt Mercado has quite a history of success. Matt Mercado first ripped up the Chicago scene in the early ’90’s with local legends Daisy Chain, leading to a seven figure recording deal with Mercury Records (Kiss, Bon Jovi). The band changed its moniker to Mindbomb and recorded their first CD under the production of Max Norman (Mega Death, Ozzy Osborne). MindBomb went on to tour the US and Europe extensively opening for rock legends such as Kiss and Rob Halford. Mindbomb also gained critical recognition and many major motion picture sound tracks including the classics Cliff Hanger-Sylvester Stalone, and Kalifornia-Brad Pitt. Matt then went on to release two national CD’s with Pivot Man on Mystic Records (Warner Brothers) in 2000 and 2002. Various tracks from both CD’s were heavily featured on MTV’s Real World and Road Rules. In late 2005 Matt released his power metal group Supermercado’s “Scary Baby”. An internationally acclaimed album that garnered Matt the prestigious “Most Under Rated Artist of The last 20 years” in the 20th anniversary issue of Metal Edge Magazine. Supermercado will also be joining Chicago’s own Fall Out Boy, and Rob Zombie in the soon to Be released Sierra Video game “Flat Out III”. “Kinda Sorta” is Matt Mercado’s seventh National Release. With this new album Matt has taken a fresh approach to his unique style. Taking all the years of producing and working with studio musicians, Matt Mercado has now ventured into his first real Solo Album. This CD has a very mature, lighter feel to it and with the addition of the “Amazing Devils” there is now a full band to support touring.
