Self-taught guitarist and songwriter. earned her BA in Music and Sound Recording from the University of New Haven in Connecticut, and brushing up her performance chops all over Massachusetts with her own band, as well as another one of Boston’s leading cover bands, Six Foot Sunday, Merlin’s talents landed her a spot on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning series, The Voice. After her audition of Sugarland’s “Something More,” and some heated haggling between coaches Adam Levine and Shakira, Merlin joined Team Shakira and became a powerhouse female staple of The Voice: Season 6. Merlin, who finished 4th overall on The Voice, is now making her debut with original music. Her EP, Boomerang, is now available.
