Mercy Bell is a distinct voice with a potent, progressive take on emotive, modern / country. Lauded by Rolling Stone, Curve, Strange Fire Magazine, and many many more she is a force to be reckoned with in the emerging Americana landscape. Her sound is deeply influenced by traditional roots music, folk and country western songs of the 1960s-70s, and songwriters of the 1990s. As an openly queer Filipino-American woman who has lived all over the United States and grapples with the hard truths of life, Bell offers a fresh and dynamic approach to folk music.

Oakland's First Lady of Queer Country. Cindy Emch, plays foot stompin' heart breakin' Americana music about good friends and hard times. You'll be haunted by the dark, sexy, boozy ballads, off-kilter anthems, and foot stompin' heart breakin' cowboy songs performed by her band the Secret Emchy Society. With turns that are happy, sad, heartbreaking and humble her music echoes a variety of vintage styles, from rowdy honky tonk to vulnerable ballads, with broad swaths of zydeco, country and cabaret tossed in for good measure that will appeal to fans of June Carter Cash, Lydia Loveless, Neko Case, Shovels & Rope, Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner.

Named by the HuffingtonPost as the 'First Lady of Queer Country,' by RockThePigeon.com as a "Queer Country Icon," and by TheBoot.com as one of the Ten Queer Country Bands for Real Country Music Fans to Listen To, and by the Atlanta Auditory Association as having one of the 50 best album of 2017 - Secret Emchy Society is a truly raw, honest, and authentic listening experience not to be missed. The Secret Emchy Society has shared stages with Sarah Shook, Carolyn Mark, Jason Hawk Harris, Lavender Country, Laura Benitez & the Heartache, Shawna Virago, Mya Byrne and many more.
