What to Expect
Merlot Embargo offers several things - first and most important, great music, and a stage show that's entertaining but not overhyped. We can perform as a full band, or as an acoustic duo, and can provide a PA for smaller venues up to approximately 75 people if necessary.
Merlot Embargo typically prefers to play original music, but we also do covers of current and past pop hits.
Hey-o - we're Merlot Embargo, some humans from Los Angeles headed by singer/songwriter and guitarist/producer pair (and wife/husband) Scarlet and Geoff. We perform throughout Southern California as an both a duo and a full band, and write and record out of our home studio. We cover a lot of styles, but specialize in indie pop and jazz. We'll play whatever is needed to make your event pop though! Our own original music, some of which is in our profile here, is a mix of those styles.
In December 2014 we walked away from a nearly fatal automobile accident, and left the scene wondering what we'd have regretted if we'd been killed. The answer was immediately obvious: not pursuing our own music. This brush with death unleashed a flood of drive and creativity that propelled us to form Merlot Embargo and leave our creative stamp on the world.
For more info, check us out here, or on our own site (we're not supposed to list websites in the bio but you can probably guess what it is. ;-)
Additional Booking Notes
We can provide a PA for up to 75 people.
For the full band, we'd like a few monitors, separate monitor mixes for each singer and one for the rest of the band. (3 total) Other than that we're pretty flexible.
The acoustic duo is quite flexible and can perform with or without a PA. (Although going without a PA will only work for very small events!)
