It’s been one Hell of a journey for Kiwi Rock sensation Merv Pinny, seeing him transform from rural dairy farmer to viral Rock God…surviving being run over by a truck and a broken spine as a result of a motorbike smash along the way. Ironically, it is to Hell he turns now with the release of Little Demons, a track which has taken on a life of its own, seeing it starting out as part of one of another of Merv’s tracks before fans demanded it get a full release! Now fully recovered and with millions of streams and views of his tracks and videos due to his viral hit, ‘OB Can You Hear the Children Cry‘ (13 million views and counting), as well as the recent radio hit, ‘I‘, Merv is back with another exhilarating single ‘Little Demons‘!
Merv Pinny may well have been born a rock star but his upbringing on New Zealand’s North Island saw him becoming a dairy farmer, with his musical ambitions only ignited fully when his older brother gave him a $10 guitar when he was ten years old…perhaps the least he could do after accidentally running him over in a truck, an incident which led doctors to fear Merv would never walk again! The mercurial Merv also overcame a broken back incurred in a motorcycle crash shortly after being nominated for best country rock album in the New Zealand Vodafone Music Awards but rose again, electing to leave behind the farming life for good, devoting his life not just to music but to campaigning for social justice.
