Sometimes people talk about the difficulty of releasing a second album. Even though ‘Let It Go Easy’ is an album about a difficult time in the life of Mercy John, the songs for the album came very naturally. After writing his first album ‘This Ain’t New York’ Mercy John was already praised for his songwriting craftmanship, but the new album ‘Let It Go Easy’ proves even more that the deepest emotions often lead to the most intriguing songs.
The highly acclaimed debut album ‘This Ain’t New York’ opened up many doors for the honest songwiter John Verhoeven, aka Mercy John. He played several big festivals and support tours with JW Roy and Danny Vera. At one point everything seemed to move a little bit too fast. In these days the singer met both himself as well as some fears that had been following him for many years. The new album, that will be released in February 2019, was written in that period. Despite this, it did not turn out to be a very dark album, but an album on which is being searched and sometimes even found.
