Merlin Gene

An American Country Music Singer carrying on the tradition!

Merlin Gene

Merlin Gene is an American country music singer-songwriter, and humorist known for his traditional country music,  and adding quirky, comedy style songs in between solid country music. Heartfelt ballads are included, in between toe-tapping, dashboard thumping road songs. Novelty songs reflect Merlin's humorous side, by allowing country music to adorn a number of funny, satire laced story songs. Pedal Steel Guitar is a necessary ingredient in each song, as well as twangy, edgy, Telecaster electric guitar.

Merlin Gene continues to carry on the style and presentation of the "Hollywood movie cowboy", while observing the longstanding tradition of the 1950's and '60's Opry country singers, by wearing ornate, Embroidered and rhinestone garnished western suits. He insists on wearing a western cowboy hat, and pointed toe high heeled western cowboy boots. American made acoustic and electric guitars round out the formula, made by Martin, Fender, Gibson and Master Guitar builder, Ed Foley.
