And Michael Rozon again utilizes his special production and engineering wizardry that is apparent from the first listen on. City Makes No Sound tells diverse stories of city life that are amusing, sad and uplifting, sometimes lonely, with both hope and despair - trying to get to the essence of things. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered with a full spectrum of sound in mind – deep, full bass with bright harmonies and a rich, balanced center. Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Jeff Merchant had an extensive involvement in the local scene before launching a solo career. He created the alternative songwriter showcase "Broken Mic," which held a regular residency at Spaceland, a popular club in Silverlake.
Merchant has performed in numerous groups, including with the nationally renowned Stew (of Passing Strange). He co-fronted the orchestral pop band MetaTonic and was the frontman for the quirky art-pop band PG-13, known for its inspired interpretation of Willy Wonkaʼs “Pure Imagination”, before becoming a founding member (with Stew) of the cult fave band the Lullabies, who released their psycho-eclectic pop album, Lullabies' Lullaby. While continuing to work with this group, he also recorded his own debut solo album, window rolled down, which received national radio airplay on over 150 college, specialty and AAA stations and also on many Internet radio stations & podcasts.
