‘Electric Black Man’ Eric Mercury Releases New S/T Song

The Toronto-born songwriter and producer, who performed with ‘60s groups The Pharaohs, Eric Mercury & the Soul Searchers, and Dianne Brooks, before hitting his stride in the US, has teamed up with Montreal composer Anthony Aramouni to release “Bright Eyed Woman.”

Mercury’s first solo album, recorded for Avco Embassy, was Electric Black Man and he followed it with several other releases before finding his niche as a writer, composer, and producer working with artists that include Thelma Houston, Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, Dionne Warwick, and Kenny Rankin.

Aramouni, who has had success as a soundtrack composer, is credited as writer and producer of “Bright Eyed Woman,” that features in the 2020 coming-of-age dramedy, Blue Tongues.

Mercury currently promotes himself as music director for CanWood Entertainment, a diversified production and partnership entity.

The new song's official launch on April 25 coincides with the 50th anniversary of Electric Black Man’s release. Watch the official video for “Bright Eyed Woman” here.
