Mercury Maid is a New York City-based original rock band whose roots go back
to the late 1980’s. Two of the members, singer Israel Bien and guitarist Anthony
Dalleva, were original members of the band Cloak & Dagger, who recorded and
toured into the early 1990’s. When Cloak & Dagger folded, each musician went
his own way and began pursuing other projects, including in the theater.
In 1994, singer Bien met bassist Nader Ashway while performing in an off-Broadway
revival of the musical Hair. It would take almost 20 years for them to reunite in
what is now Mercury Maid.
The new band quickly got to work writing material that would allow them to
explore all of their influences over the years. In 2017, they released their first
recording, simply titled “Mercury Maid.” It features seven
songs of original music, and is enjoying grass-roots
success on Spotify, iTunes and CDBaby.
In 2018, the band welcomed new drummer Al Vetere,
and is now at work writing material for a follow-up to
their pilot release. They plan to record with producer
Wes Edmonds in Memphis and expect to release a
full-length CD of all new material later this year.
