Old Mervs

Old Mervs are riding at the peak of a surf-rock renaissance in Western Australia, having sold out a string of huge rooms in 2021 and winning fans across the country with their no-nonsense songwriting and country-lad charm.

Best mates since the age of 5, David House (vocals & guitar) and Henry Carrington-Jones (drums) grew up together in Kojonup, a tiny town approximately halfway between Perth and Albany. They began their journey as Old Mervs as Henry finished high school in 2017, converting an old stable into their first jam space and spending the following years flitting between stints in Wollongong, Perth and various country towns.

With David now based in Margaret River, and Henry in Perth, the band have been building their regional and metro fanbase in 2021 with successive sell-out shows at Freo.Social and The River.
