About the Artist
An initial glance at a certain blonde hair, blue-eyed bombshell is the first step in attracting your attention. Summer Mencher’s other qualities will simply mesmerize. This “progressive folk” artist has a message, and a mission to deliver to the world. She uniquely mixes diverse sounds and influences to produce auditory pleasing music that is simultaneously unconventional yet familiar. She describes her music as a mix of Incubus and Tori Amos, with her own twists. Mencher includes middle-eastern tones, unique harmonic twists and turns, with an occasional rock edge and hip-hop/spoken word throughout her work.
Mencher’s vocals are illuminating and upbeat, while her music flows with a certain intensity that relays her passion for music. Another aspect of Summer’s life that propels her enthusiasm for music is her job working with music therapy. She and fellow Berklee students traveled to Kenya where they used music as a means to help empower AIDS and impoverished orphans. This was a powerful experience that solidified Mencher’s belief in the power of music, and has been a significant driving force in her musical life and career.
Mencher released her first CD at the young age of 18, entitled Bench People in 2003. She has since released a full band demo of four original songs in 2007 called Waves Demo. She has recently laid her hip-hop meets the acoustic guitar tracks, which will be on a compilation CD. All proceeds from this CD will go to charity to support children.
What also sets Summer Mencher apart from other musicians is her willingness to stretch beyond musical boundaries, as is evident when hearing her music. She knows how to connect with people through her music, and uses it as a tool to better the community, as she has been, and continues to do presently. To her fans and audiences, Mencher says, “I am honored and blessed to get to share this gift of music with you. Thank you for being a part of it.”
