Nashville, TN (June 23, 2015) – Mercy’s Well is excited to announce the addition of new lead singer, Jake Wood, to their line up.

Though only 22 years old, Wood is a strong and experienced lead singer. He’s been singing for many years in various local ministries, but this will be his first full-time position in Christian music. He makes his home in Trinity, NC, yet, hails originally from the north, in Chatham, Pennsylvania.

Brad Strider (group owner and tenor singer) shares, “When we began our search for just the right fit for our team, we received inquiries from Oklahoma, Illinois, Georgia and all stops in between. I had no idea the perfect fit was less than thirty miles away! He’s been on the road with us for three weeks now and we are so thrilled to have Jake as a part of Mercy’s Well. Everyone’s going to love him!”

The group’s current single “I’ll Trade This Valley For A Mountain,” is moving up the Gospel music charts. Their next single, “TODAY,” which is the title cut of their new album, is slated to release in July.

Mercy’s Well Announces Changes and Welcomes A New Lead Singer

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 27, 2013 – 11:18 am -

DustinMW_1Nashville, TN (August 27, 2013) – It is with mixed emotions that vocal trio Mercy’s Well announces changes to their line up.

Lead singer, Kyle King, will be making his departure in mid September and, after a month of auditions and hearing many talented prospective singers, the group will be welcoming a powerhouse new vocalist. Dustin Simmons, of Dahlonega, Georgia, will make his debut appearance as the new lead singer for Mercy’s Well on September 22, 2013.

King, who has been a tremendous blessing to the group for many years, has felt God leading him in a new direction. He will be setting sail aboard a cruise ship, continuing to use the gifts God has given him but in a very new way. “It’s hard to describe, in words, the last three-and-a-half years I’ve been a part of Mercy’s Well, but I will try: privileged, humbled, and thankful,” shares Kyle. He continues, “I’m privileged to have experienced hundreds of worship services in multiple states, countries, and cultures; humbled to have been a witness of God’s amazing power at work in the lives of His people; and thankful to all the many friends, fans, and supporters of this ministry. My time with the group has truly been a blessing, and I look forward to seeing how God will continue to use each of us, for His glory, in years to come.”

Dustin and his wife, Morgan, will be relocating to North Carolina in the coming months and are very anxious and blessed to see Dustin following God’s plans for him in full-time music ministry. He has been singing for most of his life, including a 5 year tenure with the regional group Omega.

Mercy’s Well founder and tenor, Brad Strider, expresses, “A couple of months ago Kyle came to me and shared that he felt God leading him in a different direction. Anyone that knows me knows I don’t like change, but sometimes change can be God’s way of making everyone affected stronger. While we are sad to see Kyle go, we are excited about the future of Mercy’s Well with Dustin as part of our team.”

Mercy’s Well is making plans for a new recording in early 2014.
