EllaMcDs Presents: MERCY'S CARTEL

— The Thunderbolt
+ Olivia Rose, Badliana and Chloe Sage
price: Headfirst Tickets



Based in Bristol and London, Mercy found herself relating more to the “geezers” as opposed to the ultra-glam ladies of her hometown, Brentwood in Essex. First introduced to music as young as eight years old, she started playing the double bass in her local church and orchestra.

Feeling her most natural self on stage, Mercy’s Cartel and her band have supported artists such as Kojey Radical, Tom Grennan, Tirzah, Etta Bond, Yazmin Lacey and more. In addition, she performed at established festivals such as Dot to Dot, Glastonbury (via Silver Hayes), Kendal Calling and Giles Peterson’s We Out Here festival and was selected to open up for Ms Lauryn Hill, Grace Jones and IDLES at The Downs Festival.

Last summer, she was one of 10 black women selected to be part of Native Management, Nao and Mura Masa’s initiative to get more women of colour into touring careers. Experiencing a full circle moment during the course whilst speaking to one of her biggest inspirations Nao, Mercy now has her sights set sky-high. With new singles on the way and an EP in the pipeline, she is excited to get her music out there and show audiences her progression and experimentation.

“What really drew me to her voice is how it can handle any style; Pop, R&B, Electronica, Funk, Jazz, it’s all there in this track, and she rides them all perfectly.” - Jack’s Saunders



Olivia Rose:

20 year old singer songwriter from Bristol, Olivia Rose, is a dark horse. Small in stature yet her voice and lyrics bring much power.  She is inspired by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Sade and Nelly Furtado. Olivia has been writing since the age of 8 years old, and performing since the age of 9, she uses music as a form of therapy, expressing herself through her lyrics. Her music is a fusion of R&B, Trap and Pop, she works with producers who create the beats, specifically Mulade and has just started creating her own beats. In 2018, she performed on stage with Nine8 Collective at E1 London and will be performing at Love Saves The Day 2021.




Bristol based artist Badliana has spent her musical career cultivating her sound and paving the way for her solo career to take flight. With a distinctive, haunting vocal style, Badliana draws on dark electronic sounds such as grime, hip hop & trap and combines this with influence from jazz, soul & r&b. The result is a deeply personal sound and style with Badliana weaving stories of emotional battles, heartbreak and unrestricted resentment within her music. 

Badliana has just released her debut EP, 'Diary of a Loner', with Saffron Records. The first single being 'Motorola', accompanied by the official video released on 1st April 2021, the EP has already grabbed the attention of BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, NTS, CLASH, Mixmag, Foundation fm & SWU fm.




Hailing from Bristol, UK, Chloe Sage (@chloesagee) is a Rap and R&B DJ with a great ear for production, the USA’s and London Rap Scenes. With her 2 monthly shows on local @swu.fm, Chloe blends her love of old and new school sounds ranging from UK Rap, Drill, Trap, West Coast and R&B.
