In January 2007, Adam Merrin released his first solo EP entitled HAVE ONE, available on iTunes and other digital music sites. In 2009, he released his first full-length album called HAVE ANOTHER ONE.
Adam’s songs have been featured on GREY'S ANATOMY, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, THE BIG C, BONES, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, KYLE XY, GREEK, REAPER, NEWPORT HARBOR, and in the film THE HAUNTING HOUR.
Adam is the keyboardist for the Los Angeles rock band, The 88. He produced, mixed, and engineered the band's debut CD, KIND OF LIGHT, which won them an LA WEEKLY award for “Best Pop/Rock Band.” KIND OF LIGHT was also featured as RADIO AND RECORDS “Album of the Week.” The 88 became a staple on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, a clearinghouse for rising indie rock outfits.
The band has released five full length albums, an EP, and have been playing practically nonstop with tour dates throughout the United States, England and Canada including opening slots with Ray Davies, Smashing Pumpkins, B52's, Elliott Smith, Guster, Flaming Lips, Matt Costa, and more.
Today the group’s TV resume includes segments on CONAN, LOPEZ TONIGHT, THE JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, LIVE WITH REGIS AND KELLY, LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY, and appeared as themselves in a performance on the sitcom HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.
The 88’s ongoing licensing streak has netted over 50 music placements in film, television and advertising since their debut release in 2003. This has included films, YOU ME AND DUPREE, FAILURE TO LAUNCH, IRA & ABBY, and popular television shows such as THE OC, GREY'S ANATOMY, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, ONE TREE HILL, GOSSIP GIRL, WEEDS, LAGUNA BEACH, the theme song to COMMUNITY, and more.
Adam has also recorded piano with Ray Davies, Matt Costa, 311, and plans to continue playing with The 88 as well as recording new material for his solo project.
