Edwin Crossley-Mercer gets an internet presence

Edwin Crossley-Mercer
We've been huge fans of Edwin Crossley-Mercer ever since he first came to our attention in 2008 after a fan of the site heard him in recital. Once we heard him (and saw him), we were hooked. However, he has been mysteriously absent on the internet, despite the development of an increasingly loyal fan base.

We were thrilled to learn that the gifted French barihunk now has an artist page on IMG Artists, as well as a personal site with his schedule. You can follow him on Twitter @EdwinXleyMercer. We also love his new head shot, which could be right out of GQ magazine.

Edwin Crossley-Mercer sings excerpts from Othmar Schoeck's cantata:

  3. The most vocal-perfection seeking baryton I have ever heard, AND a gentleman. What is more, he just becomes better and better at his art.

  4. Yesterday, I drew your attention to the fact that this gentleman has my every admiration as one of today's top baritones. My appreciation must have been overlooked.

  5. Edwin Crossley-Mercer and concert pianist David Fray gave a recital at the Saint Denis Festival on Sunday to a public who screamed "Magnificent" and "Sublime" after only a few Lieder. At the end of the performance, I could not hear my neigbor talk, because of the ovation and applause - never heard anything like it.
