After huge hype and a major label release in 1999, he walked away from the deal and disappeared completely. Returning from self-imposed exile in 2005, he released second album Loveheart on UK indie label Gronland, a work that won him renewed respect, then scaled the iTunes charts in the USA with follow-up album Moi et Mon Camion in 2008, solidifying his reputation for heartfelt tunes, intricate production and enigmatic displays of multi-instrumental talent. His fourth album, No Compass Will Find Home, was recorded in the Swiss Alps and produced by electronic pioneer Matthew Herbert. A progressive, wild and ragged record with a unique kind of psychedelia, it was released on Accidental Records in January 2013 and subsequently gave birth to a collaboration with Swiss experimental drummer, Julian Sartorius who created an album consisting of drum and vocal only renditions of No Compass Will Find Home.

Merz’s fifth album “Thinking Like A Mountain” is set to be released in 2015. It contains notable writing collaborations with the prolific NYC musician Shahzad Ismaily, with Julian Sartorius and with Icelandic singer and Cellist, founder member of the band múm, Gyða Valtýsdóttir. And was mixed by Matthew Herbert, with additional mixing by Dimlite & Ewan Pearson. Merz’s previous collaborations have included Paul Hartnoll from Orbital, London guitarist and composer Leo Abrahams, Will Gregory from Goldfrapp, Producers Markus Dravs, Marius De Vries, Tim Simenon, Bruno Ellingham. In the past year Merz has worked with artists as varied as cult electronic composer Dimlite and UK beatmaker Dan Le Sac to Balearic-electro producer Tythe and Norwegian folk songstress Anne Marie Almedal.

Recent airtime support of Merz has included BBC’s Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne, Guy Garvey, XFM’s Eddy Temple Morris, John Kennedy and long-time US-fans KCRW Radio"
