E. Robert Mercer is a lifelong educator with a Master's of Science degree in Education.  Mercer was raised in the famous, small town of Woodstock, N.Y, which profoundly influenced his understanding of people and enriched his view of the world.  Years later, his unexpected entry into the world of prescription addiction set in motion forces that would ultimately lead him to a deeper understanding of his own humanity and the suffering of others.  A singer/songwriter on guitar and piano, his next project will be a venture into the recording of his own music.
