Alice Merton- "No Roots"
1/3/19

Alice Merton “No Roots” (Mom+Pop/RED)

          #1 Modern Rock

Mom + Pop’s David Jacobs: “Mom+Pop Music co-owner Thaddeus Rudd heard about a song called “No Roots”—by an unsigned artist named Alice Merton—that was making waves in Europe, where it was #1 in several countries, in early 2017. He flew out to meet with Alice, and a deal was signed just a few days later. My first visit was KNRK Portland, and by the time I walked out of Mark Hamilton’s office, the record was on the air. Phil Kukawinski at WFUZ and Jeff Morad at WEQX were also instant believers, and the story unfolded rapidly from there.”

WFUZ Wilkes Barre-Scranton’s Phil Kukawinski: “I remember getting the email with the stream for ‘No Roots’ about a month before it was getting worked. My first response was, ‘How soon can I play this!?’ It sounded amazing, had a strong hook and fit right in the pocket for what the station was leaning towards.”
