In 2011, Merrin's song, "Still Alright" won "Best Song in a Television show" for "Necessary Roughness" at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
Merrin produced, mixed, and engineered The 88's 2003 debut CD, Kind of Light, and won the LA Weekly award for Best Pop/Rock Band that year. Kind of Light was also featured as Radio & Records Album of the Week, and the 88 became a staple on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, a clearinghouse for rising indie rock outfits.
They have released seven full-length albums, and were the backing band for the Ray Davies Fall 2011 US Tour. The 88 also opened the shows and joined him to play Kinks songs during his encore during the 2010-2012 tour. The band has also previously opened for acts like The Smashing Pumpkins, The B-52's, Elliott Smith, Frank Black, Matt Costa, 311, and Flaming Lips. High-profile song placements in video games, films, commercials, and popular TV shows have helped to earn the band a growing audience. In 2012, the band co-scored the Jennifer Westfeldt movie Friends with Kids. Their track "At Least It Was Here" is the opening theme song for the television series Community.
Today the group's TV resume includes segments on Conan, Lopez Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, MTV News, Extra, and they appeared in a performance on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother.
