It is hard to find artists who have had such a whirlwind of success and have managed to not only stay grounded but also maintain a positive and appreciative attitude.

His personality, extraordinary guitars, vocals, and producer talents are infused into “No Mercy’s” music with a distinctive energized atmosphere. His upbeat songs are gracefully tempered while his ballads highlight vocal harmonizing.
Call it pop-ular music that blends house, pop, soul, R&B and Latin rhythms with the Mediterranean beauty of the Spanish guitar thus creating an infectious groove with a mix of fast-paced dance and soulful love songs. The music of “No Mercy” is uniquely recognized worldwide.
Currently, “No Mercy” has been touring throughout Europe and Russia and recording new music in his Miami, Florida studio.
It all started when Marty Cintron, a young man from the Bronx, New York, was performing on the streets of South Beach in Miami, Florida one evening. His strong voice, an acoustic guitar and his good looks peaked the interest of an extremely successful European producer who told him that he would like to work with him. Cintron sat down with the producer, who proceeded to ask if Cintron knew a couple of other guys who could join him. “I mentioned my two best friends, Ariel and Gabriel Hernandez, who are twins, and who like me, had been working and working, just waiting for some type of break,” remembers Cintron. “Then boom, one month later, the three of us are in a recording studio in Germany.”
When they were not in the studio, Marty, Ariel and Gabriel use to hang out at Prince’s club, Glam Slam, dancing the night away. “Prince”, so impressed with their skills, asked them to audition for an upcoming tour of his. Not only did they end up touring with Prince, but they also appeared in many music videos along side “Prince.”
Says Cintron, “we never lost sight of our dreams and always had high hopes to support ourselves doing what we really love to do.” With their first album, “No Mercy” wanted to create something new and fresh that people—both young and old—could relate to. “We were simply trying to come up with something a little new. We like to be seen as trend-setters and not as a group that copies others,” says Cintron. “It’s much better to come up with a sound and identity all your own. We want people to know it’s us when they hear one of our songs. We want people to say, “Yeah, that’s No Mercy.”
