(musical) artist, vegan & alien luver.
Young Indie singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer creating eclectic digital pop with a soulful throwback voice.
Meresha’s music has landed on Top 40 Billboard charts 3 times while her videos have been played internationally, including on MTV properties. She’s been the #1 Indie artist in the US for a month. In Dec. 2016, Billboard named Meresha a Top 10 global emerging artist.
In December 2016, Billboard named Meresha’s the #6 emerging artist globally.
At the age of 12, Meresha recorded her song “Fool Don’t Be” in a CD booth at a mall. Fun, refreshing, and totally independent, the song revealed exciting potential. Born in Europe, at 15 the singer and multi-instrumentalist uprooted her family, and headed for Florida. Her intense focus and Indie attitude garnered interest with young fans and supporters of independent music alike. While her deep, soulful voice recalled a young Annie Lennox and Katy Perry, her quirky sonic vision drew comparisons to a Björk or Lorde.
In 2015, she released the EP New Revolution, which included the title track and a trio of other songs that ranged in style from the Florence & The Machine to FKA Twigs. Her sometimes frenetic eclecticism and eccentric beats created a fresh sound that brought old styles into contemporary production. She performed songs from the EP live in concert with Adam Lambert and Third Eye Blind.
That same forward-thinking pop vibe carried into 2016 when she released the single “My Love Has Come,” which shifted focus from her innovative production to her vocal strength.
Her late 2016 releases are”Together” and “Juntos”, which is Meresha’s first song in Spanish. A fun lyric video shot in the Bahamas and Florida introduces the song.
In December 2016, Billboard named Meresha the #6 emerging artist in the World, based on their “Next Big Sound” chart.
