Self-described as Uplift Angst, British/Latina MeMe Detroit is an indie/grunge/pop inspired, genre merging, high octane breath of vivacity with an unforgettable live show that has pure passion & ardor for music at its heart.
Birmingham based Maria Rodriguez aka MeMe Detroit was raised on the outskirts of Stratford-Upon-Avon UK and ironically developed a strong aversion to Shakespeare from a young age. As the singer and multi-instrumentalist grew, along with her passion for any music that moved her, regardless of genre and mainly thanks to the heavy influence of a box of vinyl passed down through family generations, she inevitably developed into a poet/songwriter of her own.
Championed by BBC Introducing, Fresh On The Net, Kerrang! Radio's Jonny Doom & BBC's beloved Janice Long, MeMe, along with drummer Kallum McEwen and bassist Joey Strange, have been described as a force of nature worth reckoning with. Having made the 2022 Glastonbury Emerging longlist and the quarter finals of the Hotvox New Blood Isle of Wight Fest comp, MeMe and the band are fast pricking up the ears and eyes on the UK music scene and beyond.
