Self described as Uplift angst, British/Colombian Latina, MeMe Detroit was raised on the outskirts of Stratford-Upon-Avon UK and developed an ironic strong aversion to Shakespeare from a young age. As she grew, heavily influenced by a family generational box of vinyl, she inevitably developed into a poet/songwriter of her own form. Sitting somewhere between sleazy grit rock grunge and power indie, the band consists of MeMe on vocals, guitars, bass & Synth and Kallum McEwen on drums. With over 200 gigs under MeMe's belt, they have become known for their high octane, fully immersive shows.
Championed by BBC Introducing as well as landing regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, Janice Long's show on BBC Radio Wales and very recently being picked for Fresh in the Net's Fresh Faves, MeMe is fast gaining traction on the UK music scene.
