BIO

Sitting somewhere between sleazy grunge and power indie, MeMe Detroit oozes sultry guitar driven hooks with a head turning vocal that will bring out the 90s alt rocker in you and shake you up with a modern day swagger.



Inspired and moved by the heartfelt notes of Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood's guitar playing, 
MeMe released debut single (via her own founded label SoulRock Central Records) "Stand Up You're Living" followed by a fan favourite, 'A Point of You'.

The debut album 'Live to Love You'll Love to Live', released in 2016 was received with great praise..



"This album made me feel something special from the 1st note I heard, brilliant debut from an artist that is writing way beyond her years..." - Adam Zindani - Stereophonics

 

"..It feels like you are thrown back to the 90's Hearing elements of 'Babes in Toyland' and 'PJ Harvey'!..." - Luke Johnson - Amen, No Devotion.


Single 'A Point of You' attracted positive international attention including an invite on to BBC Introducing for an interview and live session.


Brand new single "How she runs" (penned for the feature film "My Saviour") was released on July 28th of this year and has since been awash with praise on the review front; including a feature in Gigslutz' "Tracks of the week" and a recent 5 star rating in "Grrrls with guitars".




Alongside preparation for the next single release later in the year and pre-production for the next E.P release in 2018, MeMe is currently touring to coincide with the new releases.


Previous upport slots include bands such as Dead Sea Skulls, Piano Wire, Fun lovin' Criminals and Asylums.
Stand out shows include The O2 Academy, Dublin Castle, Fiddlers Elbow, West Street Live and Jurassic Fields festival.

"How She Runs is the name of her forthcoming single, and it’s an apt depiction of where her career is going." Leigh Sanders, The Express & Star

"...'Live to Love…’ is one of those rare albums which could just as easily sit on an Indie playlist as on a Rock list." - Rich Hobson, Uber Rock


"So there’s a bit of a buzz surrounding this next artist, and it’s getting louder and louder." - Joanne Kendrick, Mosh magazine


"...with a musical style reminiscent of The Smashing Pumpkins and Incubus. Her vocals draw out the 90’s Alt Rocker in you.." - Mica Hamilton, retrograde

"A grunge feel now takes over the night, and people start feeling a little more comfortable to dance and move right towards the front. The songs are so catchy and have the loyal fans singing along...." - Lee Endres, Grapevine Birmingham


"A Point Of You is a stunning slab of grungy rock......" - Rhythm & Booze
