Since she could talk, Meia was constantly singing. As she got older, and her finger dexterity improved she began playing the piano. That was just the beginning, she went on to learn Saxophone, Flute, Guitar, Bass and a few random instruments, including the didgeridoo.
Early influences include Elvis Presley, Jewel, Alanis Morrisett, Meril Bainbridge and Meredeith Brooks! Later she came to be influenced by Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Janice Jopplin, The Who, The Beatles and many more classic bands from the 70's and 90's.
Today she is fond of musicians such as Ana Nalick, Amy Lee, Christina Perri, Mumford and Sons and many others!
