Meresha - "New Revolution"
Musician/Alien/Vegan | Soon to take over da world :-)
Genre: Electronica, eclecto-pop
Alien-loving vegan singer, songwriter, musician, composer and producer – at only 18 years old, Meresha recently launched her EP “new revolution”. She is a force to be reckoned with.
Haven’t heard Of Meresha? You soon will, if she achieves her proclaimed goal of taking over the world. She promises, though, to be a benevolent leader…
Like a younger (female) Prince with a voice compared sometimes to Joss Stone, Meresha composes and performs her own eclectic mix of provocative music. It’s as if a more accessible Björk was reborn and was influenced by Electro-Pop stars James Blake and Disclosure or legends like Freddie Mercury.
Born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, Meresha’s interest in music began at the age of 11 with both guitar and voice lessons. In just one year, music became her passion, and she began writing and performing for anyone who would listen. By the age of 15, Meresha had convinced her family to move to the United States so that she could fully pursue her music career.
Meresha got to work, and one year later she perfected songs for her first EP, “Lunatic”. Funded through Kickstarter, Meresha raised over 200% of her goal and used the extra money to host a launch party at BB King’s Blues Club. Adding fans around the world through her Kickstarter campaign, and drawing a large local crowd to her launch party, Meresha quickly recognized that her sound – a soulful voice with modern beats was a unique blend that people craved.
Now, with the release of her second EP, Meresha plans to take the world by storm. A trendsetter, Meresha became the first artist to launch an EP exclusively on the new social media site tsu, one week before it was available publicly. She made videos with the CEO, prominent tsu users, the tsu leadership team as well as prominent charities ahead of the launch.
What makes Meresha’s music extraordinary is her determination to utilize each and every one of her talents. Meresha wrote and sung every song on her album, and as a pianist, guitarist and drummer, she composed and performed each song as well.
“New Revolution”, the title track on her EP, is a celebratory song that Meresha hopes each listener will interpret to be meaningful for his or her own “revolution”. An upbeat song that was designed to get listeners to dance and sing along, “new revolution” was written and composed to lift spirits and simply have fun. “I created this song as a celebration of the past, creation of the new and a respect of the classics,” says Meresha. “But it really can be about many things and people can interpret it in many ways. It can be applied to music, innovation or even technology.”
“New Revolution” recently won or was semi-finalist in several global music competitions, and was praised by the music press and has received extensive global radio play.
5 time MTV VMA nominee David Rousseau (Pitbull, Magic!, Enrique Iglesias, LMFAO, Christina Aguilera, Lil' Wayne) is the Director of the video for “new revolution”.
One of Meresha’s favorite songs on the album, “you”, is more personal. She invites you to witness her “softer side” and tells a story she’s crafted about two individuals who admire each other but don’t know how the other feels. A powerful ballad that demonstrates the range of her voice, it is a bit mysterious, but ends well for the song’s heroes.
Other songs on the EP include the cool “lemonade city” and smooth “august".
