“Violet Night” is out now.
Ready to celebrate with me?
It’s the 3rd single off my album “Enter the Dreamland”, which was selected by AllMusic as one of the Top 20 Albums of the year globally (Pop).
I’m also running a remix competition for it. Should you know any producers, not too late to enter (see “More info” below).
As we head into the weekend, there is a lot to be grateful for.
Here’s wishing you a “Violet Night”!

Young Indie singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer creating eclectic digital pop with a soulful throwback voice.
Meresha’s music has landed on Top 40 Billboard charts 3 times while her videos have been played internationally, including on MTV. She’s been the #1 Indie artist on US radio for a month.
In July 2017, Billboard named Meresha the #3 emerging artist globally.
Meresha is a voting member in the Grammy process as part of The Recording Academy.
Her 2017 EP is called “Enter the Dreamland” and includes production from multi-Grammy winner Joe Chiccarelli. It charted on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and was Top 10 on iTunes, Amazon and HMV charts. AllMusic selected the EP as one of the Top 18 Pop Albums globally of 2017.
At the age of 12, Meresha recorded her song “Fool Don’t Be” in a CD booth at a mall. Fun, refreshing, and totally independent, the song revealed exciting potential. Born in Europe, at 15 the singer and multi-instrumentalist uprooted her family, and headed for Florida. Her intense focus and Indie attitude garnered interest with young fans and supporters of independent music alike. While her deep, soulful voice recalled a young Annie Lennox and Katy Perry, her quirky sonic vision drew comparisons to a Björk or Lorde.
In 2015, she released the EP New Revolution, which included the title track and a trio of other songs that ranged in style from the Florence & The Machine to FKA Twigs. Her sometimes frenetic eclecticism and eccentric beats created a fresh sound that brought old styles into contemporary production. She performed songs from the EP live in concert with Adam Lambert and Third Eye Blind.
That same forward-thinking pop vibe carried into 2016 when she released the single “My Love Has Come,” which shifted focus from her innovative production to her vocal strength.
Her late 2016 releases are”Together” and “Juntos”, which is Meresha’s first song in Spanish. A fun lyric video shot in the Bahamas and Florida introduces the song.
In December 2016, Billboard named Meresha the #6 emerging artist in the World, based on their “Next Big Sound” chart.
In June 2017, Meresha released her EP “Enter the Dreamland”, including production from multi-Grammy winner Joe Chiccarelli. She debuted 2 of the EP’s song for some 40,000 fans at SunFest in Florida. A video for the song “Enter The Dreamland” was directed by David Rousseau and shot in the L.A. River and at El Matador beach in Malibu. The video won the Music California Viewers Choice Award for 2017.
