Meri Amber is a geeky musician human from Sydney. Her sound can be likened to a mesh of bright pop with a smidgen of 90s punk rock stirred in, topped off with a generous sprinkling of pop culture references and computer game synths. She has songs inspired by everything from Doctor Who, to ninjas, zombies and robots taking over the world!
She lists Lily Allen, Mika and Aqua as some of her influences as well as Pokémon, Starbucks and Tim Minchin. When not writing songs she’s busy roaming the internet on a quest to find cat pics, novel shopables or reasons to rant in between songs at shows.
A Meri Amber performance is a quirky affair, her performances have included singing songs alongside a yeti, prawn man and mafia men puppets. She’s stood under stage lights performing at Supanova, Oz Comic-Con, AMC Expo and Armageddon, as well as supporting The Doubleclicks, Kirby Krackle and doing pre-show foyer entertainment for the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, Pink, Lady Gaga, Russell Brand and the Flight Of The Conchords. She’s also partook in sold out shows at the Qantas Credit Union Arena, Oxford Art Factory and Hills Centre.
Her song ‘Share My Time’ held the number one spot on Triple J Unearthed for two weeks, she took home the People’s Choice Award at the Australian Independent Music Awards and won the demo category of the national FOOM song writing competition.
