MeMe Detroit NEW SINGLE 'CHURCHSIDE INN' Out 5th October 2018 + Gig Dates

British/Colombian Latina, MeMe Detroit was raised on the outskirts of Stratford-Upon-Avon UK and developed an ironic strong aversion to Shakespeare from a young age. As she grew, heavily influenced by a family generational box of vinyl, she inevitably developed into a poet/songwriter of her own form.
Sitting somewhere between sleazy grit rock grunge and power indie, now Birmingham based MeMe Detroit oozes sultry guitar driven hooks with a head turning vocal to make the sharpest of hairs stand on edge.

The band consists of MeMe on vocals, guitars & Synth, Barney Such on Drums and Paris Fennell on bass. With over 200 gigs under their belt, they have become known for their high octane, fully immersive shows.

Since her 2016 debut album release ‘Live to Love You'll Love to Live', MeMe has been pulling in fans with a magnetism that is both eloquent yet effortlessly cool.

March release ‘Soc Med Junkies' (on SoulRock Central records) and latest single, ‘Get Down On With Me’ were both championed by BBC Introducing amongst others with GDOWM also landing regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio.

“There is a bone rattling, soul shaking quality to this record (‘Get Down On With Me’)”

"Soc Med Junkies is a gritty slice of infectious rock 'n' roll"
Get in her ears
“...silently observational, and fearlessly immersed. It’s exciting."

“MeMe has a gripping energy that grabs your gaze and holds it."
Leigh Sanders - Express & Star

" artist that is writing way beyond her years."
Adam Zindani - Stereophonics
