Mer has been singing since before she could talk and gave her first solo performance at 10 years old. After studying classical voice, musical theater and jazz in college she took a sharp left turn and veered into the business world for a number of years. That road left her with the feeling that something was missing in her life. She knew music was that absent puzzle piece but had very little time to devote to a band or theatrical production between long hours in a grueling, high-stress, sales position. So, just to get her feet wet again she began singing karaoke in local bars, winning a number of contests along the way. She has been performing professionally since 2011 when she unexpectedly landed an appearance on ABC’s short-lived attempt to jump into the singing show genre with the show “Karaoke Battle USA”. Though it only lasted one season, the ill-fated show aired to over 3 million people and jump-started a long overdue transition back into music. These days Meredith is performing full time at venues and private events all over the bay, teaching as much as possible and is back in school studying music and psychology.
