Mea - >This mistress of illusion has
been crafting her talents as a singer, songwriter and deejay since she
was a teenager growing up in Missouri. A trained, avid dancer, Mea, once
choreographed routines for the Kansas City Chiefettes. These days, she
spends much of her time traveling around the globe for numerous deejaying
gigs and even more behind the microphone belting out songs that she has
more than likely authored. She is often referred to by friends as "the
Millennium Madonna" - which suits her just fine as Madonna, she says without
delay, "is the sole reason I became interested in music." With her talent
and remarkable energy, she could very well be the next big thing. But
until that day comes, Mea keeps it real by remembering her roots, striving
for the next level and savoring her love relationship with music. Afterall,
to Mea, love and music are the international languages, she just wants
to be the translator for her generation.
Mea, the quest for notoriety begins with a triumphant relocation to Chicago.
After attending a rave in the city, Mea sold out of her partnership in
a clothing store and moved to Chi-town where she would immediately establish
herself in the club scene. Hosting at such nightclubs as Shelter and Crobar,
Méa proved she could contend with the competitive host circuit and in
the meantime became familiar with all the movers and shakers in the industry.
One such person was
Bobby Fresh, owner of ThousandWords magazine for whom Méa worked as a
managerial assistant during the day often after playing hostess in the
clubs at night. With ThousandWords, Mea established an identity with the
underground world, and eventually made contact with DJ Mixin' Marc who
brought her into the SHR Group.
Once there, Méa spent
many hours with the label's producers learning techniques behind the console
and lending her vocals and lyrics to songs on the UC Music, Afterhours,
Dialogue, and Sunrise labels. Her perseverance with the company would
culminate with her union with the Ministers of Sound production team of
Spero Pagos and Ron Carroll. Working with the duo, Méa's talents for deejaying,
singing and songwriting blossomed. Since this time, Méa has grown from
those labels and has completed projects for the Soundmen on Wax ,Colossal,
and Sony labels.
July 11,200, she released her first globally distributed mixed CD compilation
with her own vocals layered in the mixes to add such a unique effect.
The CD is called "Shaken, Not Stirred", released on the Afterhours Label.
In the future you
will definitely see more credits for Méa as she takes on productions like
her next CD/Vocal compilation, "Welcome To My House," a tribute to her
Summer Tour with The Funky Tekno Tribe. When not in the studio, Méa busies
herself through her vigorous travel schedule. Every weekend, bookings
across the United States keep her moving, flying and motivating people
to dance, unite, and share in the joy of music. From Houston to Minneapolis,
Atlanta to San Francisco, promoters ask for Méa by name and keep her coming
back to energize and excite their crowds. As her name catch
