Today's Featured Artist is Meri Amber

I recently had the opportunity to talk to +Meri Amber. We spoke about her music, comics, ninjas, singing in the shower, and pizza. 

Meri Amber is a geek pop singer songwriter from Sydney, Australia. Her sound can be likened to a mesh of bright pop with a smidgen of 90's punk rock stirred in, topped off with a generous sprinkling of pop culture samples and computer game synths.

You can view the video for "Nothing's In Your Way" by Meri Amber at the following link.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wL6XdsBFBvM

You can listen to "Macro" by Meri Amber on SoundCloud at the following link.  https://soundcloud.com/meriamber/macro

What you see there, that's only what you get at the door of the VIP room...

http://bit.ly/MeriAmberMail

Then there's all the exclusive previews of songs and videos, the exclusive freebies and the inside info.

if you haven't got your free VIP pass head over and grab it! All you need is an email and about 20 seconds of time. Maybe less time if you're stealth.

The things you learn... It's professional music-ism ;)

The reason microphones in recording studios look like UFOs is so that any impact that the microphone stand would have on the recording (through it moving or picking up vibrations etc.) is lessened. 

And also because recording engineers wanted recording studios to look more space-age. To be honest, it was likely more of the latter :P

Here's the music video to the very first song I recorded in the very setup you see below (quite literally, I do think that photo was taken during the recording of 'Macro'): http://bit.ly/MacroVid

To be honest, I'd probably want the whole twin pack to myself too...

+Scott Morgan and you know what? That is what matters. There are hundreds of people out there with "easy" lives that find all sorts of small things to be miserable about. It's not what you have, it's what you make of it!

*How to say 'Why are there buttons on the mobile phone?' in Hungarian. It's useful as they still sell those retro phones everywhere there!

It seems to be a thing that often people will buy a button-y phone for everyday use and a smartphone to surf the internet. I kinda see the logic. I miss my Nokia E69. Such a wonderful device that was >sigh<.

Nonetheless, it is a tad confusing for someone who's gotten used to the fact that everyone around them has a slab of glass as their communication device.

The music video for 'I Was Home In The Air' is up!

The song was a collaboration with pilot and author Mark L. Berry and is peppered with aeroplane sounds. The video is more of a montage of relevant footage (quite different to my usual videos and largely a result of me not having access to a plane to film my own footage!).

I wrote a blog about the video if you'd like to find out more about the background behind it here: http://bit.ly/HomeInTheAirVid

Tomorrow the music video for the song 'I Was Home In The Air' (lyrics by Mark L Berry​, music and production by yours truly) is climbing onto my YouTube channel.

Here's some teaser pics to wet your palette and transport you (even just a few snippets) into the future: http://bit.ly/HomeInTheAirStills

Melon vs Ninja... Drum roll... FIGHT!

Some of the best melon I ever had was whilst recording the Postcard Singles. One of them was 8kg! Good times that (licks lips).

Here's the music video for 'Macro', one of the melon-fuelled songs: http://bit.ly/MacroVid

'I like to get really close... In case you can't tell ;)' - Macro

This is quite obviously a lyric about Macro photography. Obviously.

You can watch the music video for the song here: http://bit.ly/MacroVid

A phrase to help you when you're hungry in Hungary- 'I want pizza and ice cream'.

Whilst you're in Hungary, it's worth trying Langos too. It's kind of like a Hungarian take on pizza... A.k.a, a delicious cardiac arrest in a dish. You can use it in place of a health check up. Basically, if you survive, you're good.

To watch the music video for the photography themed love song I recorded whilst eating my Langos and ice cream, wander here: http://bit.ly/MacroVid

Story

Geek pop singer songwriter. Think lasers, kazoos & ninja style world domination.
Introduction
Meri Amber is a geek pop singer-songwriter 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 samples and computer game synths.

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 drawing, inking and colouring her CD booklet comic, or alternatively, roaming the internet on a quest to find cat pics, novel shopables or reasons to rant on her community radio show.

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 as pre-show foyer entertainment for Pink, Lady Gaga, Russell Brand and the Flight Of The Conchords, as well as partook in sold out shows at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Oxford Art Factory and Hills Centre.

Like Charlie Sheen, she’s also done some winning. 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.
