A drizzle of jazz, a touch of folk and a lot of heart- me:she straddles many lines in life and music. Inspirations include trees, laughing and playing music with people.
“me:she’s unique, trailblazing blend of experimental pop & jazz is sure to captivate any listener.” – Earshot
Meshe Mooette is behind the “Revolutionary Lullabies”-songs whose mission is to make you smile; although they’ll settle for foot-stomping, sing-along-ing and head-bopping to a mix of bossa, rock, folk & pop grooves. Using interesting harmonic choices and memorable lyrics, the band moves seamlessly between instruments and topics- from taking a bath to finding love again.
“In Meshe’s music you hear a level of sophistication that comes with training and then soul searching and rich life experiences….the sound is difficult to classify. I hear traces of jazz and folk along with quirky, theatrical elements.”
-BC Musicians Magazine
Her second release- “The Moondrops”, a double CD art-album, won Meshe the BC Musician’s Songwriting Contest with “Lucky Are We”.
Meshe’s 3rd release,“Jazzpopicorn” features her fresh arrangements of jazz standards, Leonard Cohen, George Harrison and a few originals- only available on Bandcamp.
“.. the musical skills to establish credibility with a more artsy crowd, and the earthiness and humor to make it more accessible to people like me who just love music. Meshe can sing anything, play anything and seduce anyone. Go ahead and give in.”
– Jennifer Layton, Indie-Music.com (2006 review of The Me Shell)
