Meskerem Mees

Music / Indie, Singer-Songwriter / Gent, Belgium

Presented by: Rolling Stone

Meskerem Mees enjoys being compared to big names on an almost daily basis. The Belgian singer-songwriter with the distinct velvet voice has earned a reputation in her homeland as an outstanding interpreter of great songs, while her name is mentioned frequently in the same breath as Nina Simone or Joni Mitchell. And rightly so. Her talents are on full display at her intimate concerts, but also for example on the major Studio Brussel radio station’s Morning Show: her brilliant vocals and guitar-playing are delivered in a reserved yet self-assured style, she drifts far away and yet remains present, in the moment. She brings this presence to the stage with a natural-born ease which she then seems to channel intuitively into songs with the elfin innocence of “Joe” or “Seasons Shift”. Other than that it’s just the cello of her friend Febe that sometimes appears, brought in by Mees sometimes for a few bars. That’s all Mees needs to make you forget everything for a few minutes.
