When we face the shadows within ourselves, and integrate them into our everyday day existence, they become our biggest gifts.

Classically trained, she has performed around the world singing in 7 languages. Her goal as an artist is to make music that is healing, truthful, powerful and honest.
Her music is both soft & threatening , warm & cold, earthy & digital. Born with Celtic blood, her ethereal and bold voice floats on visceral drums of battle & strings of hope, giving you comfort & spitting fire. Meara brings her influence of folk, baroque pop, Celtic and classical music into the NOW and gives it an edgy & futuristic twist, taking the listener on a journey.
She draws upon influences from classic artists like Kate Bush and Enya, with contemporary elements remindful of Aurora, Ruelle and Florence & The Machine.
"I always sang other people's music, yet dreamed of writing my own. I wanted to step out of that box, face my own shadow and create the dream of my own music. I want to encourage others to face their own shadows and pursue their dreams - whatever they may be."
