MeMe Detroit presents her single launch at Actress & Bishop with ‘How She Runs’, a beautifully woven tale of lust, love and fear of rejection. Working as a DJ, MeMe took inspiration from witnessing the UK nightlife from outside/inside the DJ booth.

The indie grunge girl draws inspiration from a reservoir of influences to produce a record of sparkling and energising quality. Having grown up with 90s grunge and Britpop high on the household playlist and a box full of hand me down 7” classics on repeat; The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Blondie to name but a few.

MeMe was approached by up and coming director Stephen Murphy to compose an ‘eighties feel’ track for his new feature film My Saviour. The single was recorded with engineer/producer Alastair Jamieson (The Jesus and Mary Chain, Duran Duran) at Park Studios, Birmingham and mastered by Jon Astley at Close To The Edge (The Who, Peter Gabriel, Tori Amos, The Rolling Stones, Stereophonics, Judas Priest).

The band consists of MeMe Detroit, vocals/guitar/synth, Lewis Smith bass and Barney Such on drums. MeMe and the lads have played over 200 gigs across the UK, including a live streamed show in a treehouse, O2 Academy and Jurassic Fields festival. This wealth of live experience shaped and moulded ‘How She Runs’ into a sonic force not to be missed.

Plus support from THE HOLY MEN

The Holy Men are a mercurial collective entity comprised of drummer Scott Nolan, bassist Chris Hand and identical twin brothers James and Lucas Webley. Their message is bittersweet, their music is brutally delicate. Having performed only once before to great acclaim, the band have chosen this event specifically to perform once again.

Plus support from CHLOE MOGG

Delivering a mixture of musical influences, Chloe Mogg creates a musical journey with her songs and own arrangements of covers. As a young singer-songwriter with “parrot” hair, she brings life and colour to her performances.

Known for her quirkiness and smile, she haunts the audience with her ability to tell a story with only her voice, acoustic guitar and “strange” effects.
