I am Mee, that is, Alexandra and #iLoveMee
Outsiders might observe that I live a very ordinary life, as a working Mama and wife raising my 3 children, but, this website gives you an insiders view into my extraordinary life. A glimpse at what I spend my time creating. Mee Music is my life’s work, and includes, music composition, creative direction for artistic imagery, collaborations with producers, live performance, costume design and so much more…
If I could cram all the poems, songs, parties, images, games and fun, I have ever created over the last 22 years into this website for you, it would be like one of those overwhelming 2ft long sub sandwiches you liked the look of but couldn’t possibly finish!
The “I love Mee” video on the video page, sums up how I feel about my creative purpose, inherited from my parents, my creative spark is born out of the need to celebrate life in all it’s wonder, a life that would otherwise be lost in the dull and dreary drudgery that life’s routine can bring.
Life is anything but ordinary, It’s extraordinary because I choose to make it so… “sewing melodies and weaving word, so that stories and music can be heard.” Surrounding myself with a homemade kooky make-believe world, I have created paper clouds on sticks, yellow welly boots with wings and much more, all to celebrate the wonder and beauty of life through play and a little nonsense.
I have ridiculously enormous colourful dreams and aspirations, that can scare me and bring out all of my insecurities, which is why I have to practise being gentle and kind to myself all the time everyday, hence the mantra – #iLoveMee
I practise self love, because it has been my balm through all of my life’s difficulties and enjoyments. I believe that trying to love ourselves, especially the darkest parts of ourselves, is the first step to taking responsibility in the world and making powerful changes for the betterment of all.
My lyrical inspiration is guided by the message #iLoveMee – more self love for me, means more love to give others.That is surely something worth investing in. I encourage my children, sister, husband, friends, in fact anyone and everyone to #iLoveMee themselves.
I am extremely blessed to be working with my new band, Ryan Omamori (aka Ryan The Gecko), who shares the same values and is comfortable genre hopping with me through inspirations of trip hop, drum and bass, dance, electronica etc, currently we are working on completing the album Mind Matters, the EP which is already released for you to buy on the music page, follow the link!
Fusing Ryan’s new world sounds of the digital era, with my layers of Eastern European influenced harmonies and catchy hooks, your ears and hearts are taken on an ancient journey through a techno motherboard of bleeps, pulsing white noise chatter and Sub Bass Band width that carries your sacred soul through a gallery of lyrically woven tapestries and sound wave storytelling.
Welcome to ‘Mee And The Band’ Land,
May Magic Moments Begin…
