The electro, dirty-pop music of Me And My Nightmare is the creative innovation of the American DJ Mea Fisher; vocalist, producer, and pioneer of female spun vinyl in clubs worldwide. Mea, the visionary behind Me And My Nightmare, was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, and has lived and worked in Chicago, and Los Angeles, where she currently resides. Mea rose to international fame working the Chicago house scene during the late 90s, with her radical sex appeal, elaborate stage costumes, dynamic stage presence, and the addition of her powerful live vocals to her DJ sets. DJ Mea became an international stage sensation, touring the world as a solo performer, and collaborating with multiple famed producers. Her first globally released DJ mix compilation was released in 2000, featuring her own singles as well as her own live vocals layered throughout the mix. After numerous collaborations & career debut singles, Mea moved to Hollywood where she discovered a darker version of herself, creating her own band MEAndMyMachine; the live techno band with crunching guitars, impressive synth lines, and electronic drums, intertwining dark melodies and empowering emotion. Mea’s gain of industry prominence eventually attracted the attention of the legendary, sexed-up electro-rock/industrial band, Lords of Acid’s frontrunner Praga Khan. Her collaboration with the techno innovators was an opportunity for Fisher to explore new territory in expressive feminist realms, produce multiple genres of music, and add her voice to each one differently & uniquely. In her newest ensemble Mea fronts Me And My Nightmare, bringing to the table talent that has toured the world making notable dents in underground EDM music scenes, and performances loaded with attitude, energy, and beautifully layered vocals.
