Creator Spotlight: 5 Questions with Meri Amber


Geek Singer/Songwriter Meri Amber has written songs about Xena, Goku and Cats & the Internet. And with her new album release Meri is our Creator Spotlight this week, so take 5 and listen up!

What are you playing, reading or watching right now? I’m currently not hooked on any games (woo! Brief period of productivity :P). I spent a bucketload on comics though, I’m following way too many DC stories. In terms of what I’m currently watching, it’s the latest season of Doctor Who, it’s been so good so far and I can’t wait for the next episode!!

What is Retro Sherbet? Why is it important? Retro Sherbet is my latest album release, It’s a nineties themed album with songs about everything from Minesweeper, to Xena, to Bubble Tape. It’s a pretty important part of my repertoire as it has some songs (including ‘Tamagotchi’, ‘Block Breaker’ and ‘Catch’Em All’) that are some of my favourites that I’ve created to date.

Apart from your stuff what should everyone be looking out for in local Australian Pop Culture? The indie comics scene in Australia is FANTASTIC. When you go to a convention, whether it’s a Supanova or local convention, drop by the Artist Alley and check it out. People are creating some truly phenomenal stuff and it’s absolutely worth giving it a chance.

Major prediction for Pop Culture 12 months from now? Fidget spinners will hopefully be gathering dust, VR will creep further into the mainstream and there will be more sequels 😛 Haha.

Best last thing you ate? A thick shake from Doughbox Diner. Before you say that’s not a food, try it. It’s almost pure ice cream, I always have it with a spoon rather than a straw. The best.

And that’s 5! Meri will be performing at next month’s Sydney Supanova (in addition to Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane) but you can check out her gig dates or listen to the Retro Sherbert album via iTunes and Spotify.

Also, you can subscribe to Meri’s YouTube, if you are a fan of love songs to the TARDIS.
