Sami Mei is a vibrant singer/songwriter from Metro Detroit whose style blends pop and rock with touches of jazz and soul. Mei’s powerful voice lends itself to her upbeat arrangements, at times giving her music a somehow timeless quality. She was inspired to pursue music after getting hooked on a video of Elton John’s iconic guest appearance on “The Muppet Show.” Mei started writing her own songs and playing piano at age 8, then picked up a guitar several years later so she could perform a broader range of material. She continues to be passionate about performing and has appeared at such venues as The Fox Theatre and Madison Square Garden. Already working on recording her third CD of original music, Mei somehow finds time to work with charities, lending her talents to events for the Youth Action Board, Gleaner’s Food Bank, and Kids Kicking Cancer. In her spare time, Mei enjoys photography and prefers shooting city and landscapes over portraits. Her hope is to travel as much as possible and explore the world to find even more sources to tap for her music. The talented teen already has the old soul of a seasoned explorer, so the future holds endless possibilities for discovery.
