About Merique

Merique is a Singer/Songwriter based in Cape Town, WC, South Africa

Merique began her solo singing career at age 14.
In 2010 she studied BSc Dietetics and completed her first year with distinction.

In 2011 she took a music course in Somerset West and finished the year top of her class.

In 2012 she held two choreographed, sold out shows to represent South Africa at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood, California where she went on to be the 18-24 Division and Industry Award winner.

In 2013 she completed her VIDLA Certificate in Contemporary Vocal Teaching with Upper Merit all at the same time choreographing and playing a lead character in the Afrikaans musical “Skalie Skinnerstories tref Stoffontein”

In 2014 she decided to focus on song writing and music production. She wrote, and produced stories and songs for a Children’s Cancer Organization and did some free-lance volunteer work as vocal teacher in Richmond and De Aar.

She has since been writing, composing, producing, choreographing, acting, judging and focusing on her singing career.

In 2015 Merique co-wrote and recorded her Album, “The Coming Dawn” at Studio Seven/Lunacy Records, in Oklahoma City. It was released in January 2016.

Merique’s album was on the ballots for the 59th Grammy awards and continues to draw attention.
Not only has her album been play listed on numerous radio stations and music steaming sites worldwide, but her singles, “Butterfl-eyes”, “Legacy” and “Rivers” are also abuzz in the music world, with “Rivers” being awarded a Bronze Medal in the Global Music awards.

At a rugby game in July of 2016, Merique performed to a crowd of 30,000 people at the Emirates Park Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa. This has been her biggest performance to date and will certainly not be her last.

2017 was a busy year for the artist with performances and writing songs for her new album. She also created a few art projects, one of which was a 26 square metre train mural for a Coffee Shop near Paarl, WC, South Africa.

The future continues to hold a lot of promise for this blossoming artist and she has been finishing up her new album for over a year now. Merique will be back in the studio in early 2018 with plans to release her album in the Fall.
