FEM85 Embracing The Nerd Music Niche with Meri Amber

music niche nerd music

For Meri Amber, finding a music niche was natural. Growing up wanting to be in the girl band, Bewitched, she drew inspiration from the American Comic Con scene. Her music is a mix between bright pop with 90s punk rock and is inspired by Comic Con, Dr. Who, Lego and more. She writes, records, self publishes, and performs everything on her own and has even made music for video games.

Speaking of finding your niche, Starting today, April 24th, we are doing our 5 Days to Your First or Next 100 Super Fans. It’s totally free to register and includes training for all 5 days this week delivered to your inbox.
