Dutch-language indie pop; a touch of synths, warm sounds, dreamy harmonies, and honest lyrics. MEAU, the solo project of singer, songwriter, and producer Meau Hewitt (22), creates small, pure songs about everyday topics such as love, personal development, and loneliness. Her warm voice and dreamy harmonies land where acoustic instruments and electronic sounds meet. Some big inspirations for Meau are Eefje de Visser, Jeremy Zucker, and Holly Humberstone.
After her first EP ‘Kalmte’, MEAU’s successful single ‘Dat heb jij gedaan’ was released on September 10, 2021, which became, among other things, 3FM Megahit, Qmusic Alarmschijf, Radio 2 TopSong, and MNM Big Hit (Belgium). After the release of ‘Dat Heb Jij Gedaan’, things went very fast, she spent several weeks at number 1 in the Dutch top 40 and the Flemish Ultra Top. She is a frequent guest at the Metropole Orchestra, The Streamers, and many TV and radio programs. In 2022, MEAU will perform live at festivals such as Paaspop, Pinkpop, and Pukkelpop (BE). In addition, she also performs in many Dutch and Flemish venues during her first sold-out club tour.
Meau has been writing and making music since she was young. As a child, she already took singing and piano lessons, so it’s not surprising that she decided to follow the music education program at the Herman Brood Academy. During the first lockdown, she focused completely on writing Dutch-language lyrics and producing her own music. This is how she really found her own unique MEAU sound.
