This Sunday sees the third of the ‘Summer Sunday’ series of five live music concerts taking place in Great Yarmouth market square. The Caribbean themed events aim to bring a bit of Jamaican sunshine to Great Yarmouth town centre and this week features Meera, a singer and songwriter with a unique sound and dynamic voice.

Meera is versatile singer and loves all genres of music, however her passion is reggae music and she has impressed with her rich sound and catchy hooks on reggae/dancehall riddims. Meera trained as a vocal coach in Hollywood where she had the opportunity to co-write a song with Evan bogart, known for writing the smash hit "Halo" for Beyonce. Meera has recently released her debut single titled "We Collide", a fresh sounding track with an RnB/Reggae Dancehall twist, which is produced by DASECA Productions.

Meera is being supported by Kolin Durier, a singer songwriter from Norwich.
