Bio

Premiering on Home & Hosed, ‘Cherry Days’ evolved from an American road-trip through the desert with her partner, and is an uplifting reminder about the importance of appreciating the moments in between. San Mei elaborates, “I was thinking, we always have so much to do, work towards, strive for; we’re always chasing something… and I thought how nice it was in that particular moment that for once, we had nothing to do and nowhere to be. It made me think that it’s okay to just enjoy ourselves for the sake of it every now and then, because life can be hard and it's the sweet, easy moments that keep us going.”
‘Cherry Days’ sees San Mei jumping behind the desk for the first time on producing duties with long-time studio drummer and collaborator Michael McCartney on board for engineering.

A move inspired by wanting to be more in control of seeing her ideas right through to completion. “I had the chance to put on my producer hat and really take the lead in the recording process. It was a really good challenge for me, pulling apart the song, having to make hard decisions for the best outcome, and making sure the song came out at a level I was happy with. I recorded it with the help of my friend Michael McCartney, whose beautiful drumming you've heard on my recordings. He's a really gifted musician and artist and I think we made a really good team and came up with something special,” explains San Mei.

i'm liking this sweeter side of san mei. you still get that spinning, dreamy sensation but it's got some restraint and builds in such a good way. there's a bit of jack river about it one too.
