Dear Me

Dear Me


Dear Me is raw, emotional and powerful. Their music features the powerhouse vocals of Nikki Machin, backed by solid rhythms and often haunting lyrics, yet manages to stay upbeat. Some influences include Fiona Apple, Florence + The Machine, Metric and Anna Calvi.


The band formed organically through several jam sessions at a local open stage hosted by bass player, Daniel Richard. This helped the group develop a very natural way of working on new material, usually presented in the form of original works by lead vocalist Nikki Machin, in which each member would compose their own instrumentation. Very soon, they were being asked to play at various local venues and the offers just kept coming.

The band really began to hit its stride in the summer of 2012 when requests from larger and better known venues, such as Etobicoke's Rockpile, began to trickle in. Having had some experience with these types of venues the band realized that its sound was best suited to a slightly different environment. They decided to focus their efforts more directly on the festival circuit.

Since then Dear Me has spent its time working towards perfecting their live performance, expanding their repertoire and recording their first EP.
