SoloPopSinger/Songwriter

La Mer creates a dreamy, definitive melodic ecosphere of deep, benthic reveries that immerse you in a soft world of love, starfish, and addictive songs. Heartfelt, catchy melodies carried by a voice that is sexy, angelic, soulful, and full of sweet surrender. -Patrick O’Heffernan, Vents Magazine

Biography

Los Angeles based singer/songstress La Mer has taken every opportunity to spread her musical wings and experiment with different sounds. From her time spent on Broadway in New York City to the underground Art party scene in Brooklyn, to her touring days with the band The Mumbles, she’s allowed life to be her education in both songwriting and sound. After taking a break from performing and touring, La Mer took time out of the social scene for research, introspection and self discovery, shifting her focus to songwriting and recording.
She recently returned home to LA, positioning her compass in the spring of the Venice renaissance. Settling in as Venice’s own gritty hula girl, La Mer has been making quite a splash with her little blue guitar and lulling melodies, attracting attention of local industry veterans and local venues. With the help of Grammy Award winning producer and engineer Andy Kravitz, La Mer has solidified the direction of “Anchor Baby” to make for a truly unique sound.

Lyrics

Closer

Written By: La Mer

I was never good at hiding,
thought that I could rest the night in things we do for love.
I just want to learn to soften
my lips my heart, my eyes, then maybe I could see
all that you believe in me.

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.

You saw all the rage beneath me,
swallowed it and then released me
Things we do for love.
It's warmer in the space between us
In the distance I can feel you touch me like no other lover
Taught me strength
now I'm stronger

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.

Let it live and let it go now, but don't forget a thing
The reasons not to show it cannot hold onto this feeling
I'll let it flow into me....

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.

Anchor Baby

Written By: La Mer

I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

You know well I like sweet things,
you can also tell I need a lil bit mean
so swallow me up in your undertow
I can't resist the hand that pulls me down~

I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

You fed my darkest dreams with blood
cause you know my wedding night would come
Although I dressed myself in white
I was a nocturne red by the evening light~

I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

I just wanna melt inside
the darkest parts of your quiet night
my love is a flame, the deepest ocean
I wanna show you my devotion~
