About

Meri Ziev, Vocalist

Ocean Ridge, FL (Palm Beach County)

Meri Ziev’s love of art and music began as a child in Pearl River, N.Y. Her father was an artist and the first in the neighborhood to have an 8-track player in his Buick Riviera. Meri began singing in the car to Barbra Streisand & Frank Sinatra music, listening to the Big Bands on the radio, and enjoying show tunes on the living room console.  She was a flute-playing "band nerd" in middle school and high school.  "Now, as a vocalist, when I perform and I see someone’s eyes sparkle, a head nod, hear a giggle emerge, watch a tear form, or notice someone mouthing the lyrics, I feel a sense of shared humanity.  Evoking emotions, conjuring sensations, prompting reminiscences, these are what elevate the show.  Instead of just a spotlight on me, the focus is on the audience.  I know I am contributing to the community.  If I can’t experience the joy of engaging others, I might as well stay home and sing in the shower!"

Meri Ziev has a great voice, filled with emotion!”

— Dick Robinson, Founder of Legends Radio, The Connecticut School of Broadcasting, and The Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook
