Meskerem Mees is a Belgium-based singer songwriter. Her latest song is called The Writer which simultaneously explores the personal and the interpersonal.

The lyrics are so wonderfully observed in The Writer that I felt I had to share it with you. Halfway between biography and autobiography, Meskerem fills the song with authentic emotion and confessional detail. Her delivery is delicate and compelling, accompanying herself with the scantest of acoustic guitar.

Taken from her debut album Julius, The Writer is a song you simply have to discover for yourself. Check out its beautiful video below and keep an eye out for Meskerem’s name. One day soon, it will be all over the world.
