In the dimly lit corridors of contemporary music, Meraki Trice emerges as a non-binary, LGBTQ artist challenging the norms and crafting an extraordinary sonic tapestry that seamlessly weaves classic soul, pop, and hip-hop nuances.

Meraki Trice’s musical alchemy is a testament to authenticity and emotional universality. Each note, each lyric, invites listeners on a profound journey through the intricacies of the soul. Embarking on this auditory horror story, ‘Heart’s Fare’ crescendos with warm Rnb and soul refrains, culminating in funky climaxes that linger in the mind. Recorded in the artistic haven of Mexico City, the album’s production involved a collaboration of talents. Patrick Mitchel served as a vocal coach, TommyPapi handled the final mix, and Diandra Rivera contributed to the lead single, “Red Velvet Jacket.” Featured artists Aaron Aguilar and Emilio Baxter enriched the album with their compositions.
