Meri Cetinic was born June 15 1953 in Split, Croatia. Her family background is from Blato on the island of Korcula, where her parents were born, moving later to Split at the beginning of the 1950s, when Meri was born. Growing up in a humble albeit harmonic family atmosphere, alongside a father who was an electrician, mother housekeeper and two older brothers -- Ante and Boris -- she began to show signs of exceptional musical talent, singing in particular, at a very early age. As a child she began to perform in public, and during elementary school took all the lead roles in school performances.Meri completed her secondary school education at the Music High School and graduated from the Teacher's Academy in Split with a major in Music.
At an early age she began to listen to Black American musicians, loving both Blues and Gospel music. At 14 she won 1st place with the song "Warm and Tender Love" by Percy Sledge, at the "Raspjevanom proljecu" (Springtime) Festival in Split. At 15 she became a member of the CHE band as an organist. Meri, at that time, played the first Hammond organ in the city. When she was 17 she stopped with CHE and began to sing in the group Delfini (Dolphins) as a solo vocal singer, touring for the first time across the former USSR. Her repertoire consisted mainly of songs by Janis Joplin, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and similar groups and singers.

Soon after she began to sing with the Delfini she broke with the group in order to enroll into the Teacher's Academy in Split, and studied voice with Prof. Branka Ristic. At the Academy she meets Slobodan M. Kovacevic with whom she forms the group More (The Sea), wherein Meri plays piano and is the solo vocalist. Alongside S. M. Kovacevic, Meri becomes a composer and arranges music for the band. They release several singles and the album "More" which made great success, as did its cover song "More". Furthermore, at the "Splitski festival", (Split Festival) the group achieves two more successes with the hit songs "Gdje god da podeš" (Wherever You May Go) and "Samo simpatija" (Just a Sweetheart). After several successful and flourishing years with More, Meri begins here own solo musical career.
