Meg Myers

Taken from SNSPost

It is pretty cool to be a young female musician from Los Angeles, but when your originate from Tennessee and are able to articulate through song the idiocy of hipsterdom suffocating the streets of LA, it makes you even cooler. This is Meg Myers, a super stunning musician who I cannot quite to seem put into just one box. She unravels a plethora of genres within her music; channeling Shirley Manson circa ’95 to a very sensual take on electronic blending into hints of blues peeking in and out of her songs.  She sort of reminds me of a new aged Alanis Morissette, with a hint of Alison Mosshart and a pinch of Emily Haines. Comparing her to a list of incredible artists still just does not do Myers enough justice. She has a very raw, natural but soothing voice. She is an absolutely perfect bridge between the atmospheric aura of Tennessee and the appeal that you have to have to even remotely make it in Los Angeles or New York. What it comes down to is that Meg Myers is an outstanding musician, and I cannot thank my friend enough for sending me her hilarious song “Tennessee” that mocks the hell out of any young adult trying to be unique in LA.
Myers has released an EP titled Daughter in the Choir, which is where her two singles “Monster” and “Tennessee” have sprung from.  There is also an insanely sexy Semothy Jones remix to “Monster” that is filled to the brim with dub and bass, yet still orchestral enough so it still sounds beautiful. She is about to start on a tour beginning in August, where she will be serenading the souls of the empty in the city she loves to sing about, Los Angeles. However, if you are not able to make it out to Cali, please enjoy the videos she’s released to both of her singles on her website. If you happen to be across the country, you would be a fool to miss seeing such a force. Hopefully she will realize that New York needs someone like her to shake things up a bit and make her way across America.

Needless to say, I have completely fallen in love with Meg Myers. Head over heels, total girl crush/band crush, want to be friends with her...and the whole nine. 
Please enjoy her music as much as I do. Cannot wait until this bad chick plays in NYC.
