Meg Meyers: The Bio 

Like many burgeoning singer-songwriters, Myers got her start in Los Angeles, California. However, she was born and raised in another musical hub – Nashville, Tennessee. While Nashville tends to be a breeding ground for country acts, Myers was more interested in pursuing a career-making indie-pop. Thus, she felt more at home in the creatively progressive world of LA. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Meg began living with her then-boyfriend. She got a job at a coffee shop in Hollywood, trying to make ends meet while pursuing a career in music.  During her early days in LA, Myers would take any possible opportunity to perform. She and her boyfriend eventually broke up, and she met producer Doctor Rosen Rosen – real name Andrew Robert Rosen – shortly after. He signed Meg to his label, which helped her move forward in the music scene. Myers and DRR shared songwriting duties for all of Meg’s earliest releases, including the songs on her Daughter in the Choir and Make a Shadow EPs.

Daughter in the Choir and Make a Shadow

Working alongside DRR, Myers released Daughter in the Choir, her first EP, in 2012. The EP features the track “Monster,” which was accompanied by a popular music video. The video was a collaboration with director A.P. Fisher and producer Filippo Nesci, the latter of whom is a notable producer who has worked with artists like James Vincent McMorrow and KOAN Sound.  Daughter in the Choir’s track “Tennessee'' gained the attention of a notable British DJ, Mary Anne Hobbs. Hobbs, one of the hosts of the popular BBC alternative radio show 6 Music, praised Tennessee and shared it with her massive listener base.  In 2013, Myers made her major-label debut with the single “Heart Heart Head,” which was released via Atlantic Records. Shortly after, she released a second single, “Desire,” which was accompanied by another popular music video. Both of these singles were subsequently featured on Meg’s sophomore EP, Make a Shadow, which came out on February 7th, 2014. After releasing two highly successful EPs, Myers was starting to become a mainstay on the alternative airwaves. “Desire'', one of the singles from Make a Shadow, was getting consistent airplay from major indie and alternative stations, and it ended up reaching No. 17 on the Billboard Alternative charts. Myers gained even more new fans when she went on tour in support of Broods for a string of high-attendance shows in North America. With Broods, Myers played in Brooklyn, Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles.  At this point, Myers also started gaining traction on the festival circuit. After the release of Make a Shadow, she played at Lollapalooza, Buzz Beach Ball, Bunbury Music Festival, and Governors Ball Music Festival, performing for massive crowds at each. 

Sorry

In 2015, after much anticipation, Myers finally released her debut full-length album, Sorry. The record was produced by her frequent collaborator Dr. Rosen Rosen and released via Atlantic. It has been described as a blend of pop, rock, and electronic. The LP peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard US Top Alternative Albums chart and No. 21 on the US Top Rock Albums chart.  After Sorry, Myers’ next release was another full-length LP, titled Take Me to the Disco. At the time of the album’s release in 2018, Myers had made a decisive departure from Atlantic – the new record was instead released via 300 Entertainment. One of the tracks on Take Me to the Disco, “Numb,” is a song that Myers describes as being about the pressure she felt to meet the demands and expectations of Atlantic, one of the biggest record labels in the world.  Take Me to the Disco Peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums Chart. It reached No. 40 on the Top Rock Albums Chart. Working with 300 Entertainment, a much smaller indie label, Myers felt far more creatively liberated. The album is also a milestone for Myers as it is her first release to be produced by Christian Langdon.

Conclusion

Ever since she moved to LA to pursue a career in music, Meg Myers has been making waves. She’s passionate, driven, and extremely creative, and each of her releases has brought in plenty of critical and commercial success. Myers shows no signs of stopping anytime soon, and she continues to be an electrifying musician in the studio and on the stage.   Sources: Meg Myers On How Her Queerness Inspires Her Work | NYLON Meg Myers Finally Closes The Door Of A Traumatic Past | American Songwriter Transition & Light in the Darkness: An Interview with Meg Myers | Atwood Magazine
