Meg – whose music has been compared to Fiona Apple, NIN, PJ Harvey, Alanis Morissette – spent 2014 on tour with Broods and Royal Blood, and opening for The Pixies at their NY and LA shows. She gained attention with undeniable performances at SXSW, Lollapalooza and Governors Ball. Her latest single “Desire” spent months last fall in the top 20 at alternative radio and the hauntingly sexual video turned heads: http://youtu.be/bR5u9jb0PJE.
<3 LOVE FOR MEG MYERS <3
“…Governor’s Ball gave female songwriters more richly deserved slots…early arrivals heard Meg Myers hurling imprecations at the destructive power of love and desire: With seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J. Harvey, and a voice that built from laments to screams, she was cathartic even under noonday sunshine.
-THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Myers, whose music is flavored by both alternative/grunge as well as singer/songwriter fare…”
“Los Angeles-via-Tennessee singer/songwriter Meg Myers juggles the pretty and the ugly perfectly, as you can tell by listening to her new single, “Desire.” It opens with a menacing drift then bursts with melodic fireworks. The piano soars, yet the bass-lines creep… Add in lines about skinning, killing, and being thrown to hounds, sung in Myers’ fierce-then-vulnerable voice, and you have something that is as sweet as it is unsettling.”
“When Meg Myers is singing onstage and her eyes roll back in her head, when she jerks spastically, it’s her own version of Method acting, an attempt to channel the “dark, sexual” emotions that come from deep within.”
“The lovelorn facets of Myers’ dark, intimate music might evoke Sinéad O’Connor or Fiona Apple, but there are also moments of tumult and menace that trace back to her teenage fascination with grunge bands such as Nirvana and Alice in Chains.”
