Bio

A singer and songwriter whose sound fuses powerfully confessional lyrics with music that walks a tightrope between accessible pop and dour, emotionally forceful rock, Meg Myers was born in 1987 in Nashville, Tennessee, and raised in Tennessee's Smoky Mountains. Myers' dad was a truck driver, her mother was a devout Jehovah's Witness, and both were amateur musicians; when her folks divorced, Myers' mother soon remarried, this time to a fellow Jehovah's Witness, and they decided to take Meg (then 12 years old) and her siblings out of public school and relocate to Florida. The family led a nomadic existence for several years as the children lived under the strict guidelines of the faith and their stepfather. Myers began learning to play guitar at the age of nine, and not long after relocating to Florida, Meg, looking for a means of expressing herself, formed a band with her brother. Myers learned to play guitar and bass, and began writing songs; when she was 20, she left Florida, and she and her boyfriend moved to Los Angeles. It wasn't long before Meg and her beau broke up, but she stayed in L.A. and waited tables, worked on her music, and played out as often as she could. In 2012, Myers was spotted by producer and remixer Doctor Rosen Rosen, and after signing her to a production deal, he soon took her into the studio. Later that year, she released her first EP, an online release called Daughter in the Choir, and it earned enthusiastic reviews and plenty of YouTube traffic for the song "Monster," though the track's strong lyrics kept it off most radio outlets. Myers soon appeared on Last Call with Carson Daly, one of her songs was used in an episode of CSI: NY, and she began appearing at some of L.A.'s most prestigious venues, including the Viper Room, the Bootleg, and the Troubadour. In 2013, Myers landed a deal with Atlantic Records, which issued her second EP, Make a Shadow, that same year. The EP earned enthusiastic reviews for its musical sophistication and emotional force, and Myers was soon spending more time on the road, headlining club shows, opening for noted acts such as the Pixies, Royal Blood, and Alt-J, and playing major festivals including Lollapalooza and Governor's Ball. In 2015, Myers released her full-length debut album, Sorry, featuring the single "Lemon Eyes." ~ Mark Deming
