Meg Myers is one passionate performer, and audiences can't help but feel what she's feeling at her emotionally charged live shows. The intensity in her recorded work is superbly amplified when she performs, resulting in a wildly satisfying concert experience for lucky ticket buyers. Her catalog is filled with gritty tunes about sex and heartbreak, from the yearning angst of "Desire" and the scream-filled aggression of "Head Head Heart" to the soft intimacy of "Morning After". Onstage Myers expertly communicates a huge range of emotions, delivering her songs with a raw voice that's wickedly fierce one minute and heart-wrenchingly vulnerable the next.
Singer-songwriter Meg Myers was born in Nashville and grew up in Tennessee's Smoky Mountains. As a teenager she discovered alternative bands like Nirvana and Alice in Chains and began writing her own songs and teaching herself to play the guitar, piano, and bass. At 19 she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career and spent the next few years playing local and working as a waitress. In 2012 she met producer Doctor Rosen Rosen, a prominent remixer who's worked on tracks by Lily Allen, Britney Spears, M.I.A., and Lady Gaga. He signed Myers to a production deal and the duo collaborated on her debut EP, 2012's Daughter In The Choir. After her song "Monster" gained traction online, she penned a deal with Atlantic Records and released sophomore EP Make A Shadow in 2014. Standout singles "Desire" and "Heart Heart Head" impressed critics with their fearless lyricism and dark themes, earning her comparisons to Fiona Apple, Alanis Morisette, and Patti Smith. Since then Myers has gained a stellar reputation on the live circuit with tours alongside Broods and The Pixies and show-stopping performances at Lollapalooza and the Governor's Ball.
