Meg Myers

Fusing confessional, deeply personal lyrics with music that walks a tightrope between pop, edgy electronics, and dour, emotionally forceful rock, Meg Myers is a singer and songwriter based in Nashville. Myers made her Billboard 200 debut in 2015 with her first album, Sorry, a set steeped in dark-hued pop and rock. While the album and its title track enjoyed chart success, Myers desired more creative freedom, and moved to the independent 300 Entertainment label, which released her second full-length effort, the expansive and dramatically dynamic Take Me to the Disco, in 2018. After partnering with Sumerian Records, Myers reshaped her approach again for 2023's Tzia, with her bold vocals accompanied by powerful electronic soundscapes. Myers was born in 1986 in Nashville and raised in Tennessee's Smoky Mountains. Her 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. Meg began learning to play guitar at the age of nine, and not long after relocating to Florida and looking for a means of expressing herself, formed a band with her brother. She learned to play guitar and bass and began writing songs. When she was 20, she left Florida and moved with her boyfriend to Los Angeles. It wasn't long before Myers 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, she 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. 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 she began 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 the Governors Ball. In mid-2015, the title track from her full-length debut, Sorry, made the Top 20 of the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. After its release that September, the album reached number 79 on the Billboard 200. Following the success of her first record, Myers relocated to her birthplace of Nashville and signed with 300 Entertainment. In July 2018, the label released the LP Take Me to the Disco, featuring the song "Numb," which earned plenty of play on radio and streaming services. The album was produced by Christian "Leggy" Langdon, marking the first time he went into to studio without Doctor Rosen. In 2019, she released her re-working of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" as a single, and while it initially received little notice, buzz on her performance spread by word of mouth and nearly ten months later, the track made it to number one of the Alternative charts, Myers parted ways with 300 Entertainment to sign with Sumerian Records, and in November 2020, she released a pair of EPs, Thank U 4 Taking Me 2 the Disco and I'd Like 2 Go Home Now, that featured outtakes from the Take Me to the Disco sessions as well as new material. The two EPs were given a physical release on a single CD the following December. In 2022, Myers issued a new single, "HTIS," which included contributions from Luna Shadows of the Naked and Famous and Carmen Vandenberg of Bones UK. The track was the first preview of Tzia, released in March 2023, a set of typically bold and revealing songs from Myers with adventurous electronic arrangements and production.
