What is it about Meg Myers?
Those close to me (and those who pay any attention to my social media posts) know that I’m a pretty big fan of Meg Myers. Her music is a bit of a departure from what I’m typically playing on road trips, so many have inquired what exactly it is that has me hooked. A mention from Mike Shinoda first brought her work to my attention, which should come as no surprise to the aforementioned groups, but what’s kept me coming back for more?
To be honest, I’ve had a hard time nailing that down myself. It might be the dark tone displayed in so many of her songs, her admittedly twisted charm, or maybe it’s the fact that she originates from the same areas of East Tennessee that I grew up in. I couldn’t say for sure, but I personally feel it has something to do with the way she blends up so many genres into a sound that she has effortlessly crafted as her own. It’s a sound that I loved in “Monster,” the track originally shared by Shinoda, and one that I’ve continued to love as it’s evolved in her latest releases.
