There’s a certain unmistakable raw and gritty quality behind the music of Meg Myers. Take the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter’s track, “Monster.” It's a visceral declaration of dismay regarding an unsatisfactory relationship inspired by a real-life ex-boyfriend. Lines like, “My love too much, your love, not enough” are even more striking paired with Meg’s growling delivery evident in her acoustic performance as part of the Vans series.
Meg actually grew up in Tennessee'��s famous Smoky Mountains. Her dad was a truck driver, while her mom was a devout Jehovah's Witness. After her parents divorced, Meg'��s mom remarried and relocated the family to Ohio. Her education was anything but conventional. "I didn't go to high school; instead I built forts," Meg declares on her site. Her Tennessee roots always remained intact even after she found her way to Los Angeles. The dynamic artist penned a sort of offhanded state tribute with an explicit love/hate vibe on her Daughter In The Choir album, which was creatively and earnestly produced by Doctor Rosen Rosen. We love Meg's slightly aggressive and unabashed style combined with her unflinching willingness to expose her emotions.
