It’s hard finding musicians that don’t sound like robots these days. So, whenever you find a rare talent like Meg Myers you just want to shrink them and stick them in your front pocket—ok maybe that’s a little weird—never mind. But, we do appreciate great talent when we discover it! We are very proud to present: Meg Myers. She’s the fresh air we all need in music this year. She plays bass, amazing guitar, and boy can she sing! Seriously—this girl has pipes. Did we mention that she’s skilled with nunchucks? Until she releases her new album, this Tennessee native is going to be causing a major impact in the weeks to come (Doctor Rosen Rosen included). So, sit back and get to know her in this exclusive interview with Cliché magazine!
Cliché: Hi Meg! Thank you for taking the time to talk to Cliché!
Meg: Hi! Thanks for having me.
Cliché: For those who are trying to get this answered: Who is Meg Myers?
Meg: I’m a musician originally from Tennessee who moved to L.A.
Cliché: So, you’re a musician originally from Tennessee who moved to LA. What made you decide that Tennessee wasn’t cutting it for you?
Meg: Well, since music’s my thing, I knew it was either New York or LA. I chose LA and to be honest, I can’t wait to get back to… not LA.
Cliché: How has the change of scenery been for you so far for you and your music?
Meg: I’ve been in LA for over five years and there have been lots of bad times and also lots of good times. But you take the good. You take the bad. You take them both, and there you have the facts of life… The facts of life.
Cliché: Right now you’re on pretty much everybody’s radar. This time last year did you think you’d be where you are now with your music?
Meg: Yeah, it’s been incredible. I’ve hoped for this kind of musical support for so many years if for no other reason than just to be able to quit my shitty waitressing job… It feels amazing that it’s actually happening. REALLY HOPING that I get to quit my job SOON. Like real soon. Like now. Keep digging my stuff everyone!
Cliché: Not just Adelaide but you put in a lot of emotion in your songs. Which one of them for you was the hardest to write emotionally?
Meg: Definitely Monster.
Cliché: Ok, everyone has that one person that influences them in some way, or something that inspires them to write music. Do you have either of those?
Meg: Yes, although it’s not always the same person or thing. I find inspiration in so many different ways, it’s hard to pin down.
Cliché: The music video for Monster is being passed around the internet EVERYWHERE! It’s very creative and dark in a way. Where did the idea for it come from?
Meg: My producer, Doctor Rosen Rosen and I both had the vision to do something really simple but powerful for Monster because we wanted to keep the focus on the music. When we first met, we bonded over our love for intimate videos like Nothing Compares To You by Sinead O’Connor, Untitled by D’Angelo, and Out Getting Ribs by Zoo Kid, so this just made sense.
Cliché: And it turned out amazing! Ok. Brand New Year. What can we expect from you this year? Album plans?
Meg: In the immediate future, my EP is coming out by early February, then I’ll be focusing on playing live shows and writing new music!
Cliché: So, I’m sure many reading this are going to want to know where they can start standing in line for tickets for your show. Any tour dates??
Cliché: Well Meg I really appreciate the time you took out of your schedule to answer some interview questions with me and I wish you the all the success you deserve in your adventure in music! Hope to talk to you again in the near future!
Meg: Thanks so much! And thank you for the support <3
