The Echo Presents
Meg Myers
Irontom

On her current single, the raging, unapologetic “Desire,” Meg Myers “juggles the pretty and the ugly perfectly,” as Stereogum noted, adding that with her “fierce-then-vulnerable voice, you have something that is as sweet as it is unsettling.” The Nashville-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter has consistently worked that dichotomy in her music, exploring the tension between dark and light, sweet and sour, and sex and death in her cathartic songwriting.

Her richly powerful voice, which can slide on a dime from a feathery trill to an anguished howl, is the perfect instrument with which to express her brooding, fiercely raw lyrics about craving what’s just out of reach. The words are bolstered by the layered guitar-synth soundscapes she creates with her collaborator and producer Dr. Rosen Rosen.

Released in April 2013, Myers’ debut EP Daughter In The Choir gave listeners their first taste of such ferocious anthems as “Monster,” earning her rave reviews and comparisons to female iconoclasts like Fiona Apple, Sinéad O’Connor, and Alanis Morissette, though Myers cites Tracy Chapman, Joan Osborne, and Heart’s Ann Wilson as inspirations, along with Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, and Trent Reznor
