The Bright Side By Meiko
Not many new independent artists can claim that they’ve record a debut album from which each track is currently in or has been in rotation on major networks, but singer/songwriter Meiko is one of them. Her self-titled debut album “Meiko”, released in 2007, was a major success, and it seems as if the young talent isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Her album “The Bright Side” made its appearance in 2012, and the girl from Georgia (currently residing in L.A.) released her latest album, “You And Me” under the Concord Music Group label in January 2013, which music lovers of all genres and romantics will love. She has become a sensation, with a unique style, which includes strong musical and vocal content. The lady knows how to reach into your soul and touch you there, and music enthusiasts everywhere are so very happy that she does.
“The Bright Side”, an 11 track delicacy, showcases Meiko’s skills and does so impressively. Her breathy vocal style and powerful lyrics are sought after by music directors for television shows. one of the most popular with music lovers and music directors that place music on shows you’d watch on CW, or MTV t.v. programs. Meiko’s music production is a combination of pop, alternative rock, and even big beat retro (“I’m In Love”), and clever, super clean programmed 80’s drum beats with cool drum fills, that contrast beautifully with her voice (“Leave The Lights On”). The sounds of acoustic guitar and bass, and the electric piano fills out the sound of this particular project, in addition to the great vocal over dubs, and effects Meiko has layered over her lead vocals.
“The Bright Side” has a broad fan base appeal, and I guarantee “Lie To Me,” will be heard on a big show like “Vampire Diaries,” in the near future. But hey, why wait? Fortunately, listeners can choose from Meiko’s CDs and single releases on any of the major online retailers. If you’re looking for quality, authenticity, and music that fits any mood, you’ve come to the right place. “The Bright Side” gets a very strong recommendation from this reviewer, and I look forward to hearing “You And Me” soon.
