“‘Back In The Game’ is a ‘going out’ anthem for the broken-hearted. You know, brush your knees off, get back in there and kick some ass!” – MEIKO
MEIKO | Meiko’s songs find common ground between indie pop and coffeehouse folk, with her distinctive alto vocals sharing the spotlight alongside acoustic guitars, pianos, and unique arrangements. A longtime songwriter, Meiko was raised in the small town of Roberta, Georgia, where she discovered her love for public performance after singing at a Southern Baptist church. She then took up the guitar, playing her father’s Gibson before receiving her own instrument as a birthday present.
At the age of 18, Meiko left home for greener pastures, eventually resettling in Los Angeles and scheduling recurring performances at the Hotel Café, a popular haven for L.A.-based singer/songwriters. Meiko’s self-titled album appeared in September 2007. Eventually every track on the album would find song placement in such high-profile TV shows as “Grey’s Anatomy”. She soon found herself receiving a considerable amount of attention on the digital folk music charts.
The Wally Gagel (Zella Day, Family of the Year, Best Coast) produced new single, “Back In The Game”, was co-written with Gagel and Blondfire songstress Erica Driscoll. It will be released through WAX LTD on March 16.
