I recently heard a song called Bad Things on an American TV show and found out that it was an American singer called Meiko. She is not a new artist by any means having solidly worked on her music since 2007, gaining a big following. Her songs have been played on numerous TV shows over the years and you have probably heard one of them. Bad Things was a single that was released this year following on from her 2012 album, The Bright Side. It is a moody and sultry song with a cool musical vibe. I really like Meiko’s songwriting style and her laid back singing. It is definitely great chill out music, with some captivating lyrics hidden in there for those of us who like to over analyse!
After digging around a bit more I found some more of Meiko’s music that showed a different side to her songwriting and musical style. Have a listen to Stuck On You below. This is the type of artist that can work just as well with an acoustic guitar playing a solo gig as with a full band, electronics and all the bells & whistles. Speaking of acoustic music, you can get your hands on a free download of an acoustic version of Stuck On You, which is from the new You and Me EP. Get the Free Download here! Links to downloads of the new EP and previous albums are available in the sidebar.
