About Meghan Patrick
Canadian country singer Meghan Patrick comes across as a bit of a hybrid of Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain: a cowgirl with spunk mitigated by girl-next-door cheer. All this was evident on Grace & Grit, her 2016 debut for Warner Music Canada, but prior to that she demonstrated her progressive bluegrass roots as the lead singer in the Stone Sparrows.
Patrick is a native of Bowmanville, Ontario. She learned to play guitar at an early age before picking up the banjo, and she played both in the Stone Sparrows, a progressive acoustic quartet based in Toronto. The Stone Sparrows independently released an EP and an LP prior to their 2013 split, after which Patrick set out on her own as a solo act. That year, she won KX96's Star Search competition, which led to a publishing deal with Ole Music in 2014.
Patrick signed to Warner Music Canada in 2015 and began working on her full-length debut with a host of collaborators, including Vince Gill, Justin Niebank, and Chris Baseford. The first single, "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" (one of several songs on the album co-written by Nickelback leader Chad Kroeger), saw release in February 2016, two months before the arrival of her first album, the aforementioned Grace & Grit, which peaked at 26 on Canada's country chart. After spending 2017 supporting Tom Cochrane on tour, Patrick returned in early 2018 with her second album, Country Music Made Me Do It. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
