EDITORS’ NOTES

The singer/songwriter strips down, gets intimate, and gets hitched on her fourth album. And that newlywed bliss emanates an unmistakable glow, which she shares on opening number "I Do," an instant wedding must-have with strings gracefully slithering around her Feist-like coos. But Moving Day is not only about life’s big moments, and it transitions gently into the simple pleasures and apprehensions that follow. Riding smooth grooves throughout, Meiko remains a calming presence, even when loneliness kicks in on smoky ballad "Big City" or when her knees weaken on the silky, Stereolab-evoking "I Can't Tell."

Meiko Returns To Indie Form

FirestarterIT

Moving Day marks singer-songwriter, Meiko's, first independent release since her self-titled debut in 2007. It also brings her sound back full circle to that incredible album. It is absolutely beautiful. Things are definitely more slowed down from her previous label releases, which were amazing but tended to fall more on the pop side. Moving Day is pure, unadulterated Meiko, from the opening bars of "I Do" to the close of "Little Baby". This is a must-have in your collection if you are a fan of Meiko, or indie folk-pop in general.

I remember Meiko's debut album. Totally indie - and Totally amazing.
When she got picked up by a Label, "something" faded from her music.
But her new album "Moving Day" is indie again... and it's "Meiko" again.
Yeah!!
This is the sound and feel that I originally fell in love with.
It's amazing to finally have her back.
Get this album. It'll make you smile.

About Meiko

Meiko's songs find common ground between indie pop and coffeehouse folk as her distinctive alto vocals share 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. Boosted by her Internet popularity, Meiko signed a contract with MySpace Records/DGC in June 2008, and a re-release of her endearing debut album followed in September. Amid a campaign of Internet videos and promotion, the follow-up album The Bright Side arrived in May of 2012.

In 2014, Meiko unveiled a moodier, bass-heavy sound with her third full-length album, the Jimmy Messer-produced Dear You on Fantasy Records. The Fantasy-issued Lovers & Fighters EP from early 2015 was followed in October of that year by a self-released EP, Live Songs from the Hotel Cafe, which featured live renditions of several fan favorites as well as a new song called "Perfect Fit." Finding further success without a label, Meiko issued her fourth LP, Moving Day, in the summer of 2016, which reached number nine on Billboard's Heatseekers chart while also cracking the Top 200. In 2018 she released Playing Favorites, a covers LP that featured re-imagined versions of hits by the Cranberries, Otis Redding, Erykah Badu, Duran Duran, Rick James, and more. ~ Andrew Leahey
