ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Moving on from the confines of the major label machine, Meiko has returned to form with Moving Day, her most honest release to date.

“Every song on the album is about moving in some way, shape, or form”, Meiko says. “Whether it’s moving to a new place, moving into different relationships, or just growing up and moving on emotionally, I love the idea of constant growth and change. This album represents some key moments of personal ‘moving days’ I’ve had in my life over the past 10 years.”

Moving Day is closer sonically to Meiko’s 2007 self-titled debut than to her two follow-up albums. “I wanted to get back to my roots”, Meiko states. “(2012’s) The Bright Side was a little more poppy, and Dear You was darker and more electronic. I wanted to keep it simpler and more intimate this time around, without depending on so many bells and whistles. Just like my first album, Moving Day is written entirely by me, with no A&R guy involved.”

Meiko enlisted Nashville-based producer/musician Joshua Grange (Sheryl Crow, k.d. lang) to handle production responsibilities. “I met Josh at a breakfast place in Nashville about a month after I moved there from Los Angeles. We instantly got along, and he invited me to check out his studio. The next day we met up, totally nerded out over guitars and music, and wound up recording a song about an hour after I’d arrived. I decided right then and there to make a full album with him.”

On recording Moving Day without a record label’s involvement, Meiko says, “Music should be easy. It’s about art, not egos. When a committee comes around to tell me I’m not creating correctly, or that it could be better another way, self-doubt comes into play and poisons the well. Moving Day, thankfully, has none of that. I made this album with no weirdness around to make me feel inadequate. Josh Grange listened to all my ideas and helped me make them a reality. I couldn’t be happier and more proud of how it came out!”
