Meiko Contest!

Meiko will offer her highly anticipated third full-length album entitled Dear You on October 14th, 2014 via Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group.

Dear You follows Meiko’s acclaimed 2012 release The Bright Side, which climbed to #1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart as the buoyant hit single “Stuck On You” garnered the attention of influential tastemakers worldwide and found numerous placements in film and on television.

The eleven songs on Dear You consist primarily of her private, unsent letters. "I like writing letters: love letters, pissed-off letters, breakup letters," she explains. "I rarely wind up mailing those letters, though. Instead, I turn them into songs. Dear You is an album mostly filled with those unsent notes." Meiko turned her secret letters into a revealing, eclectic collection of songs including infectious alt-pop ("Be Mine"), electronic lullabies ("The Cloud Song"), minimalist indie rock ("Deep Sweat"), and digital folk ("Wake Up").

Dear You’s decidedly darker tone is, in many ways, the flipside to the sunnier disposition fans found on The Bright Side. Longing, betrayal, heartbreak and reprisal are intimately acknowledged and explored here, supported by Meiko’s increasingly stripped down, sophisticated songwriting. Recorded in her adopted hometown of Los Angeles and produced by Jimmy Messer, who also helmed a good chunk of The Bright Side, Dear You’s sparse soundscape beautifully underscores the album’s highly confessional tone and Meiko’s uniquely personal vocals. The pair handled the vast majority of the production themselves only turning to drummer Don Heffington (Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow) and the Grooveline Horns (Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews Band) for cameos on a handful of tracks.

To celebrate the release of Dear You, PopEntertainment.com, Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group and 42West are happy to announce our Meiko contest!  Winners will win the new CD!  Also like us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates about upcoming giveaways!
