The Agency Group’s Tim Borror, Music Industry Veteran Steve Davis and Artist Manager Velda Garcia announce the debut of new music and live performances by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Meghann Wright.
The three singles, Can’t Carry Water, Cocaine and Left My Heart In Brooklyn are set to be released digitally on February 25th and will be accompanied by a series of new dates supporting Lisa Loeb and folk/country/punk musician Jon Langford.
The official video for the first single, Cocaine, was recently filmed and set to release to coincide with the release of the singles.
Meghann’s songs are largely inspired by her adopted hometown of Brooklyn, where her DIY ethos has caught the eye of the music industry and the hearts of fans. Can’t Carry Water has the weight similar ballads try for. Its wounded-soul country-folk ascends to something poignant through adding layers of guitars and wavering vocal harmonies that would make Emmylou Harris grin. Left My Heart in Brooklyn is similar, but the warmth she feels for the eponymous borough keeps it lighter, letting it shift from blue to hopeful. Then there’s Cocaine, an ode to self-emancipation and benders that stretch to daylight. The song’s gleeful vulgarity kicks you in the throat, but ends reminding you that no matter how great the blow and whiskey are, the broken heart remains.
“Meghann stands out from the current pack of female singers today with catchy songs, a unique voice and a very diverse style of influences that make her music right at home with indie-rock, country, blues, and acoustic-set audiences,“says Borror, “I’ve put together a team of some of the best in the industry who will help me develop Meghann’s career. Our focus is building Meghann’s name and value through her music, social media and in the press while I work my relationships within the live music world to grow her audience. We have an active group of labels who are watching Meghann’s growth and are confident of her future success.”
Joining Borror in the development of Meghann’s career is Industry Veteran and former Atlantic Records Executive Steve Davis, and emerging artist manager Velda Garcia.
A regular fixture on the New York City music scene, Wright is well known to the community as previously the host of the Parkside Lounge Open Mic Party and founder of The City And The Heart, a community supporting unsigned female singer/songwriters in the New York City area. Currently Meghann is the curator of Whiskey Wednesdays at Over the Eight in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. All of this along with playing countless shows throughout New York, Meghann has worked relentlessly to build a name as an artist with something to give back to her city, her craft, and her conscience.
