New Release: Meiko – ‘The Bright Side’

 

One of the fortunate handful of artists to be discovered via MySpace, Georgian folk pop singer Meiko recently released her make-you-feel-all-gooey-inside sophomore album The Bright Side. And yes, her cooing vocal style is definitely reminding us heavy of one of our other favorite gals, Ellie Goulding.

While you may first think Ellie, don’t get it twisted – the sweet toned lass cites a slew of influences that include Patty Griffin, Sade, The Cranberries, Fiona Apple, Indigo Girls, Nina Simone, and Portishead, for starters.

For those unfamiliar, get a taste of Meiko’s sound via the below video for the album’s leading track “Leave The Lights On.” Quite forward lyricism from the sweet young lady – watch out for the nice ones!
