Meyer will also release new music this year to follow-up her 2014 album Warrior Heart, which was released under her own KLI Records and received rave reviews from all over the globe including grabbing the attention of NPR’s Felix Contreras (co-host of Alt.Latino) and Jasmine Garsd as one of their “musical treasures we uncovered.”  The Wall Street Journal premiered the video for the title track “Warrior Heart” in which they said the singer  “Pairs Strength, Vulnerability” – Watch it HEREEntertainment Weekly premiered the song “Human Divine” calling it, “…bouncy, ebullient electropop that should appeal to the considerable number of people who are still waiting for Grimes to write another ‘Oblivion.’” – Listen HERE.  The haunting song “The Hunt,” with its video shot in the beautiful Andes – watch it HERE, premiered on The CW show Reign.

Meyer’s new music should arrive later this year.  She will be co-producing this new album with producer Bill Lefler (Dashboard Confessional, Ingrid Michaelson), who she worked with on Warrior Heart, as well as other producers.  She’s written and recorded songs in Los Angeles, Santiago, and Sydney. Meyer says, “This album is much more raw, much more guitar heavy, with bigger distortions and disruptive sounds, while still maintaining the quality that I have always wanted to generate with music which is to take people through different emotions and hopefully inspire some interesting visuals in their minds.”

A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Meyer has performed on stages and festivals around the world including C/O POP Cologne (Germany), Lollapalooza (Chile), Gustock (Chile), Pulsar (Chile), Sziget (Hungary), AM-PM “AMérica Por su Música” (Cuba), BAFIM (Argentina) and many more and lead extensive solo tours through the United States.  Her music has been heard around the globe having appeared on films and ads for brands such a Blackberry and Ralph Lauren, TV series such as “Reign,” “Parenthood,” “Private Practice,” “Drop Dead Diva,” etc. and several MTV shows.
