Singer Songwriter Meiko Hits the Road with Hanson! Plus “THE BRIGHT SIDE” Due Later This Year


Acclaimed singer-songwriter MEIKO will be hitting the road with Hanson for a series of dates set to kick off September 4th at the Showbox in Seattle (itinerary below). The shows will see Meiko previewing material from her upcoming album, The Bright Side. Recorded with producers Styrofoam (Postal Service, Of Montreal) and Jimmy Messer (Neon Trees, Kelly Clarkson), The Bright Side will be released later this year.

Fueled by hit single “Boys With Girlfriends”, which shot to the top of the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Singles Chart, Meiko’s self-titled 2008 debut entered the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Album Chart at No. 1. The Washington Times praised the record for its “batch of catchy, acoustic-based tunes about love and heartache,” which included songs like “Hawaii,” which Spin magazine hailed as a “Song You Need To Download Now,” “Reasons to Love You”, which was featured in an episode of the award-winning TV series “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Said And Done,” which aired during episodes of “One Tree Hill” and “The Cleaner.”

She toured endlessly in support, sharing stages with the likes of Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson and Jewel, to name but a few. She recorded a stunning version of “All Of Me” for His Way, Our Way, iTunes’ exclusive collection of Frank Sinatra covers and originals, and was also featured on Crystal Method’s Divided By Light, singing lead on a track she co-wrote titled “Falling Hard.”

Meiko fans can also find rare live recordings and B-sides available as free downloads at
