Spending most of 2015 in the U.S.A., MEG MAC has been working hard on her forthcoming album and touring the U.S.; recently completing a coast-to-coast North American tour with D’Angelo and the Vanguard and her own sell-out show in New York.
Now one of Australia’s most promising young exports, MEG MAC announces she’s heading back home for an Australian tour to celebrate the release of highly anticipated upcoming single ‘Never Be’.
Meg’s soft-spoken demeanour belies a big stage presence and an even bigger voice, delivering starkly cinematic lyrics filtered through a Detroit/Memphis inspired sense of dark soul. That voice serves as the centrepiece of her 2014 debut Meg Mac EP that pricked ears, turned heads and sparked a seismic wave of activity in the U.S. UK and Europe.
Last year, triple j named MEG MAC ‘2014 Unearthed Artist of the Year’ and she scored three songs in the triple j ‘Hottest 100’. Overseas, MEG MAC is generating overwhelming critical acclaim; listed as the number one SXSW act to watch out for on Buzzfeed with glowing write ups and reviews from The New York Times to Rolling Stone and Flavourwire. Her debut US single ‘Roll Up Your Sleeves’ recently jumped into the U.S. Billboard adult alternative top 30 chart and was listed of as one of the American National Broadcaster’s (NPR) favourite songs of 2015; NPR syndicates to a network over 900 public radio stations around the U.S.
Produced by M-Phases MEG MAC’s brand new single ‘Never Be’ will be released to coincide with her triple j presented national tour; it’s possibly the last chance fans will have to see her this year in Australia before she heads back overseas. MEG MAC also plays Splendour in the Grass at Byron Bay this July.
