Lost Ones-Songs & Stories
If you would like Meghan to print another run of 'The Lost Ones', email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her so! 'In a time when the corporate music world continues to serve up cookie-cutter artists singing songs with lyrics straight off dime store greeting cards, it's gratifying to have an artist like Meghan Cary around.' --- The Global Muse Music Magazine 'I could say that these rootsy, country-tinged songs bear echoes of Springsteen, Lone Justice, Stevie Nicks, Deana Carter's 'Strawberry Wine', and even Blind Faith. But why not just say it simply? Meghan Cary writes great songs and puts them across with integrity, beauty and class.' --- kosmicblues.net 'The ability to inherit the persona of her characters makes it a fascinating listen, a glimpse of what lies not just in her heart, but in all of ours.' --- Rapid River Meghan Cary's music has draw comparisons to Shawn Colvin, Stevie Nicks, Blind Faith and even Bruce Springsteen. An award-winning songwriter and a natural on stage, Cary was named Billboard Magazine's Critic's Choice for Best Newcomer when she hit the music scene. But 'an evening with Meghan Cary' is more than great music; it's an intimate theatrical experience that brings her audience along on a rewarding emotional ride. In review of a recent acoustic concert at Harrisburg, PA's Whitaker Center for the Arts and Sciences, Mode Weekly wrote: 'Meghan Cary managed to pry open the rain clouds with nothing but six strings and a heart.' In her latest CD, Meghan attempts to capture some of the magic of her live show on CD. 'The Lost Ones - Songs and Stories' is just that - a compilation of songs and the stories that bring them to life on stage, recorded in the studio in one take with simple guitar/vocal arrangements. This CD is the first in a series of 'fan CD's' to be recorded in this 'songs and stories' format. 'The Lost Ones' takes a trip down memory lane and resurrects songs that were fan favorites in the past but have somehow slipped through the cracks of the 40 minute set format. These are songs that were (almost) lost along the way. Here's what Meghan has to say about her latest offering: 'The thing is that I recorded this CD for you guys - the folks who have been listening since way back. It's an EP of songs that were 'lost along the way'...the ones I stopped playing over the years for one reason or another. I pulled them out and brushed them off and recorded them along with the stories that always introduced them. It includes the entire Texan Trilogy ('Thursdays', 'Waiting', I Gotta Go'), The song I wrote for Deb and Adrian's wedding (which I know a lot of you never heard even once!), the fun (if perhaps politically incorrect) 'Baby Got Back', and a handful of others. I call it 'The Lost Ones - Songs and Stories'. This is the first in what I hope will be a series of short CD's recorded just for you guys. My first 'thank you' to you for being the spirit behind the music since the beginning. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it.'
