  Introducing Young Unknowns. If you’ve ever dreamt of having your heart broken in New York, this music might push you a little closer. The new Brooklyn project are scarce on information, and have no more than 400 listeners at the time of writing, but their style is one of smooth, jaunty pop, with an astonishingly […]

Young Unknowns on Music 4 The Masses

While they are relatively unknown, Young Unknowns have released one of the more soothing tunes I’ve heard within the past few weeks.

What stands out most is lead Meredith Meyers’ airy yet powerful vocals giving […]

Young Unknowns on Wild Honey Pie

While Young Unknowns might seem like an appropriate name for, well, a young, relatively unknown band (even their first post on Facebook was “Who the @#$! are the Young Unknowns?”), this may not stay the same for long. The four piece from Brooklyn are starting to make waves in the NY music scene with their glassy, edgy, yet […]

“Singer/songwriter Meredith Meyer has a very memorable voice that instantly stays with you on her four year in the making sophomore record It’s Spooky To Be Young. Her voice is very Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan and Aimee Mann like all balled into one, which is a recipe for success. “

“Meyer is a more multi-dimensional than the expected woman-with-a-piano stereotype that we get of female singers…It’s her slightly creepy lyrics that combine with the music to make her work stand out.  That’s definitely the case with “Video Game Girl”, a track that should be required listening for every adolescent boy about to get his first […]

“Anything ‘produced, recorded, and mixed” by Bill Racine has probably got something strong going for it…and sure enough, this L.A. songbird has talent.  Whether on piano or whispery guitar, her gorgeous throat, not far removed from fellow LaLa nightengale Miranda Lee Richards, is as reassuring as a mother’s to a sick baby.

With Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mates of State) turning the knobs, L.A.’s Meredith Meyer spent four years creating her debut LP, It’s Spooky to Be Young. The affable singer has […]
