Spotlight: Meghan Trainor

Over the weekend I discovered Meghan Trainor thanks to one of our writers, Sam!  He played me her single, “All About That Bass” and it was my first time hearing of her…and I was impressed!

“All About That Bass” is a refreshing addition to today’s music scene, as Meghan sings the playfully sassy body-positive lyrics over a retro sounding beat.  Her vocals have a unique quality, she sounds old school yet modern.  The doo-wop on influence on the song is clear; she almost sounds like a cross between Bruno Mars and Adele.  Except way more fun than Adele, and (just a bit) sassier than Bruno.

Meghan is from Massachusetts and is just 20 years old.  Before releasing “All About That Bass” via Epic after being signed by L.A. Reid, she was signed to a country music label in Nashville.  “All About That Bass” is so far the only song she’s officially released, so it’s exciting to watch this young girl storm onto the scene with such a great entry track.  It’ll be interesting to see what the rest of her music sounds like.
