"Watch out Carrie Underwood" - Ken Scott (David Bowie/Supertramp)
As a CMA Ontario nominee for “Roots Artist of the Year” and recent Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase finalist, up and comer Mackenzie Leigh Meyer is already getting industry nods for her unique style and enchanting vocals.
Since the May 2018 release of her debut EP “Dive Bar Diva”, the Hamilton, ON native has caught the attention of quite a few country music fans. This included renowned producer Ken Scott (David Bowie, Supertramp) who exclaimed “ Watch out Carrie Underwood” after working with Meyer on EP power-ballad “Should Have Known”.
After spending 2019 touring the EP at festivals like Boots and Hearts, Havelock Jamboree and Lucknow’s Music in the Fields to name a few, Meyer headed back into studio to create new music. In October 2020 she debuted dreamy-love-ballad “Before You” produced by Jeff Dalziel (2019 CCMA Producer of the Year), who had invited Meyer to work with him after hearing the song at the CMA Ontario’s Demorama event in 2019. The song landed Meyer on her first two editorial playlists (Spotify - Live Country / Amazon - Breakthrough Country) and has garnered over 29,000 views on the accompanying music video.
Trading “lovey” for “sassy”, the pair again teamed up for Meyer’s latest single “Dial Tone”; a tell-it-like-it-is anthem for those who’ve had to suffer through conversations with dull, boring and ignorant people. Reintroducing Meyer to Spotify’s Live Country and Amazon’s Breakthrough Country playlists, the single has garnered over 165,000 streams on Spotify alone, making it Meyer’s highest streamed song to date.
