Meaghan Smith took an unusual route to the music business.
She can't read music, for one thing. She went to school to study animation for another. Yet, along the way, she took her hobby of playing the guitar to work with her, giving impromptu performances of her songs in the stairwell of the animation building for her friends. One thing lead to another, and she just won the Pop Album of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards
in Canada for her recording called "The Cricket's Orchestra."
Her sound is a mixture of the music of the 20s 30s and 40s with the pop songs of today.
Her videos often feature animation. A good place to start is "A Little Love"
and also "I Know."
Her song "Here Comes Your Man"
was featured in the film 500 Days of Summer.
She is also a pretty good artist!
