Despite living in various corners of the country, Nic, Steven, and Tom spent years writing music together one voice memo at a time––it wasn’t until the the three moved to New York City in 2017 when they were able to come together and perform their songs for a small crowd in Brooklyn. The crew’s indie pop melodies, bolstered by intricate guitar leads and driving bass were quickly grasped by local crowds, and word of their infectious on-stage camaraderie and energetic live performances quickly spread, leading to a series of sold out shows throughout downtown Manhattan, including landmark venues like Mercury Lounge, Pianos, The Bitter End.
Inspired by the dynamic pace of their first year in New York, the band decided to retreat to an abandoned church in North Carolina for the month of September, where they recorded an original 10 song LP, Good to See You. Working with Brooklyn-based producer Tyler Brown, whose work draws from Electronic Neo-Soul and R&B, helped the band hone their original sound. The songs were then mastered by Grammy award-winning engineer Dan Millice (A$AP Rocky, Al Green, 50 Cent), whose meticulous approach gave Meyru's music a polished finish. The intention and craft applied by the whole Meyru team has manifested in a debut album that sounds beautifully focused.
Formed in 2014, Talkie consists of drummer Eric Martin, guitarist Christopher Isaacs, and brothers Bradley and Matthew Hagmann –all of whom met while touring in previous acts. The result of their combined experience and chemistry is a fresh brand of rock and roll that’s as influenced by 60′s brit-invasion as it is 90′s alternative. Talkie's debut album, the self-recorded, self-produced Hablas, was released for free in the Fall of 2015. SF Weekly said of the album: “a mixture of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and The Flaming Lips, which is to say, there's a lot of harmonies and sweet, sweet guitar-driven melodies.” The band's debut peaked at #92 on CMJ, #49 on FMQB, and garnered features from Radio K (Minneapolis KUOM) and Alt 105.3 (San Francisco KITS). Talkie's sophomore album, Fundamental Things, is scheduled for release April 27th, 2018. PlaylistPlay describes the new album as "the perfect album for the (Summer) season; a dazzling, dynamic, jaunty, fun piece of work."
