Meg Warren has been writing hooks for most of her life. Whether it was winning provincial music composition contests when she was a kid in Newfoundland, to grinding it out in bars across Canada during her time in her award-winning band Repartee, to now hushing hundreds with a powerful stark melody in a downtown performance space - the venues may be different, but one thing stays the same - melody.
After starting the multiple award-winning band Repartee in 2009, they criss-crossed Canada for 8 years, driving the van to hundreds of shows across the country. Her time in Repartee lead her to stadium shows with the likes of Mariana’s Trench and Shawn Hook, to festival stages with Weezer and Ok Go, to loading in and giving it all to any (and every) grimy bar in Canada that would take them.
A high point in her career came in 2016 when what started as a little song idea about fighting for the people you love called ‘Dukes’ became the most added song across all radio formats across Canada in July of that year. Repartee would go on to win the 2017 Indie Music Award for Pop Artist/Group of the year.
Now, as a solo artist and songwriter, Meg has already made some impressive strides, including a co-write with Alan Doyle and juno-nominated Fortunate Ones, which can be found on the latter’s 4-time ECMA-nominated album, Hold Fast. She also co-wrote LeRiche’s single ‘Hair Elastic’ last year.
Continuing her versatility in music - Meg has begun work as a producer and engineer - both co-producing and co-engineering her upcoming EP, ‘A Thousand Ways’ with ECMA-winning producer Dan Ledwell. She also engineered, mixed, and co-produced Newfoundland singer-songwriter Virginia Fudge’s upcoming EP which is slated for an early 2021 release.
From her early days cold calling venues a lifetime away from her apartment in St. John's to grimy east coast dives to arenas and now the recording studio - Meg's persistence and drive is unwavering as she embarks on another chapter in already an impressive career. She can't wait to see what's next.
