Meaghan Smith

singer-songwriter // indie folk // holiday

After hearing Canadian songwriter Meaghan Smith’s sweet and carefree songs it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she grew up in a house of music, with her piano-teacher mother, bassist father and three talented sisters. Her affinity for the sounds of the “˜20s, “˜30s and “˜40s features heavily in her music as well. While the jazz-influenced indie folk of Meaghan Smith embraces instrumentation from older eras, the Canadian songwriter gives it her own contemporary twist (Meaghan herself dubs it “modern vintage”). Regardless of what you’d like to call it, her unique take on the holiday classic, “Silver Bells” and her original winter song, “It Snowed” is just what you need to get you in the holiday mood!

Traditional holiday songs go “modern vintage”.

    Great Voice! I’ve never been a big fan of Silver Bells, but I love this version!

    Very interesting phrasing, particularly her take on Silver Bells.

    Wow. Meaghan is amazing. I love her voice and style. She will go a long way.

    Her Christmas EP, ‘Wish Upon A Star’ quickly became a family favorite on our drive across the US. Holiday music is definitely one genre that chafes against excess modernization, IMHO.

  5. Matt :

    The faux-instrumentals kind of creep me out.

    Seeing you for a day ago, few moments, here an ABC 2 station, neat.
    Looking forward to hearing your CD. Wish you success.

    I did a post previously, but I have listened to more of Meaghan since then, and she is just amazing. I saw a vid of her song ” if You Ask Me “, and it is so great. Plus, I just love ” Silver Bells “. Keep it up Meaghan. God bless.

    Loved the show at the Ironwood. When will you come back out west? I’ll be there.
