Reasons to Love You- Meiko

Meiko is an indie-pop artist who recently released an album under the Myspace Records label earlier this August. Meiko is not new to the music scene- Meiko's last album was the #1 folk album on iTunes and got more than 200,000 downloads. Her sound consists of plucky guitars & lyrics alongside her pop beats, and coupled with her lovely youthful voice, it makes for quite an enjoyable experience. The more I listen to her songs, the harder time I have on choosing which ones to post, so I'm going to go with an unprescindented 4 links today. Enjoy!

I love Meiko! She also has another new track out called "New Road" which is a duet with AM, who toured with her on the Hotel Cafe earlier this year. They sound great together!
