First/Last – Meghann Wright

June 2, 2016

“With an equal love and influence from a wide variety of genres, Meghann Wright’s songs of love, liquored memories, heartbreak, and resilience resonate with anyone listening. The Brooklyn-based Singer/Songwriter is a songstress that finds her way into all of our hearts, traveling a path paved with lost loves through a life of contrasts that can be felt and heard the moment you push play.”

Meghann Wright is a country pop singer-songwriter from Brooklyn who is wrapping up this leg of her Nothin’ Left to Lose tour this weekend and hits Pittsburgh on Friday (6/3) at Diesel Club Lounge on the Southside. Compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt and Pasty Cline, Meghann brings a fresh approach to the alt-country genre with her stunning harmonies and grandiose choruses. I want to thank Meghann for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • Michael Jackson’s Dangerous.
  • Your last album bought?
  • Austin Lucas’ Between The Moon And The Midwest.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • Braid’s Frame & Canvas.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • Smashing Pumpkins’ Machina, it was basically rehashed Mellon Collie, I am a HUGE SP fan and was seriously heartbroken when it came out. I think I only listened to it twice.
  • First concert attended?
  • Jimmy Page + Robert Plant at Blasedell Arena in Hawaii, my dad took me when I was 7.
  • Last concert?
  • Besides these shows we are playing on tour – Baby Metal at Playstation Theater in Manhattan right before we left New York.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Weezer + Flaming Lips at an outdoor arena in CT, instead of each playing their own sets, they were both set up on each side of the stage and took turns playing songs, it was awesome.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • I go to a lot of underground hardcore, metal and punk shows and sometimes those are pretty bad.
  • Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • Low rent, cool bridges, and french fry sandwiches.

Thanks, Meghann. That Weezer / Flaming Lips show sounds cool. But I have to ask, what did the other band do while one was playing? Did they chill and watch?
