Carly Meyers first burst onto our attention span while at High Sierra Music Festival 2012 as part of the “backing” section of the Mike Dillon Band. She sat in on Skerik’s Horn-o-copia artist workshop later that weekend, and suddenly we realized that we would be seeing an incredible amount of this young performer in the future. She immediately stood out as someone that was giving her all on stage, whether that was part of Yojimbo (her other band from New Orleans) or part of Mike Dillon’s regular touring band. She also just took a quick trip to the Pacific Northwest to do three shows as part of Skerik’s Bandalabra.
She’s been making waves wherever she can, and thankfully Pete Merriman got a chance to sit down and chat with her while she’s on her rise in the scene. In the interview, they talked about her musical influences, songwriting, the city of New Orleans, her plans for 2014, even her thoughts on dubstep. Check it out. –Editor Read more…
