Yael Meyer's new album Everything Will Be Alright is the perfect musical confidante. Her lyrics deal seriously with universal emotions - love, fear, sadness, joy - but like the album's affirming title, Meyer makes us feel okay about our vulnerabilities, even enjoy them. Tastemaking radio stations and critics across the country have fallen in love with her simple, sensual music. With melodies this sweet and production this sophisticated, what's there not to love?
Chile-born Meyer has been playing music since she was five. You can hear the long years in the effortless of the title track from Everything Will Be Alright, which was featured in Chilean film director Nicolas Lopez's F**k My Wedding (the sequel to F**k My Life, which also used her songs). And it isn't just her native country that has realized how beautifully Meyer's music meshes with visuals. She's had placements on Private Practice, Life Unexpected, Drop Dead Diva and MTV's Awkward.
2012 finds Yael bringing her music to the masses in both America and Chile, most prominently as part of the Lollapalooza Chile lineup, where she played alongside Björk, Foo Fighters, TV on the Radio and Band of Horses.
"I'm really excited to join the ASCAP family," Meyer told us a few days before she officially became a member. "I love that you guys believe in the people that you work with." The feeling's mutual, Yael!
