Gifted, award-winning, chart-topping… cool. There are plenty of apt adjectives that apply to Meghan Patrick. But perhaps the most meaningful descriptor for the acclaimed country singer/songwriter is authentic.
Patrick is a musician who always tells it like it is in a voice as gorgeously persuasive as they come. So, when she describes her electrifying third full-length studio album Heart on My Glass as “the most ‘me’ record I’ve ever made,” it’s a profound statement given the sincerity that has come before.
It’s also a handy metaphor for summing up the new album’s many sonic textures and flavours, some familiar to long-time listeners and others new— blues and gospel anyone? — but all yanked straight from Patrick’s rich reservoir of influences.
