so maddy and i had the privilege of seeing the amazing MEC MAC a couple of weekends ago. she was pretty darn amazing and i wanted to just share my experience, and also enlighten those of you not aware of her talent.
i knew meg back in my waapa days (wasn’t that long ago really), and actually saw/heard some of these songs developing. it was really cool to see how much the songs had changed – and all for the better. the melodies are all so smooth. like they’re unpredictable but they sound right – not over done. i really appreciate it when a singer knows when to hold out a long note, or cut it short, and then use trills and runs for a little extra colour rather than flipping their way through the whole song. musically i was pretty impressed with what was done with only a keys player, bass player, and drummer. there were lot’s of electronic sounds giving it a sort of pop and r’n’b blend, with meg’s soulful vocals over the top. i’d say the highlight for me was hearing them perform ‘grandma’s hands.’ it was literally flawless. everyone around me was completely in awe of her and the band, and all so thrilled to be there with her. it was a serious honour and i was proud! aaaanyway, just wanted to share my lil experience witchyall.
