Today is the day that Meredith Shaw releases the much-anticipated follow-up to her critically-acclaimed debut record Place Called Happy. Recorded at New Scotland Yard Studios, “Trouble” is the first EP in a series of three to come out over the next year. It features renowned guest artists and producers. Shaw’s first single and title track “Trouble” feature East Coast indie darling Joel Plaskett. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the lyric video for “Trouble” here. In celebration of the release, Meredith would like to invite all of her hometown fans to a special live performance at the legendary Dakota Tavern in Toronto on May 30.
Treasured Canadian musician Joel Plaskett, The Trews John-Angus MacDonald and personal hero of Shaw’s, Gordie Johnson of Big Sugar, are among the Canadian boys Shaw recruited to help produce the series of new EPs. “It means so much,” says Shaw. “In this industry, you hope the people you respect will give you a thumbs-up to show you that you’re on the right track. I am following my own creative heart, but I couldn’t have more admiration for these three guys, and their opinion and approval is amazing.”
The first single “Trouble” (co-written by Plaskett) is rooted in Nashville where Shaw spent time writing in 2012. The lyrics paint her as a mature lyricist, as she plays with humor while projecting different sides of her personality. The musically complex single also demonstrates an impressive progression of Shaw’s vocal abilities and is a perfect fit for her high energy live show.
Celebrated songwriter Simon Wilcox worked with Shaw on ‘Have You Met My Heart’, revealing another soul-baring facet of Shaw’s personality. Their session in Los Angeles produced a powerful tune that retains an element of playfulness, within the confines of sadness, loneliness and regret. While ‘Call It a Night’ shows off Shaw’s breathtakingly soulful vocal power. The straightforward yet sensational ‘pick-up’ song was co-written by Patrick Ballantyne (her primary songwriting co-conspirator) and is currently in heavy rotation in CBC.
