ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eat Your Heart Out is the first full-length album for Meg Mackey. The album was recorded in May of 2011 at Twisted Penguin Studios in Spenard, AK with the help of Engineer Ken Sease, Producers Evan Phillips and James Dommek Jr. of The Whipsaws, and Mixing Engineer James Glaves, of Ghost Hands. The album promises to have widespread appeal with plenty of thought-evoking material as most of the songs were written while Mackey was working as a dog-mushing guide on the Juneau Ice Fields. For Mackey, music is the way to communicate emotion. Eat Your Heart Out is clear proof of that.

“I’ve been in Alaska since I was 7 years old, so it is and always will be home.” That’s the reply you’ll be getting if you ask singer/songwriter Meg Mackey where her heart resides. The Anchorage transplant was born into a military home in Guam in 1984. She’s been on the move since, gathering inspiration that would later transform itself into brilliant songwriting. After moving to Alaska in the fall of 1991, Mackey was instantly enraptured with the outdoors and the untamed Alaskan wilderness. According to Mackey, working in the Alaskan wilderness will change a person’s outlook on what really matters in life. Mackey started playing guitar at the age of fourteen, and immediately fell in love with the instrument. She became obsessed with playing guitar, and was enamored with the ability to create sounds. Meg wrote her first song, “Tiny Toes”, at the age of sixteen, which describes a childhood experience of hers. Writing “Tiny Toes” opened up a whole new world for Mackey. She found that songwriting was a way for her to express emotion, and describe life experiences in a way she had never found possible before. The majority of the lyrics for the songs on Eat Your Heart Out were written in places that overwhelmed past the point of speaking, providing a chronicle of Mackey’s experiences and feelings about life in Alaska. Meg Mackey currently resides in Anchorage, Alaska.
