Though she's new to the scene as a front-woman, Megan Cox has been a part of the New York music world for several years playing with Charlene Kaye, Jay Stolar, and touring with YouTube sensation Team StarKid.
"The Song stylings of Megan Cox embody the New York Indie scene, reminscent of Ingrid Michaelson with an earthy overtone. Her orchestrations, between the piano, strings and vocals, create a lovely blend - such a full and rich sound that fills you up. A particular emphasis on voice is necessary to point out, the delicate balance of harmonies are wondrous, a snippet of church filling every snug corner of your ears. The beauty of her vocal stylings is a lulling enchantment dusted over the crowd." -All the Thoughts that Fit to Print
The music on "W" is weighty yet delicate, driving and robotic at times - yet completely organic; equal parts Joni, Sufjan, and Flaming Lips. It stems from years of classical training, a fascination with electronic sounds, and the desire to blend the two to make experimental yet completely accessible music.
"The genre label I’ve been using for my music is Art Pop. With an emphasis on layers of sounds and deeply personal, poetic lyrics, it pushes the limits within popular forms. It’s not windows down, bumping summer music. It's more like a nostalgic fall day in your room with a record on, drinking tea, thinking about all of the other fall days that have reminded you of this one." - Megan Cox on SuccessCircuit
"W" was engineered and co-produced by Megan's brother, Adam Cox, at the Brooksfield Gentlemen's Club in Detroit, Michigan. The studio is housed in an abandoned middle school, formerly called the Malcolm X Academy. Though it now has barely more than running water, it is a sanctuary from the downtrodden city. Brooksfield has full analog recording capabilities, a Moog sponsorship, and every type of keyboard instrument you could imagine - which is fitting for Megan's earthy yet electronic sound. Almost every instrument on the album is performed by Megan or Adam, who were both raised as competitive Suzuki piano students but found a home in today's multi-faceted music industry.
