On a snowy winter night, stuck at home with the flu, Meg Braun recorded her first original tune â into her home answering machine â and a singer-songwriter was born.
Not so many years later, the philosophy major from Toledo, Ohio, found a home hosting the open mic at the legendary C-Note in the creative cauldron of NYCâs East Village. Charged up by the gritty energy of the city, with periodic escapes to peaceful SummerSongs retreats, Meg composed the songs for her debut CD, Tomboy Princess.
âMy inspirations come from a lot of different places,â Meg says. âOn this CD there is a lot that came from my childhood and teen years - what is personal can be universal - but a lot of my writing philosophy comes from the idea that you don't have to use facts to tell the truth.â
In this way, Tomboy Princess is rich in truth. In songs both sweetly melodious (âOnce Upon a Timeâ) and solemn (âNo More Happily Ever Afterâ) Meg uses the language of fables and folk tales to illuminate the modern world. Even a song taken from the headlines, âRunaway Bride,â assumes the bright halo of a fairy tale, while a straightforward coming-of-age story like âNew Orleansâ becomes a vision of wider worlds, both real and imaginary.
The strength of songs such as these inspired a bushel of folk-music royalty to contribute their talents to the project: Greg Greenway, Kevin So, Tom Prasada-Rao, Penny Nichols, bassist Freebo, slide guitarist Pat Wictor, percussionist Cheryl Prashker, and all three members of Red Molly. Tomboy Princess was mixed, mastered and partially recorded by Mark Dann.
âMeg's new CD is beautifully produced and really shows off her tough and sweet voice. Much funkier than your usual singer-songwriter effort, great stories and not a bit generic.â
â Kenny Edwards, Stone Poneys
