Alicia Myers (born November 20, 1957), is an American R&B musician. She started her music career with the band Al Hudson & the Soul Partners. Her first solo release, Alicia, was released in 1981 with MCA Records, and it was her breakthrough release upon the Billboard magazine charts, placing on the R&B Albums.
Nashville-born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Meg Myers makes her full-length debut with 2015's Sorry. The album comes on the heels of her two well-received EPs, 2013's Daughter in the Choir and 2014's Make a Shadow. As with those releases, Sorry once again finds Myers collaborating with longtime producer Dr. Rosen Rosen. Together, they craft moody, electronic-tinged rock anthems centered on Myers' yearning, passionate vocals. While Myers' distinctive brand of dark pop fits nicely next to contemporaries like Lorde and Florence + the Machine, Sorry also brings to mind the work of alternative rock-era icons like Sinéad O'Connor and Garbage. Included on Sorry is the urgent '90s grunge-influenced single "Lemon Eyes".
Alicia de Larrocha has been playing these works, the greatest in the repertoire of Spanish piano music, all her life – one of her very first recordings, 40 years ago, was of some of the Goyescas, and I had the pleasure of welcoming her first Iberia ten years after that (10/65); and immersed as she was from her earliest childhood in the authentic tradition (her mother, her aunt and she herself were all trained at Granados’s own school, of which she later became director), she has several times been asked to re-record them. She once said, rather wistfully, that she didn’t consider herself a specialist but that Spanish music was what the public constantly demanded of her. One can sympathize with her if she feels inescapably cast in this mould – but then she shouldn’t be so wonderfully persuasive in it! She employs plenty of subtle rubato but possesses the ability to make it sound as natural as breathing; yet she can also preserve a stimulating tautness of rhythm.
