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".
This recording brings together two of today’s finest British organist/composers and includes specially commissioned works. Jeremy Filsell’s music is rooted in a long liturgical tradition and ranges from a poignant Epitaph to a Te Deum which recreates the spirit of William Walton’s glorious piece for the 1953 Coronation. David Briggs’s Pange lingua portrays the wonders of the Holy Communion in music, and his dramatic and grandiose Messe pour Saint-Sulpice also has moments of quiet, emotional profundity. The Vasari Singers’ Great British Anthems (8572504) has been described as “essential listening” (Gramophone).
