Meaghan Smith “Mirror” - See Her New Video in a TD Exclusive!
Published on Monday February 23rd 2015
Some musicians are blessed with the ability to speak directly to listener’s hearts. Canadian singer-songwriter Meaghan Smith is one such performer. A native of London, Ontario now based in Halifax, Smith was raised in a family of musicians and on a range of vintage and contemporary sounds.
Meaghan’s love of jazz, swing, hip-hop, pop and roots music alike was evident in her breakthrough album, The Cricket's Orchestra. Recorded independently, and released by Sire/Warner Music Canada in early 2010, the album was a quirky blend of organic and electronic music, which Smith herself dubbed “modern vintage.” The combination, paired with Smith’s honest, insightful songwriting, proved to be enticing; not only was The Cricket’s Orchestra critically acclaimed, it won the up-and-comer “Best New Artist” honours at the 2011 JUNO Awards.
Two years later, Meaghan decided to take a creative leap and make a notably different sophomore album. She began work on what would become a lush pop record, complete with big choruses, ambitious production, and deeply personal songwriting.
The resulting release, 2014’s Have a Heart is magnetic. The album combines deeply human themes of love, loss, strength and hope with irresistible, instantly hummable melodies. It’s earned the artist three 2015 East Coast Music Awards (ECMAs) nominations, in the categories of Pop Recording of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Video of the Year for the album’s title track. Meaghan will perform her new single, “Mirror,” at the ECMAs Gala taking place Thursday April 9 at the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay, Newfoundland.
“Mirror” is both intimate and profound. It’s a powerful song that speaks to the beauty existing within us all, even when we can’t see it ourselves. Fittingly, the new music video that accompanies “Mirror” allows Meaghan Smith to explore new reflections of herself.
TD and TD Music are pleased to support and share Meaghan’s music as we feature the exclusive premiere of this beautiful new video.
