In “Reaching Higher”, Meg delivers an impassioned call to reach for our better selves in times of adversity. Jon Gordon builds a moody, bossa nova influenced track, playing electric and acoustic guitars, bass and percussion. Tracy Stark and Jon collaborated on background vocals.
“Inside” paints a haunting, highly personal picture of the disorientation and sense of unreality of being in self-isolation in the pandemic, and makes it instantly familiar and true. Meg’s intimate vocal is supported by a crystalline haze of overlapping acoustic guitars by frequent collaborator Jon Gordon. Holding down the bottom and providing a gorgeous solo voice is cellist Brian Sanders. Appropriate to the subject matter, the song was conceived, given form and recorded by Meg and the musicians in isolation, and assembled over the internet.
