MĒAGAN SKY is back with her much anticipated album “I’ll Be The One”, and while she wears the rockstar cap well, things weren’t always so easy. She was at a crossroads in her life, rock bottom in fact, when she decided to take the leap into music and unapologetically make her dreams a reality. “I’ll Be The One” is a symbolisation of all that was sacrificed to get to where she is now, and documents the intense vulnerability she felt on her journey.
“It may not have looked like it, but inside I was falling apart. I hope “I’ll Be The One” will help others feel less alone on their self-love journey” says MĒAGAN SKY who manages to flawlessly blend different genres and musical inspirations together, with indie-pop and R&B sensibilities to be found within her swirling melodies. Tracks such as “Am I Already Found” come as a powerful emotional offering that features infectious drums by Ji Tanzer (Storm Large) and the smooth understated keys of Michael Elson (Swatkins, Allen Stone, Tyrone Hendrx, Hailey Johnson, Chase Hayden), produced by Raymond Richards (Local Natives, Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads)
Speaking about the album, she says: “After spending years compromising myself to make others happy, I came to the tipping point where I had nothing left to give and I was forced to finally take care of myself. I realized the way I was living my life was based on emotional survival mechanisms that didn’t serve me anymore. It’s from this place that this album was born. Each song documents the journey I’ve gone through to find inner happiness on the road to self-love.”
