Following the release of her second single Triple J invited Meg Mac into the studio to perform live to air ‘Every lie’ and a cover of The Broods ‘Bridges’; these performances have already yielded in excess of 300,000 views on youtube.
‘Roll up your sleeves’ Meg Mac’s 3rd single signalled the emergence of a major song writing talent. The track exploded on Triple J and quickly become one of the station’s most played tracks. The song won second place in the Vanda & Young / APRA Song of the year competition, which is one of the world’s most prestigious song writing competitions and significantly raised Meg Mac’s profile in America; generating critical media acclaim and radio airplay.
“2014 has been a banner year for Australian artists. Iggy Azalea, Chet Faker, 5 Seconds Of Summer and Vance Joy all made their presence felt on a variety of Billboard charts. If the quality of breakthrough single “Roll Up Your Sleeves” is any indication, Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Meg Mac could be leading the charge next year. The lilting, gospel-tinged ballad is a breathtakingly beautiful introduction to one of pop music’s most exciting new talents”. Idolator USA
Meg Mac released her debut EP titled ‘MEGMAC’ in August 2014 followed by a sell-out tour of Australia, firmly establishing her as a major force on the Australian music scene.
“Treating the audience to unquestionably one of the most breathtaking performances I have ever seen, I have no doubt that Meg Mac is well on her way to very big things”. Review AAA
