"Meghan Linsey - This Is Now"

For those of you looking for mainstream country music on the independent scene look no farther than Meghan Linsey. This album has surprisingly slick production for a record not on a major label. “Shame, Shame” opens the album in a catchy, almost Faith Hill fashion. “In Your Love” follows in similar footsteps but this time tackling the big power ballad. The title track “This Is Now” could easily find its way onto some radio stations. Like most younger singers sometimes Meghan seems to be stretching for emotions that aren’t there, instead singing things in a paint-by-numbers fashion but this is something that always gets better over time and she’s got a powerful voice to grown into. Don’t be surprised to see Meghan on a major label in the near future. - www.womenofcountry.com

Album Review:
Here's the surprise; Meghan was only 15 when she cut this album!! Don't think that's a surprise? You will after listening to this young lady's excellent voice. It sounds very strong and solid for one so young! She also has a very good style that is based upon the power in the voice combined with a warm, smooth texture. For a gal from Louisiana, Meghan has an almost un-noticeable country accent and could easily hit high on the pop music charts as well as country. These 10 tracks are all very good, but if I were picking favorites, I would choose "In Your Love", "This Is Now", "Half Way Home", "That's Where I'll Be", and the best of the bunch, "Big Time." I'm eagerly awaiting the next album! - Lloyd Douglas Morris- founder of Indie Music Appreciation Group www.indiemusicgroup.com

Released recently, Linsey’s album, “This is Now,” is a “realization of a dream and the perserverance it takes to achieve,” according to a recent press release.
“The (album) reviews describe this dream as a remarkable listening experience. Meghan’s Nashville producer said, “This album has brought Meghan to a new level in her singing career and new excitement to see what is going to happen next.”
