Biography

Fusing folk, contemporary, gospel and the soulful sound of blues, Meredith Rounsley brings honest and passionate music to a generation searching for healing and truth. With influences like BarlowGirl, Bethany Dillon, Jon Foreman, KT Tunstall, and Starfield, she presents the Hope of Christ through her anointed lyrics and captivating vocals.
Meredith has always lived in a Christian home, so the concept of God’s love and forgiveness was apparent at a very early age. At fourteen she made a personal commitment to Christ and was inspired to use her musical talents for God instead of trying to push through her own agenda. It was a time of choosing; of letting go of a lot of dreams and handing over control of every part of her life. It was a choice to surrender. That’s right around the time that God began opening doors for Meredith musically.
Meredith serves as worship leader at Salisbury Christian School, where she is entering her senior year of high school. Through this and other ministry opportunities she shares how God uses us more in our brokenness than when we try to keep our shortcomings under the radar. Transparency is the key to her ministry.
As a singer/songwriter, Meredith credits her family as her best friends and greatest support. From her first chords at age thirteen, to her first opening for a local Christian band, “Proof of Love”, her family has encouraged, inspired and challenged her to go hard after God and all He has for her life. When describing her ministry, Meredith says, “God has given me the ability to share about my struggles, so I’m just going to continue doing that and following His lead. It has yet to be boring!”

Lyrics

Messy

Written By: Meredith Rounsley

Messy am I
I am waiting ‘til you notice
Thoughtless am I sometimes
Restless am I
I am far too complicated
And I’ve made it so there’s no way out this time

I know you’re saving my soul
With every move that I make, you hold me
And in your redeeming hands
I’m seeing everything I need
Is everything you are

Foolish am I
I’ve been bound by my own actions
Guilty am I, guilty am I
Fragile am I
It’s like I am always breaking
Oh, it’s no mistake when commit my crimes

I know you’re saving my soul
With every move that I make, you hold me
And in your redeeming hands
I’m seeing everything I need
Is everything you are

It’s like the older I get, the harder I fall
Like the smarter I seem, I know nothing at all
And the stronger I feel, I’ve got it all wrong

I know you’re saving my soul
With every move that I make, you hold me
And in your redeeming hands
I’m seeing everything I need
Everything I need
Oh, everything I need
Is everything you are

Set List

I have performed anywhere from a 3 song setlist to a 90 minute show, so I have a solid lineup of songs. I usually include worship songs and covers by CCM artists, along with some pop, originals, and a touch of The Jackson 5 (just for fun). A typical set-list for a 45 minute show would look something like this:

Grace*
Top of the World - Bethany Dillon
I Am The Moon*
Black Horse - KT Tunstall
Messy*
I Want You Back - Jackson 5
Undignified
Want You Here*
I Will Go - Starfield
It Isn't So Far*
