Artist of the Week

Meghan Trainor

Genre: Pop

Like: Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Taylor Swift

Meghan Trainor is fresh on the scene this year when she broke out with her first single through Epic Records, “All About That Bass” Like most pop music, this song is overplayed on the radio, super bouncy, and a bit repetitive.

However, Trainor has brought a twist to the pop scene. With her quirky sense of humor and positive outlook, Trainor managed to shed some light on body positivity and self-acceptance through her dance-friendly single. She breaks the pop-singer stereotypes of carbon-copied robots with no genuine talent. Trainor’s music is bubbly, girly, and upbeat.

Believe it or not, Trainor is only 20 years old. Trainor attended high school at the Nauset High School on Cape Cod where she sang and played trumpet in the jazz band. She also plays guitar and keyboard. By age 18, she self-released three albums of her own material and scored a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music. And here, we were just graduating high school. When you can get “All About That Bass” out of your head, check out the rest of her EP “Title” with songs such as “Dear Future Husband” and “Close Your Eyes.” Trainor is on the rise and we will definitely be seeing more of her in the future.
