Meg Smith


The 2021 release “Cross My Heart I Hope U Die” established Meg as an exciting talent to watch. Now at over 5.5 Million streams, the bewitching pop break-up anthem was featured on numerous Spotify playlists. Meg was also the recipient of BMI’s inaugural Charlie Feldman Award for Emerging Talent. Her latest release, “Cautiously Optimistic” is about how Meg grew very jaded & pessimistic these past few years. She says “But somehow, maybe because I fell in love, I became very hopeful & ‘Cautiously Optimistic’ about my life. I want to share this song with my fans to memorialize how I feel at this moment in time.” Her recent single, “One Hit Wonder”, was a rare & touching love song which resonated with fans and industry alike, garnering a Wonderland premiere as well as a spot on the coveted New Music Friday USA. Her songs have been featured on Salt, Fresh & Chill, Indie Pop, Young & Free, Next Gen Singer Songwriter and Pop Rock playlists. Her debut single “Cross My Heart I Hope U Die” is the theme of EZRA, the popular LGBTQ+ Vampire series on Apple TV. Meg appeared in Season 1 and is expected to appear in Season 2. The song is also featured in season 2 of Ginny and Georgia on Netflix.
