Monday Morning Music: Meg Mac's "Roll Up Your Sleeves"

Photographer: Michael Yoder

The Land Down Under has produced some of the biggest names in indie music the last few years – people like Tame Impala lighting up the world of psychedelia, Iggy Azalea getting people moving on the dance floor and Courtney Barnett making us fall in love with her quirky lyrics.

Now comes Melbourne, Australia’s own neo-soul singer Meg Mag, who brings her stylish Motown-esque voice to the U.S. for the first time. She made her local debut last month, performing at the NON-COMMvention in Philadelphia, and on Tuesday, June 23, she opens for D’Angelo at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside.

Meg’s debut EP, MEGMAC, is garnering rave reviews with songs like “Every Lie” and “Known Better” and a cover of the classic Bill Withers’ song “Grandma’s Hands.”

As an introduction to the young singer, take a listen and watch the new video for her song, “Roll Up Your Sleeves” – an homage to using music to help yourself get through difficult situations.

Meg Mac opens for superstar soul singer D’Angelo & The Vanguard on June 23 at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside. Tickets range from $75-$175.
