“…judging by what you hear on her new EP Believer…the new sound suits the Louisiana-raised, Nashville-based singer to a tee…Believer retains enough country influence to attract listeners from that side, but make no mistake, this is one assertive, sassy little pop record with strong crossover appeal, highlighted by the Southern-tinged rocker ‘Counterfeit’ and thunderous ballad ‘Best of Me.'”
–Adrien Begrand, POPMATTERS.COM, July 30, 2015
Vocal powerhouse MEGHAN LINSEY—season 8 runner-up of NBC‘s hit singing competition “The Voice”–teams up with POPMATTERS.COM to unveil her new pop/soul EP BELIEVER in its entirety before the EP’s official release tomorrow (7/31) via iTunes and everywhere else digital music is available.
The six-track EP–news of which was announced exclusively on ETONLINE.COM (7/20)–showcases LINSEY‘s dynamically soulful vocals and emotionally charged songwriting. It was recorded in Nashville and produced by Tyler Cain (Ashley Monroe, James Otto). ROLLINGSTONE.COM last week premiered “Sunshine in My Soul” and noted: “Meghan Linsey transports listeners to New Orleans within the first 10 seconds of her new song, ‘Sunshine in My Soul’…the singer-songwriter’s voice packs its own one-two-punch with rasp and a range reminiscent of iconic soul singers of the Sixties.” (7/24) In addition, YAHOO! MUSIC revealed “Counterfeit” last week (7/24), with Lyndsey Parker praisingthe song as a “feisty-filly track” and noting that, “Meghan Linsey’s ‘Counterfeit’ is the real deal.” Additionally, ARTISTDIRECT.COM debuted BELIEVER‘s “This Side of Heaven,” with Amy Sciarretto raving, “it’s a feel-good and uplifting anthem and it’s one of our favorite songs of 2015. Own it!” (7/24)
