Meghan’s solo career started in 2002, in Portland, ME –walking past a club on Congress Street, apparently humming loud enough for the club owner to run out, grab her by the arm and ask her to sing right there on the spot for his guests. Stunned, she sang an a’capella tune she had finished writing that day. The club owner asked if she would play a real set sometime, so she returned a month later and sang all of the a’capella tunes she could fit into 30 minutes.
Soon she picked up the guitar and with the support of the local scene, Meghan developed her strong voice, distinctive guitar playing, songwriting and performance that often stuns audiences. She recorded a few solo albums before she met her husband and bassist, Mordechai Rosenblatt, and they started The Reverie Machine in 2009.
Meghan and Mordechai moved to the Pacific Northwest and now work with David Pender Lofgren on cajon, drums and percussion and Thomas Deakin on clarinet and vocals.
Meghan Yates & The Reverie Machine released their debut album Not By Blood in 2012. The next album, The Brightest Night, is due in 2015.
“Meghan Yates simply sings from an otherworldly place that I can only describe as delicate trembling thunder.” — William Ethridge (Eternal Otter Records)
