“Five Minutes With” Local Basement Pop Artist Meg Warren

Meg Warren has been writing hooks for most of her life. She spent 8 years touring Canada with previous band Repartee, and in 2016 their song ‘Dukes’ became the most added song across all radio formats across Canada in July of that year. Her new EP, ‘A Thousand Ways’, which she co-produced and co-engineered with Daniel Ledwell, will be her debut release as a solo artist.
