Buzzworthy singer-songwriter Meiko, who is one-quarter Japanese on her maternal grandmother's side, was born and raised in rural Georgia. She got her start in 2007 at the venerable Los Angeles venue The Hotel Café (where she also worked as a bartender). Since then she's released three critically-acclaimed albums and numerous EPs through MySpace/DGC, Concord Records and Universal Japan. Meiko has built a massive tour following in the U.S. performing as a headliner and also as support for artists including Jewel, KT Tunstall, Eric Hutchinson, Mat Kearney and others, and she's also toured Europe and Asia multiple times. Live performances on late night TV shows including "Conan", Jay Leno and Carson Daly further fanned the flames, and her hit song "Stuck On You" was played on radio across the U.S. and even reached #1 on the radio charts in Japan. See her live at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach.
