The SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas features more than 1,800 musical acts. There are more than 80 stages in downtown Austin featuring acts of little different musical genres. SXSW is in its 23 year and remains essential to the music industry.
My absolute favorite artist performing this year is Meiko! I first heard Meiko last year on a radio station known for featuring new artists during an acoustic part of the show. Meiko is a folk rock/indie/pop musician that reminds me of a "softer" version of Katy Perry. Several of her songs were featured on TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, The Hills, and Good Morning America. This added to her popularity, making her song "Boys With Girlfriends" move to spot 35 on the iTunes charts and her album the #1 Folk selling album for over a month.
Everyone must check her out because she is so sweet! And don't forget to check her MySpace for upcoming events and shows. You don't want to miss her!!
peace love and "I know better not to be friends with boys with girlfriends..."
