Kings of Convenience might as well have started a sonic revolution by coining the term “quiet is the new loud”. In a few words, this might be a good way to describe the music of rising indie star Yael Meyer.
Compared to artists such as Jose Gonzalez, Jack Johnson, Feist and Death Cab For Cutie, her new album “Everything Will Be Alright” released on November 15, 2011 on her own label Kli Records, debuted at the top of the charts on various national radio stations (USA), and as New & Noteworthy on i-Tunes. The album was also included on Chile’s Radio Horizonte Top 75 albums of 2011 list.
SPIN Magazine praised the songs on Everything Will Be Alright, Yael’s newest release as “artful simplicity, offering refuge from modern anxiety”, while The Wall Street Journal states “2011 has been an exceptional year in rock and pop…with superior albums by Adele…Feist, P.J. Harvey…St. Vincent…Add Yael Meyer and her new ‘Everything Will Be Alright’ to that list”.
Her songs have appeared on several prime time TV shows including ”Drop Dead Diva”, “Private Practice” and ”Awkward” and various films including ”El Brindis”, and the sequels ”Que Pena Tu Boda” and ”Que Pena Tu Vida” (“F*** My Life”) by Chilean film-maker Nicolás López, both of which feature several of Yael’s songs in the soundtrack. Both films went on to become the highest grossing films of 2010 and 2011 respectively (Chile).
Based in L.A. Yael has toured the U.S, Europe and South America and performed at acclaimed international music festivals such as Sziget (Hungary), Lollapalooza (Chile) and SXSW (USA). Her outstanding performances set her apart as an artist to watch.
