Some people slink back home to hide after hitting the wall in the big city, but for Meghan La Roque that was merely fuel for a massive creative outpouring. After a brutal seven-year stint in the Southern California music scene, La Roque returned to her roots in Martha’s Vineyard, MA, to mine the reflections of her nightly L.A. “therapy” walks and craft her first full-length ‘Carry Me Home.’ “Each song became a different part of the small town we call L.A. — a map of self-discovery,” La Roque said, in a press release.
Besides La Roque on vocals and guitar, the album also features David Saw on lead guitar, Larry Ciancia (Fiona Apple, Ray LaMontagne) on drums, Jill Zadeh (Maroon 5, Joss Stone) on backing vocals, Jimmy Parr (Carly Simon) on pretty much everything and a cornucopia of local artists.
