Meghann Wright Rocks Out On New Song ‘River’: BUST Premiere

by Erika W. Smith

Brooklyn-based blues rocker Meghann Wright is back with a stunning music video for her song “River,” premiering exclusively on today. The haunting video cuts between Meghann singing in a graveyard and a spooky, bloody exorcism. “Don’t go down to the river, baby,” Meghann sings. “‘Cause ain’t nobody waiting for you there.”

“River” is part of a series of music videos that Meghann curated to accompany her debut full-length album, Nothin’ Left To Lose, which was released June 2015 on BlackTop Records. Meghann has already completed three national tours and is gearing up for a fourth, beginning on May 12 at Milkboy Philadelphia and coming to New York in June.

Though her pierced, all-black, rocker look is all Brooklyn, Meghann hails from Makaha, Hawaii, and her sound takes influence from many genres and experiences; music critics have compared her to Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow. Outside performing, Meghann is the founder of The City & The Heart, a BUST-approved New York advocacy organization supporting independent female artists.
