Meaghan Smith from Hailifax, Canada, is into pre-WWII jazz. Her EP The Cricket's Quartet sticks close to that concept, with a bit of turntablism thrown in. She has the voice to handle her material quite well - If You Asked Me really swings.
The EP comes with a DVD with videos for all the tracks. She has a dopey eyed looked, knowing that the directors will be adding superimposed animated animals circling around her head. She can't act, but she can sing.
The Cricket's Quartet is released on Sire Records.Tracks:
