Musician, songwriter, and producer Meg Toohey returns with her emotional new single “Lucky Streak”, written in response to the tragic news that her friend Nick Cordero had passed away from COVID-19. Within an hour of sitting down with her guitar she had a full demo together that she sent over to her fellow bandmates from the musical Waitress. Meg thought if they all recorded it together it would be a beautiful way to send their love to Nick’s wife Amanda. Of course everyone was on board, including her longtime friend Sara Bareilles, whose gorgeous harmonies elevated the emotional weight of the tribute. The single will officially be released a week from today on October 13th.
Meg Toohey got her start in the Boston music scene, writing and performing alongside artists like Lori McKenna and Josh Ritter. While living in L.A. she worked as a touring musician, playing with the indie folk-pop band The Weepies, Lenka, and the iconic Manolo Garcia. Now living in NYC, Meg has been performing with Sara Bareilles’s Tony-nominated musical Waitress, appearing both on stage and in her live TV performances on shows such as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Meg’s work has been heard in a variety of hit TV series including Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries, Parenthood, Grey’s Anatomy, and Gossip Girl. Her former band The Weepies has also been featured in films including Sex in the City, Friends with Money, Morning Glory and Last Shift.
Released earlier this year, Meg Toohey’s full-length album “Butch” is a beautifully produced Americana record with intimately personal songs chronicling her life journey.
