GRAPE JUICE PLUS
What is it? A haunted liquid to stimulate the auditory nerves? Ape Astronaut Zira’s favorite libation?
Actually, Grape Juice Plus is a multi-media improvising outfit out of Chicago that has been freaking out/delighting audiences since 2014 and have shared stages with such luminaries as STICK MEN (featuring Pat Mastelotto & Tony Levin from King Crimson) and prog fusion legends, BRAND X.
Based out of Nashville, Meghan has shared the stage with a diverse group of musicians, including Hal Ketchum, Tift Merritt, Freedy Johnston, Robbie Fulks, and Ashley McBride.
Washington Post says: “dramatic vignettes” that are a mix of “pop and country-tinged verve.
The Hampshire Review says: she followed the “lineage that started with Emmylou Harris in the ’70s of female artists — singers and singer/songwriters — in pursuit of Americana and intelligent, heartfelt insight.”
