Welcome to Meg Walters' World.
After spending eight years in Sydney working in the music industry, I've decided to leave that 'glamorous' life behind and adopt a simpler, more holistic approach to living. I have to laugh when I try to explain what I used to do for work. The titles always conjured up images of me partying with rockstars in some kind of cocaine blitzed hyper-reality where everyone wears flares and doesn't do any work. The reality of it is that it was incredibly difficult and sometimes destructive work. I spent 95% of my time in front of a laptop working to help build someone else's dream and achieve their goals. I poured my heart and soul into this for years, genuinely believing I was doing some semblance of good by sharing this music with the World and enriching people's lives through culture. In truth, the artists I ended up working for were manifestations of a very well thought out and executed marketing agenda. There wasn't much authenticity left in it all and that makes me feel queasy when I think about it in those terms. When did I cross the line and make it less about the music I was helping to make and more about the money? Maybe I was delusional to begin with. But I just love music SO GODDAMN MUCH. I know how it's affected me personally in times of heartache, desperation, rage, frustration and nearly every other emotion know to (wo)man. I know how you can feel totally lost in the world and when you hear those lyrics or that guitar melody, it all makes sense...like someone else out there just gets you. I know how brilliant music can take a hold of you and just never let go because it's shaped a part of your identity and has melded with who you are. It's that powerful.
While I'll never stop loving music, I was never any good at actually making music. I can't carry a tune for shit, hell - I can barely play an instrument. Does the triangle count? That's why this site, while dedicated to my own pursuit of my own goals and aspirations, is also in part dedicated to music, because it's a large part of who I am. Enjoy x
