Kings of Convenience might as well have started a sonic revolution by coining the term “quiet is the new loud”. In a few words, this might be a good way to describe the music of indie star Yael Meyer.
Compared to artists such as Jose Gonzalez, Jack Johnson, Feist and Death Cab For Cutie, her new album “Everything Will Be Alright”, debuted at the top of the charts on various national radio stations (USA), and as New & Noteworthy on i-Tunes, ranking in the top 200 CMJ charts only days after its release, where it remained for several weeks. The album was also included on various "best of 2011" lists including Chile’s Radio Horizonte Top 75 albums of 2011.
SPIN Magazine praises the songs on Everything Will Be Alright, Yael’s latest release as "artful simplicity, offering refuge from modern anxiety", while The Wall Street Journal states "[It] has been an exceptional year in rock and pop...with superior albums by Adele...Feist, P.J. Harvey...St. Vincent...Add Yael Meyer and her new 'Everything Will Be Alright' to that list".
Her songs have appeared on several prime time TV shows including"Drop Dead Diva", "Private Practice" and multiple MTV shows including "Awkward", "Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant", as well as various films including the sequels "Que Pena Tu Boda" and "Que Pena Tu Vida" ("F*** My Life")by Chilean film-maker Nicolás López, and the upcoming Eli Roth (Hostel, Inglorious Bastards) co-produced "Aftershock" by the same director.
Based in L.A. Yael has toured the U.S, Europe and South America having recently returned to the U.S. after a month of sold out shows in her native Chile, where she also performed at the famed festival Lollapalooza Chile 2012. Her outstanding performance set her apart as an artist to watch, being hailed as one of the best shows of the festival by critics and audiences alike. The lineup also included Foster The People, Bjork, Band of Horses, MGMT and Skrillex.
