Guitar Player, OurStage, and Ernie Ball are teaming up this summer to offer aspiring guitarists a chance to win the ultimate Grand Prize. Enter the Guitar Player “Take The Lead” Competition by August 17 for your shot to win your very own feature in Guitar Player, a year’s supply of strings and accessories from Ernie Ball, and more! Throughout the competition, we’ll be introducing some of the contestants. So without further ado, meet Yael Meyer!
Yael Meyer had an idyllic childhood growing up in Santiago de Chile, a region of the earth where waterfalls, glaciers, deserts, and mountains coexist. This might explain the quixotic slant of her music, which to date has been aired on shows like Private Practice, and Drop Dead Diva. The LA-based singer-songwriter pens indie folk pop gems full of sweetness and light. “I Wonder How” starts with the stomp and twinkle of keys and tambourine, leading you into a softer sort of celebration that feels a bit like Feist. With its simple vocal lines, acoustic guitar and shaken percussion, “Everything Will Be Alright” is light and effervescent—the treacle for a gloomy day. And if that doesn’t do it for you, then skip to “Heartbeat” for a summery, piano-led romp steeped in nostalgia. Here comes the sun, little darlings. - Kate B., OurStage
