Meghan Yates and The Reverie Machine

Meghan has been singing and writing songs for a very long time, but her solo career started in 2002 in Portland, ME -- walking past a local club on Congress street, apparently humming loud enough for the club owner to run out, grab her by the arm and ask her to sing right there on the spot for his guests. Stunned and unprepared, she sang an a'capella tune she had finished writing earlier that day. The club owner asked if she would be willing to play a real set sometime, so she returned about a month later and sang all of the a'capella tunes she could fit into thirty minutes. Eventually, she picked up the guitar and through the support of the local scene in a small port city in Maine, Meghan developed a distinctive guitar playing, songwriting style and performance that captures and often stuns her audiences. She recorded a few solo albums before she met her husband and bassist, Mordechai Rosenblatt, and together they started The Reverie Machine in 2009. Meghan and Mordechai relocated to Bellingham for the milder winters and the mystic landscape. Whether solo, as a duo, or when other players join, the music created often uplifts, penetrates and inspires the listener
