Well, a few days past one year after I wrote my “Moment in Time” post officially retiring this blog, I’ve decided to revive Meg’s New Music Blog for a special collection of “Musician Origin Stories.” As I type, six musicians (so far) have offered to share their origin stories; i.e., the stories of when they first decided they wanted to become a musician and how they went about accomplishing that. If you’d like to share your musician origin story please email me at megwilhoite at gmail.

Hi there dear reader,

This is Meg’s New Music Blog, a place where for four years I chronicled the goings on of the New York City new music scene. I went to shows, listened to CDs, and met a lot of great people. I’m unabashedly very proud of this little snapshot of a music scene’s moment in time. Many of the artists and groups featured here have moved on to other things—many have moved out of the city—but this blog remains as a testament to the fact that “we were here.” Enjoy yourself browsing through my tag cloud and, where possible, check out the music that’s featured here, you won’t regret it.

With much love,


P.S. to see/hear what music I’m currently listening to you can always hit up my Tumblr
