Meg Myers: An Ex-Jehovah’s Witness Makes An Album For People Like Us

Meg Myers is a musician and an ex-Jehovah’s Witness. Before you do anything else, listen to the song above and you’ll see that this is very obvious in her lyrics. (There are some naughty words, but if you’re here, that shouldn’t really be a problem.) The clip probably tells you everything you need to know, really.

If you want more, the about page on her website says the following:

I USED TO LIVE IN THE SMOKEY MOUNTAINS OF TENNESSEE / NOW I LIVE IN LOS ANGELES

I USED TO BE A JEHOVAH’S WITNESS / NOW I CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY

I DIDN’T GO TO HIGH SCHOOL / INSTEAD I BUILT FORTS

I SING / I PLAY GUITAR PIANO AND BASS

I WILL ALWAYS MAKE MUSIC

XOXOXOXO

MEG

If that isn’t awesome enough, you can get her album for FREE. It includes the music in the YouTube clip above. Get it and cram it on your MP3 player! If you’ve been disfellowshipped, or treated like a bad associate, or judged by Witnesses who used to be your friends, this might be your album. Or at least your song. I haven’t listened to all the music yet, but I will.

The song is angry, but Meg Myers is encouraging. It’s always cool to see a former Jehovah’s Witness do something with his or her life. Way to go, Meg. Good luck with everything.
