We really came to the love the folksy, homey feel that Meghan Pulles is always able to capture within her sound. New York-based, Meghan Pulles has learned of the therapeutic elements of the music and became passionate ever since to relay such a therapy. Artistically, she's always been rooted in creating music that would help others. "Keep the Light On" was her 2019 EP that really showcased those mellow, soft and yet vibrant vocals she possesses. As an artist who brings in light indie elements, combined with a sense of her theatre background, we receive a sound that can't possibly adhere to one specific genre. Meghan Pulles has always used her experience to her advantage and created these operatic and theatrical songs, which always hold a multitude of emotions.
Starting off her EP, "Shelter in the Storm" persists with a delicate flow, and is predominantly highlighting Indie/Pop productions. We migrate on to tracks like "Keep the Light On", and it's more forceful than the previous. Meghan Pulles adds a bit more vigor to the sounding, which breaks you out of that serene atmosphere, and pulls you into more of a thought-provoking one. By the time we neared the end of Meghan's EP, the last track "Light After Loss" brought us back into that somber and reflective embrace. After the EP, Meghan Pulles ended off her 2019 with her Christmas release "Three Christmases". We listened to her track throughout the holidays and found it so incredibly fitting with the type of mood we wanted with our guests! Meghan Pulles definitely keeps her melody and overall sound consistent with listeners, and so we know we can expect that same characterizable softness and honesty from Meghan in the New Year!

Hey again, Meghan Pulles! It's a treat to have you back so soon at BuzzMusic! Wrapping up your 2019, are there any final goals you're setting for your artistry in the New Year?
Hi guys, thanks again for having me. I do have some goals that I have set: I would like to continue to play more live shows at least once a month, and I have some new projects in the works including an album and an EP or two that I have brewing in the pot. Just continuing to write and release impactful music.
Looking back at what 2019 saw from you, your EP "Keep the Light On" featured a more soothing and ripened sounding from you. Did you enjoy the curative process of the EP?! Did you get the response you were looking for from your listening base?
Thank you so much! I am so happy at how well received my EP was this year, it truly blew me away. I loved curating the EP and bringing some ideas to the whole release process and making it very personal. I definitely feel very privileged to have so many people listening to my songs, and it definitely blew my expectations out of the water. Everyone is receiving it with so much love and light which is all I could ask for.
"Keep the Light On" is a 4-track EP, each track making us feel similarly calm. Was there a predominant theme integrated within this EP?
This EP was primarily written to inspire and uplift, but also to share my personal story about where I am at with my life. Like most people, I have had a lot of darkness and trauma in my life, but music has really helped me get out of those dark places, and honestly has saved my life and given me that purpose I have on this earth. I wanted to share that message with the listener that no matter what happens to them, or how dark life gets, there is always a light inside of them that will overcome that darkness and make them stronger whether they are going through grief, trauma, anxiety or depression.
What do you hope to instill within your listeners when they listen to work such as "Keep the Light On"?
I hope that my listener feels lifted up, and that they can get through whatever trial or tribulation life is throwing their way, and they can put my music on and feel a sense of peace and healing within themselves.
Knowing that you're an artist who emphasizes the healing aspect of music, do you try and incorporate sounds known to aid in the healing process within your own music?
This is definitely something that I feel like I want to explore in the next music that I release, I have been reading up on sound healing and the musical benefits of it and I would love to incorporate some of those sounds into my next projects if they can fit for sure.

I just want to thank everyone for listening to my music this year. I never thought that I would have such amazing releases like this and it has just been a dream. I plan on releasing a lot more music in 2020 that I am super excited about, and this year was the gateway to doing that so thank you all! Happy New Year!!
