Meredith Bragg

Many things have happened in the years since Virginia songwriter Meredith Bragg's last album was released, but nothing will give more insight into his newest full-length, Nest, than the recent birth of his daughter. While pulling inspiration from sources as disparate as John James Audobon (Birds of North America) or Renaissance architecture (The Last Hours of Brunelleschi), the subtext of parenthood is a natural -- though initially unintentional -- through-line. Teaming up with long time collaborator and producer Chad Clark (Dismemberment Plan, Georgie James, Beauty Pill), Nest also finds Meredith extending his sonic palette from the self-restrained single guitar of his sophomore record (Silver Sonya) to a larger handful of musicians, instruments and digital experimentation. The result is his most engaging and expansive record to date. Meredith lives in Alexandria VA with his wife, daughter, two cats and a general lack of shelf-space. Nest is his fourth release for The Kora Records.
