We here at Cranky Heartburn Music work hard to ensure that each of our products has both inherent and added value.
While we personally prefer simply listening to Meghan’s latest record, Seen Enough Leavers, we’ve also heard back from her fans that the CD is very versatile.
A few examples of the multiple uses of Seen Enough Leavers:
tie to tree as scarecrow/scaresquirrel
shim up wobbly table
pocket mirror (the shiny side, duh!)
door stop (requires purchase of entire case)
replacement Spirograph® ring
As the holidays approach, please consider purchasing Seen Enough Leavers for yourself and for others. If you prefer to download the tracks, thereby forgoing the multiple uses of the physical product, we support that, too!
Meghan is back in Nashville after a super run of shows in the American midwest. She’s been doing some radio and some podcasts and some full-band shows. By strange coincidence, her next four local shows are all at the same venue.
If you are a Nashvillian, or play one on TV, come to The 5 Spot for any and all of the following full-band shows:
September 11, 4-8 pm –> Americana on the Rocks
Broken Jukebox Media’s unofficial AmericanaFest Showcase featuring The Truehearts + Rod Picott + Eric Brace + Ben de la Cour + Chuck Hawthorne + Libby Koch + Terry Klein + Meghan Hayes
September 18, 6-8:30 pm –> Meghan Hayes and Chip Greene
October 16, 6-8:30 pm –> E2TG 8th Anniversary Week 4: Meghan Hayes and Josh Gray
December 10, 8-11:30 pm –> Two Dollar Tuesday
If you are not a Nashvillian, and don’t plan to visit, here are multiple options for you to get your Meghan fix:
talk to the nice people at your favorite local bar/listening room/music venue about having Meghan come to your town and play… she’s friendly, fairly polite*, and doesn’t take up a lot of space.You can even show them her EPK!
consider hosting a house concert featuring Meghan– the perks are endless: you = coolest cat in the neighborhood; Meghan will provide a free Healing Touch session; she might even help weed your garden if you play your cards right; oh, and she does the MUSIC thing too!
“An unimaginable talent, how Hayes has managed to remain in relative obscurity so far is beyond me, as this is one of the best Americana albums in recent history.” (rating: 10/10)
TOM HAUGEN Take Effect Reviews
“Meghan Hayes emerges from a many-years recording absence to deliver one of 2019’s most impressive recordings. Seen Enough Leavers is a gorgeous sounding album, literate and intense.”
DONALD TEPLYSKE Fervor Coulee
Seen Enough Leavers is an “aural triumph with raw, soul-baring emotion, pain, loss and finally, hope. Hayes is not just a writer – she is a bona-fide poet who can paint a picture of desperation through deep lyrics… While the lyrics are definitely heavy throughout this record, they are downright brilliant and show the poetic depth of this extremely versatile, talented singer/songwriter. Hayes’ pure soprano vocals will grab you from the first note, while her lyrics will hold you enraptured until the last.”
“Meghan Hayes proves with Seen Enough Leavers that she’s an Americana artist ready to be recognized throughout the industry and to music fans alike.”
TIM W. JACKSON DittyTV
“Seen Enough Leavers… [is] angsty, tough, and feminine all at the same time.”
CALVIN POWERS Americana Music Show
“On this album, Meghan Hayes is joined by some of Nashville’s best players – including Audley Freed on guitar. It is Hayes’ songs that are the star of this album – which are brought to life by the great music and vocals.”
JOE WOLFE-MAZERES Ear to the Ground
“Ah, the devastation of the breakup album. You’ve probably heard several but it’s not likely that you’ve heard one as piercing as Seen Enough Leavers, the third release from East Nashville singer-songwriter Meghan Hayes. So, it begs the question of why one would want to listen to songs full of despair, spite, and pain. There are at least four reasons to listen to these songs from Hayes – she has the poet’s gift for literate songwriting, her soprano voice delivers not only emotion but unpredictable phrasing in places, her supporting band is comprised of top-shelf Nashville musicians, and most importantly, there are enough threads of hope to keep you engaged in her stories.”
“the lyrics on this heartfelt, introspective self-penned album certainly exude sadness and bitterness at times but they also convey a sense of her resilience and recovery. Hayes’s pop/folk melodies (which also owe debts to country) are seductive, and so is her rich soprano.”
