About the latest CD "ECHOED LIGHT"
(released in 2019)
ECHOED LIGHT was included in
Roots Music Canada's list
of 11 favourite new discoveries of 2019!


Our lives roll on as the light shifts between the seasons.  From full band to intimate acoustic arrangements, Meg Tennant's latest album "Echoed Light" offers up some hope, comfort and clarity.
Co-produced by Meg and Toronto roots rocker Mark Ripp, this album has a full, warm sound that settles in around Meg's voice, and carries the listener along through a northern winter break-up (Silence & Snowbanks), a contemplative walk through the woods (Let's Walk This Road), some encouraging words (Not Done Yet), and the loss of a loved one (Shine a Light on Us).

"...The songs, most of them recent, pulse with the ideology of perseverance that Meg brings to all of her stories..."  Paul Corby, Roots Music Canada 

"...This sweet-voiced artistically mature singer-songwriter might come as a revelation to many...Meg's voice manages to sound both girlish and world-weary at the same time.  And there are some beautiful songs here." Roots Music Canada

"Co-produced by Tennant and roots rocker Mark Ripp, the album captures the warmth and honesty of Meg’s voice and the production compliments the smooth, articulate writing style that has become the trademark of Meg Tennant’s music....I now have this CD 'Echoed Light' on repeat, it's that good." 
-Cash Box (Canada) & Record World (USA)
