Originally from Illinois, Meg Remy is established as one of the most acclaimed songwriters and performers to emerge from Toronto`s eclectic underground music scene where she currently lives. As the creative force behind the musical entity U.S. Girls, her celebrated discography spans 15 years from early experimental works released on the Siltbreeze label and includes three Polaris Prize shortlisted albums on 4AD: Half Free (2015), In A Poem Unlimited (2018), and Heavy Light (2020). All three albums also garnered Juno nominations for Best Alternative Album. Meg has toured extensively through Europe and North America, establishing a reputation for politically astute commentary and theatrical performances with her extended U.S. Girls band, leading her to be named the best live act of 2018 by Paste Magazine. During this time Remy has maintained a visual arts practice, exhibited collage work and directed several music videos and other video artworks including her short film Woman`s Advocate (2014), in which she also performed. Recently Remy published her first book, a memoir called Begin By Telling (2021). As a platform and persona, U.S. Girls operates on a uniquely out-of-time wavelength, alternately wronged and rueful, classic but contemporary, bruised vignettes of poetic Americana through a feminist lens. Bless This Mess marks both a divergence from and deepening of Remy`s songbook, more at peace with her restless truths and moods.
