Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, pianist and composer, Meredith Blis’ music embraces varied influences, from Bach to jazz to modern electronica. Her siren-like vocals evoke both an intimacy and the emotional intensity of the blues. Her lush musical aesthetic draws comparisons to artists such as Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Sara Bareilles, and Sarah McLachlan. Originally from New York City, Meredith grew up in the industry - Her father, Milton Sincoff, was a longtime executive with Arista Records. She earned her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College. She then spent five years in the extension division at The Juilliard School, studying music theory and classical composition. Meredith currently resides in Nashville where she performs regularly at local venues. She is gearing up for a tour to support the upcoming release of her new album, "Be Your own Kind of Beautiful." With this project, Meredith is reconnecting with her artistic voice and some of her most personal music is beginning to surface: songs about recognizing our darkest internal recesses and shining a light on them, songs about bravery and songs about hope. “For songs to be real,” she says, “they have to come from a real place inside of you. The magic of music is that it bridges the gap between people—music has the ability to reach out to people and say, ‘Hey, I’ve been there, I understand.’”
