Madi Meeks

For You

Texas Platters

The delicate debut of 16-year-old Madi Meeks is petal-like. Five swooning tracks enfold wistful remembrances and missed connections, arranged to spotlight the Austin native's lush, formidable tone. Her slow-burning, country-hued title track launches on a somber note: "Roses are red/ Romance is dead." Acoustic sparsity steps up "Broken Telephone," followed by swooning fiddle arcs for serene "Locked In." The eloquent intro bodes well for Meeks' evolution.
