Prolific Singer-Songwriter Meghan Cary Amplifies Her Message Of Unity & Hope With The Release Of Her Debut Book
The Acclaimed Folk Artist To Unveil Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs,
A Literary Complement To Her Chart-Topping Songs
Philadelphia, PA (March 8, 2019) – From soulful songs of love and loss to empowering anthems of courage and heroism, Meghan Cary is renowned for her innate ability to connect with others through authentic story telling. Now, on the heels of her latest album hitting the top of the charts, she is taking her passion for prose one step further by unveiling her debut book Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs on March 8 – International Women’s Day.
The companion to her critically-acclaimed album Sing Louder, this mesmerizing collection of essays provides fans with a deeply introspective look into the inspiration behind her most profound album to date. Featuring 10 first-person stories, each dedicated to a different song, the book begins with an eloquent forward from the author before delving into the raw, compassionate and sometimes downright hilarious side of one of Philadelphia’s favorite female folk rock artists.
“I’ve been telling my story from the stage for years – in song and in words. But I really enjoyed digging even deeper into the stories behind the songs on “Sing Louder” to write this book”, said Cary. “So much good can come from sharing our stories. When we hear and relate to someone else’s story, we’re inspired to share our own, and maybe even write a different ending. I wanted to release the book on International Women’s Day as my thank you to all the women who have been courageous enough to raise their voices and be heard. It’s time for all of us to sing louder!”
Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs is 35 pages and includes original photography from Cary, as well as art work and imagery that has inspired her songwriting process. It was edited by Linda Waverka and is being self-published by Cary and Peter Farrell, her husband and musical partner.
Meghan Cary: The Stories Behind The Songs will be available at live performances, as well as here online at www.MeghanCary.com/book starting March 8.

Visionary Folk Artist Meghan Cary’s New Album SING LOUDER Lands In Top 25 Charts For Second Consecutive Month
Jan 22, 2018
After debuting at the #6 spot in November, acclaimed singer/songwriter Meghan Cary’s latest album Sing Louder continues to make waves at radio as it, once again, finds itself in the Top 25 of the US / International Folk DJ Radio Charts in the month of December.
Her first official foray into the Folk DJ music scene, despite making music for almost 20 years, Cary is grateful for the support she’s received for the album – especially throughout the month of December when most DJs are playing more “traditional” holiday songs.
“Songs like ‘Sing Louder’ and ‘Responsibility’ – songs celebrating community and social conscience – might not be considered ‘go to’ songs for December, but I thought the folk DJ community would make the connection, and they did. I think at the holidays people are especially receptive to the idea of coming together and reaching out to help others less fortunate. I wanted the songs on SING LOUDER to put that idea front and center for them,” said Cary.
Those quick to embrace this concept throughout December include such radio stalwarts as: Acoustic Peace Club Playlist with Jeanne Holton on WMNF, An American Sampler with John Sillberg on CKOL, Artie Martello on Mostly Folk and Power Folk, Doug Lewis Endless Music Mix with Douglas Dick on WQCS, From The Joshua Tree Inn with Kevin Elliott on WEFT, Grassroots with Jenny Flux on 2AIR-FM, Hudson River Sampler with Wanda Fischer (WAMC, WAMK, WOSR, WCEL, WCAN, WANC, WRUN, WAMQ, WWES, WANR, WANZ), It’s for folks with Ken Nagelberg on WHYR-FM, Modern Troubadours with James Rogers on WIUP-FM, Music You Can’t Hear on the Radio with John Weingart on WPRB, New Hampshire Public Radio Folk Show with Kate McNally, Small Time Radio Show with John Sillberg on CKOL, Sunday Coffeehouse with Greg Schatzmann on CJLX, and Sunday Supper with John Platt on WFUV.
“These times require songs of compassion and commitment, and Meghan Cary has several, especially ‘Sing Louder’ and “Responsibility,’ which inspire us to reach for our higher selves. And she sings them with such infectious joy you can’t resist joining in,” said John Platt, host of “Sunday Supper” on WFUV Radio.
