"Not only was I able to work with legendary musicians such as Ben Smith and producer Geoff Ott, but I also had the opportunity to have it all documented by multi Emmy award winning producers Todd Crites and Jackson Nguyen of TurnLeft/ReelTime Partners. Being able to team up with such talented people has been a true blessing and I can see why they are among the most sought after producers in the industry. While filming the documentary and recording "It's My Truck" we were simultaneously working on a very special project that will soon debut. I couldn't have done it without such an amazing team."

Megs McLean, Singer/Songwriter/Actor

Ben Smith commented on the making of “It’s My Truck” and his collaboration with Megs McLean: “She’s a super strong singer at a young age but obviously is motivated about it. The band I play in “Heart” has an element of their sound that’s super aggressive so that’s part of my style is being able to hit things aggressively and find the right spots and dynamics in songs. I’m not really surprised by the aggressiveness of the tune “It’s My Truck”.  It’s always fun to come out and play, come out and really play and really bring it.  The roominess of this space, that really works well for drums so it feels great to play in this room and they do a great job of recording it here and I love to come out here.”

Geoff Ott, Co-Owner London Bridge Studio and recent Pacific NW Chapter President of the Grammys (2013-2015), stated: “I think what Seattle brings to country is a little bit of the grunge factor.  If you think about “I’m going to be in a country band you go to Nashville, you go to these amazing studios, you get these amazing players, they are just killer and they lay it down and you’re like that sounds awesome. Up here we are a little less refined. We like things a little bit looser, a little bit sloppier, which is kinda down homey, it’s kinda swampy, it kinda fits into that Americana thing really well I think. And what Megs brings is that feeling of country. I think people are going to be blown away when they hear Megs and “It’s My Truck”. She’s got some great pipes and really knows what she’s after. “
