Megs also joined notable acts such as Pearl Jam, Blind Melon, Alice and Chains, Melissa Etheridge, Macklemore, Candle Box, Mother Love Bone, and other standouts as having recorded through this piece of Seattle music history.
Megs in studio experience recording “It’s My Truck” can be seen in the documentary “Making Megs McLean “It’s My Truck” which can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBCoo2vAz2M .The song “It’s My Truck” is available at all major music portals or at iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/its-my-truck/id1003827933?i=1003828005&ign-mpt=uo%3D4
Megs was joined in her recording of her breakout single “It’s My Truck” by legendary Seattle drummer Ben Smith who has been the drummer for Heart for over twenty years and Blind Melon Bassist Brad Smith who’s unforgettable bass line in the international sensation “No Rain” was recorded at London Bridge in 1992
Ben Smith drummer for Megs McLean and Heart stated: “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 and recent Pacific NW Chapter President of the Grammys (2013-2015) commented: “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. “
Megs McLean commented by saying: “I really hope that from the song “It’s My Truck that people will be able to have fun. That it will be a song they can crank up in their car or of course their truck. I just wanted to do a fun energetic upbeat song where people can just roll down the window and do a little Megs dance to. It has been an amazing experience recording in such a world renowned studio with true icons in the Industry. And not just Geoff Ott, Ben Smith, and Brad Smith but we were also able to travel to Nashville and have the legendary Jeff Balding do the final mix in person and to have it Mastered at Georgetown Masters by Andrew Mendelson. I feel truly blessed to have been able to work with all of those who were a part of this.”
