Meiko checked in with fans while in London on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Friday (July 24), talking about the end of her UK tour. The singer songwriter tells readers:
My 1st UK tour has been absolutely amazing. I’ve been lucky enough to open up for Joshua Radin, to sold out crowds that had no idea who I was. I love that. It’s such a vulnerable feeling being in front of so many strangers- with hopes of winning them over. Nuts. Luckily no one threw rotten tomatoes at me and I sold out of all the CDs that I brought with me (woooo-hoooo) Hopefully I can come back here because I think me and England like each other.
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Friday (July 10), talking about being in New York City and doing a remake of ‘All Of Me’ by Frank Sinatra. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m in New York City at the moment… Just woke up and thought I’d write you!) I just played three shows in a row here, and last night was the last one. They were great – I got to play two last-minute ones with my really good friend Joe Purdy, who is amazing!!!!
I’m staying at my friend’s apartment in the east village for a week, and I’m kinda falling in love with this city. New York used to scare the sh** outta me – but not this time…
So – would I ever move??? Hmmm – What do u like better, NY or LA?
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Saturday (June 27), as the singer songwriter prepares to bring her act to the UK with Joshua Radin. Meiko writes:
And today is the day! I’m off to go play my first show ever in London! Woah! I couldn’t be more excited!
I’m trying to get my schedule somewhat in line with theirs – today – so… I just got up a 6am! Can you believe it? I can’t. Ok– It was 6:20. I arrive there in the morning and then I go straight to the radio station to do a live song… I think I’ll play ‘Under My Bed’. Busy times. Good times.
A lot of really awesome things have been going on- I just got off tour with Eric Hutchinson, (who is amazing live if you haven’t seen him yet! Do it!)
I’m going on my 1st ever UK tour with my home fry, Joshua Radin, and! I might be going to Guam to play a show at the end of July! What what!?
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Monday (June 15) while in St. Louis, the latest stop of her tour supporting Eric Hutchinson. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Every day we’ve had to get up pretty early and drive to the next town we’re playing… We had yesterday and today off – so we decided to spend it here! Couldn’t be happier! We were gonna go to Six Flags today, but the weather is looking a little like ass.
Tour’s been going really well, though… We’ve been opening up for Eric Hutchinson who is awesome!! It’s nice to get in front of huge crowds that have no idea who I am – and try to win them over… Very exciting!!
Meiko posted footage from her pair of shows at Shubas in Chicago on May 15th, which she said was the first time she had done two concerts back to back.
“The tour is going really, really well, even though our van broke down today,” the singer songwriter says in the video. “We didn’t hurt anybody or ourselves. That was kind of a stresser for the day, but it’s all good.”

Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Friday (May 29) while in San Francisco, the last date of her current tour leg. The former Hotel Cafe waitress writes:
I can’t wait… People always ask me if I ever get tired of touring and the answer is always NO. I’m in love with it. I like it better than waiting tables, that’s for sure – And! I get to see all kinds of cool places… Now the next step is Europe and Asia. That’s gonna be the shizzle.
Meiko posted a behind the scenes look at the making of her new music video for the song ‘Under My Bed’.
“This has been the awesomest day ever,” the singer songwriter says in the clip. “I get to work with so many different cool people. There’s gonna be like 40 different characters that will be crawling up from under my bed.”
Watch the preview below.
Meiko was excited to hit the road and kick off her tour, but airlines and weather appear to have gotten in the way. The singer songwriter tells fans on her Twitter page (@meiko911):
Tired and hoping that American Airlines doesn’t loose my bag (again).
Tour is starting off with a caceled show and flight due to baseball sized hail and a tornado! Awesomee! Having a beer in Dallas…
Moving to a strawberry daiquiri…
Still waiting at the Dallas airport… 8 hours later… No luggage, and probably gonna start crying….
Meiko takes viewers through the process of getting ready to go on her first ever headlining tour in a video clip at her MySpace Video channel. The singer songwriter is first seen with her suitcase before selecting some outfits to bring on the road. She also brought along green tea, vitamins, pillow and a baseball glove. Meiko also offers a look inside her underwear drawer, selecting an assortment of panties.
“Hi this is Meiko and I’m getting ready to go on my first headlining tour ever, and I’m really, really excited,” Meiko said. “As you can see, I have started packing (laughs). Basically I leave in a day and I like to wait until the last minute to do things, because that’s my style. But I have one pair of jeans and I thought I would take you guys with me as I pack my suitcase for tour.”
Video at MySpace has since been removed.
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Sunday (April 19), talking about her big move. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Things have been better than ever lately. I moved out of my sh**ty apartment FINALLY! And now I’m in a place that I love so much. And it’s all mine. I even have hard wood floors!
What what!? Not bragging – just super proud of myself for actually making that move. It was very necessary. My old apartment was a hand me down from my sister – who (bless her heart) had 2 dogs and a cat living with her who loved to chew carpet. uhhh… (that’s a joke in itself- not gonna go there)
Anyway- point is- I’m really happy.
