Meredith Axelrod

Genre: Roughly, Folk
Delightfully engaging and unassumingly comic Meredith Axelrod envisions the limitless potential of early twentieth century music and embodies the spirit that brought the music into existence in the first place. Her “homemade” vocal style is unusual probably because she learned to sing by listening to how folks did it a century ago – through the medium of cylinders and 78-rpm records. The dominant theme throughout her expansive repertoire is that whatever the genre these are songs she learns from the original sources (records and / or sheet music) which were released between the 1890s and the 1930s.
