Life is encompassed with an array of emotions spanning the boundaries from elation to depression. This span is a journey that has many sights and stops along the way. Sometimes we are able to alter these emotions, other times they alter us. When a spark is needed to evoke a change, people look outside of themselves to help guide that change. Enter Meridian.
Meridian, although collectively new, is no amateur to the world of music and inspiration. A collection of five unique individuals that purpose themselves on helping to evoke an emotion, be it good or bad. The music and the message do not fit in a certain category, Meridian prides itself on spanning the genres and making the song for the sake of the song. It began in January 2009 as guitarists Mark Sims and Shannon Nedved sought out to create something new and different from the paths they have traveled in the past. They reached out to vocalist Tim Ziegler and quickly began creating the melodic foundation that guide this well-mapped tour of the mind. Soon thereafter, Meridian’s infamous rhythm section would be born with the addition of Chris Gentry and Moe Martinez to shake loose the fibers of every institution they visit.
Meridian prides itself on its live show, a true spectacle that will take everyone present on an emotional joyride. The band truly believes in the concept of entertainment of the mind, body, and soul. The music and the message are just the catalyst, the emotion and response are the victory.
Meridian, alongside acclaimed producer David Castell, released their debut self-titled EP on iTunes worldwide on October 31, 2012. The rest of the story has yet to be written.
