Meghan Pulles ©️ 2023
Today We Have The Pleasure To Have This Great Artist Here On Goathead!
GH: What inspired you to start writing music?
Meghan Pulles: Writing music has always been a therapy for me. When I was 17 and my dad gave me his old guitar to play, I began to start processing and healing by letting my subconscious thoughts follow through with melodies with chords, and that has always been a comfort to me.
GH: Can you tell us more about your experience performing live at gigs and what was the most memorable experience you had?
Meghan Pulles: I have been playing live for the past 4 years, and I can honestly say my favorite experience thus far was traveling to Mesa, AZ for the Mesa Music Festival this past April. It was an amazing experience getting to meet other musicians, support each other, and play at some really cool venues in a new part of the country. Traveling and playing music is definitely one of my favorite things about this career.
GH: How is your process of songwriting set around?
Meghan Pulles: My process is more like "coming to the altar." I set aside time every single day to pick up one of my instruments, sit with my thoughts, and let emotions pour out. If something has happened, then this is my time to process it and to let it out in a healthy way. Sometimes these are moments, and other times they turn into beautiful compositions of songs that can help others as they are going through the same feelings. No matter what happens, I try to honor each and every time this occurs because it is from "source," and sometimes "source" has a lot to tell us or show us.
GH: What motivates you to create music and bring awareness to different situations through your songs?
Meghan Pulles: I think the motivation lies in the power of music and how it can really impact and change our lives. It has impacted and changed mine, and in so many ways, it has saved it. I think about all of the listeners that I have come across who have thanked me for writing a song, told me how much my vulnerability has made them want to be vulnerable, that my strength has given them strength, and that by sharing what was in my heart and soul, I have helped them feel seen and feel heard. I process, write, share, and create for them.
GH: Could you share some insights into your next projects?
Meghan Pulles: I am going to be taking a bit of a break for a while, but I do have some other projects in the pipeline—perhaps a double album
