Everything Is Fine
Marcus Meston is a sixteen year old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Pittsburgh, PA. Influenced in his earlier youth by bands such as Nirvana and Weezer, Meston then became interested in 'do-it-all' musicians and producers such as Matt Mahaffey and his band sElf, and other artists such as Jason Falkner, Brendan Benson, and Butch Walker. These influences have impacted Marcus Meston's music today, and the result is melodic, groove oriented, honest and concise power pop. Meston is musically backed by his father Tom Meston, who is also a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer. For this project Tom Meston played drums, bass guitar, keyboards, percussion, additional guitars and backing vocals, and he co-wrote two of the tracks on the EP. The result of the father/son collaboration brings an element of maturity to the youthful enthusiasm and tone that Marcus Meston is communicating in the seven tracks on the EP. Everything is Fine is not just an introduction to the music of Marcus Meston. It's a celebration of youthful music that embraces melody, diversity, and the emotion that comes with being at a particular stage in life. Live it, or re-live it. Either way, you won't be disappointed. Meston was the lead singer and guitarist and drummer in the band 13am.
