McDream opportunity

Meaghan Smith could be looking at a career maker.

Meaghan Smith could be looking at what some call a “career-maker”---her song “5 More Minutes” is going to be featured on Grey’s Anatomy (May 1 episode). Plus, it’s a pretty awesome story. In a nutshell, Smith’s song is featured because she’s fun to hang out with. Here is the tale in her own words, “Last September I attended the Halifax Film Festival and went to some one-on-one meetings with music supervisors where I met a bunch of really great film and TV supervisors from out here in LA. While in the one-on-one meetings, we got to chatting about shopping and the city and they invited me to hang out and show them some cool stores. So the next day we hung out, went shopping and just got to know each other. This resulted in their genuine interest in hearing my music and when they got home, they all listened to the demo I was passing around. I heard from pretty much all six of them in the next few days when they got home, and since, they have been very supportive of what I've been doing. Jonathan Palmer, one of the supervisors I met, is good friends with Alex Patsavas, who does the music supervision for Grey's Anatomy and he introduced me to her while I was here in LA in November. She turned out to be a great supporter as well. She has been determined to get one of my songs in her show, and since the end of the writer's strike, she was able to get it in. So it'll be airing in this Thursday's episode!” This, paired with her recent Warner deal with Sire Records (who also represent Tegan and Sara and Regina Spektor) and her new album coming out in August, it appears there is a lot to be excited about. “I am looking forward to playing my Halifax release the most,” says Smith. “So many people have been patiently waiting... It's going to be so worth the wait!”
