Meg Remy can’t live without music. The writer, singer and experimental pop artist creates music under the name U.S. Girls, and her discography stretches back to 2008. Remy describes her sound as avant-garde, but her layered melodies and narrative lyrics remain accessible to everyone. In 2021, Remy published Begin by Telling, a memoir that digs deep into her childhood with an associative, immersive voice. Remy talks to us about the ways making music has changed her life for the better, how her relationship with mental health has evolved, and why it’s so important to keep telling stories. Read about Remy in The Ringer, The Guardian, and the New Yorker, and listen to U.S. Girls on Spotify.
