Musically inclined: Singer takes on pop scene

Arvada singer takes on pop scene

At age 12 Meredith “Phee” Thaler began writing music, developing a passion that would later launch her, popping, onto the music scene.

“I’ve always been really inclined towards it,” Phee said. “I think (music) is such a personal way to connect to people; it touches hearts and I like to be a part of that.”

Growing up across Colorado, Phee said she knew at an early age she wanted to be a musician. After high school she moved to Hollywood to pursue her music career, attending The Musicians Institute and working as an intern with World Audience Management and Warner Brothers Records. Upon completion of her schooling, Phee moved back to Colorado, landing in Arvada and joined two bands, Reunion Drive and Smallz the Cat.

With music as a driving force within her, Phee eventually decided to branch off into a solo, pop-punk career.

“Through doing music, I want to help people feel they’re not alone,” she said, “So when they hear it, they can connect with it, and I think that’s a really cool personal thing.”

Now, in her mid-twenties, Phee, is jumping into Denver’s pop-punk music scene with two recently released synthetic pop singles, “Sex and Love” and “Mexico.” She is releasing a piano-driven album later this year.

Influenced by Irish punk, vintage rap, and modern radio hits, Phee said her initial album will focus on a variety of things, but have amore emotional and earthy sound, similar to her next single, “Go,” a song written by Denver’s Bob Matros about reconnecting with someone whom you care about.

“Pop and punk both are sounds that I kind of gravitate towards … I have that longing towards it,” she said. “There’s just kind of this thing inside me that I can’t ignore, it’s not going away, so it’s just everyday doing stuff (music).”

With her singles available on Pandora Internet Radio, iTunes, and the album coming out later this year, Phee’s music is gaining momentum. While finishing her album, she spends time working with a few bands, performing small Denver shows and at local open-mic nights around Arvada.

“I’m here, it (pop-punk music) exists,” Phee said. “There’s not a lot of that electronically-driven style; it’s definitely started to happen and it’s figuring out what avenue to go down.”

Outside of music, Phee spends the majority of her time hosting a science-fiction radio show called “Master Control,” playing video games, participating in local Live Action Role Playing (LARP) dueling tournaments and spending time with her family and friends.
