LA based artist, Hand Habits (aka Meg Duffy) has released their new album placeholder via Milk! Records.
Meg Duffy grew up in a small town in Upstate New York, and cut their teeth as a session guitarist and touring member of Kevin Morby’s band.
The name placeholder stems from Meg’s fascination with the undefinable. Their songs serve as openings, carved-out spaces waiting to be endowed with meaning. As a lyricist, Meg is drawn to the in-between, and the songs on this new album primarily confront the ways in which certain experiences can serve as a stepping stone on the road to self-discovery.
“A big aspect of my songwriting and the way I move through the world depends on my relationships with people. The songs on placeholder are about accountability and forgiveness,” Meg says. “These are all real stories. I don’t fictionalize much.
