Meryl Rudy is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter, musician, and producer. At eight-years-old, Meryl began her musical journey by taking classical piano lessons alongside her father. Two years later, Meryl discovered her true passion. She picked up the guitar to write a song. She has now written almost four hundred songs about everything from her family to random couples she sees on park benches to her best friends to The Office, etc. Some of her biggest influences are the Madison Cunningham, Theo Katzman, Ed Sheeran, and The Beatles.


Meryl recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree in Songwriting. She has performed in venues across the country in her duo Two Birds, alongside her five-piece band, and solo. She also opened for NPR’s Tiny Desk Top Shelf Judges Pick of 2019, The Collection (who also happens to be Meryl’s favorite band).

Outside of music, it should be known that Meryl is an avid Gin Rummy player. She is extremely competitive about this game and would not even let a beginner win. :)

In addition to creating music, Meryl is also passionate about music education, giving others a way to express themselves through music. While in high school, she taught beginning guitar to children and adults. She also has experience as a song leader— guiding and teaching prayers through music—at her hometown synagogue in the Chicago area and synagogues in Boston. Meryl even co-wrote a nationwide-known version of the Sh’ma prayer called “Sh’ma (You Shall Love)” with her friends, Sam and Zach Powers. This song is sung at Jewish summer camps and synagogues across the country. 


During quarantine, Meryl began working with her friends to publish a board game called Risky Chicken. She composes music for the game's advertisements, helps to develop marketing strategies, and works with a team to oversee illustrations, promotions, and website design.

In the last few years, Meryl released a series of Featuring EPs, including her song, I'd Run to the Moon, with half a million streams on Spotify. These EPs are collections of Meryl’s original music featuring different artists to highlight the various voices and genres for which Meryl loves to write. Not only did she “cast” (as Meryl likes to call it) the artists for the project, but also she produced and arranged the songs, recorded demos, organized rehearsals and recording sessions, and performed acoustic guitar on all of the songs. Collaboration with other artists, musicians, and creators has always been an important part of Meryl's musical journey.
