Meghan Jenkins and I started this website with several of her friends last spring, and I felt it was time to talk with Meghan about the challenges and successes of creating and performing in a 2020 that offered a vastly different landscape than any previous year.
We exchanged messages by email, text, Instagram IM, and telepathy. (That last one is made-up.) The multi-platform conversation offered below has been lightly edited for clarity and consistency.

It is a huge compliment when a musician declares an interest in a future collaboration with another musician after he has heard less than one entire track from the new musician, but that is what happened for Meghan Jenkins last week when Azar King heard the first track off her new EDM album, Panda’s Dance Party.

Panda’s Dance Party, Meghan Jenkins’ debut album, is now available to purchase, download, and stream on every music platform. A collection of sixteen EDM tracks, the album visits many styles, from techno, trance, 2-step, electro and beyond in its thirty-plus minutes.
Music has always been a part of what Meghan Jenkins brings to her projects. She sings on her shows and received some training in drumming and piano, so an album debut in any style is not a surprise to her fans.

The value in the collection is in how I (Mark) respond to it; because this is an entire world of music that I know very little about and pay attention to less, my first reaction to Meghan dropping this album this week was limited to, “I’ll listen to it because she’s my friend and collaborator.” I’m happy to report that I love this album, from its more meditative tracks (“Nah”) to its anthemic workouts (“Some People Are Bad Influences.”)
Panda’s Dance Party is available from these fine music services: Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes Store, Amazon Music, deezer, Tidal, Pandora, Juno Download.
