Who is Meghan Trainor and is she really All About That Bass?

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post that included a cover of Meghan Trainor's song "All About That Bass". At that time, I promised I would write more about her at a later date.  Ladies and Gentlemen, that date has arrived.

Meghan Trainor is an American singer-songwriter and record producer. Trainor began singing at the tender age of 6 and songwriting at age 11. She later became a member of a band called Island Fusion and a jazz band at high school. At the age of 15, Trainor produced and released a self-titled album. She then attended the Berklee College of Music and found success at a variety of songwriting contests across the United States. In 2011, she released two acoustic albums, I'll Sing with You and Only 17. The latter earned her a song publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music, where she wrote for Rascal Flatts and Sabrina Carpenter, among others.

In February 2014, Trainor was signed to Epic Records by L.A. Reid after performing her song "All About That Bass" on the ukulele for him. The song was later championed by Reid as Trainor's debut single and saw a release on June 30, 2014. "All About That Bass" became a best-selling single. It was number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for eight consecutive weeks. The single preceded Trainor's debut EP Title, which debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200 in September 2014. Trainor's second single, "Lips Are Movin", marked her second consecutive top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number four. Her debut album, Title, was released on January 9, 2015.

Trainor's music is predominantly bubblegum pop, blue-eyed soul, doo-wop and pop in sound. Her lyrics mainly deal with subjects of 21st-century womanhood and self-empowerment. Trainor's work has been recognized with a variety of award nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "All About That Bass" at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

Meghan Trainor turned 21 years of age on December 22, 2014.
