Meg Duffy, who records as Hand Habits, is a breath of fresh air. On her gorgeously affecting debut album on Woodsist LP “Wildly Idle Humble Before The Void” , Duffy channels her Piscean ways into a collection of wonderful pop songs that float through the ambience and reward the time you spend with them. Meg Duffy hasn’t stopped moving, working, or growing since she left her quiet childhood home in upstate New York.

Though Meg didn’t pick up the instrument until she was seventeen years old, her intuitive, naturalistic musicality and commitment to the craft of guitar playing have made an in demand collaborator and guitarist for countless indie acts (Kevin Morby, Mega Bog, Weyes Blood).

Meg’s LP debut Wildy Idle (Humble Before the Void) (Woodsist Records 2017) ​is many things at once. The record is a collection of songs written amidst the constant motion of touring, recording, and working part-time jobs; recorded at home in North East L.A between other commitments, around the sounds of roommates cooking breakfast, and dogs pattering though an old craftsman house.
