Over Meg & Dia
We're not sure Utah's going to be the next hotbed of rock talent, but Meg & Dia sure make a compelling argument for it. Technically a five-piece band that also features drummer Nicholas Price, bassist Jonathan Snyder and lead guitarist Carlo Gimenez, Meg & Dia is driven by sisters Meg and Dia Frampton. The two girls grew up in the small town of Draper, Utah, in a music-loving family (Dad was a DJ) that encouraged big sister Meg's guitar playing and little sister Dia's singing. After playing in several bands throughout high school and taking a hiatus to try out college, they formed Meg & Dia's five-piece lineup in 2005 and got themselves on the Warped Tour the following year. By 2007, they had signed with Warner Brothers and released debut album Something Real, followed in 2009 by Here, Here and Here.
