Born in Nashville, Myers spent the first five years of her life in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains where she was raised by a truck driver father and a Jehovah's Witness mother. After her parents divorced, her mother married a fellow Witness, who moved the family to Ohio. Her mother and stepfather worked for a cleaning business. “They cleaned all night and slept during the day,” Myers says. When she was 12, Myers and her siblings were taken out of school when the family moved yet again, this time to Florida, where they bounced from town to town throughout her teen years. During this period, Myers began singing, writing songs on keyboard, and teaching herself to play guitar. She played bass in a band she started with her brother. “I had a huge need to express myself,” Myers says. “Music was always an escape from reality, because reality was pretty shitty. I had a really tough childhood, and was forced to be an adult at a really young age. Music was the only safe place that was my own, where I could say whatever I wanted.”..
