Biography

BBC YOUNG FOLK AWARD WINNER
Megan showed signs of what was to come from a very early age. Her first public performance was at the local Henley Youth Festival where she performed one of her own songs at the age of 9. As a teenager Megan’s songwriting skills continued to develop and she performed, both as a solo artist and with her band, honing her craft on the local live circuit. At eighteen she spent six months travelling where she paid her way playing guitar and singing to crowds in Venice, Thailand, India and Malaysia. It was during this time she fell in love with the people of Nepal and has since returned to Kathmandu twice to record with leading Nepalese musicians Nirmal Kulu, Binod Katal and Shyram Saram Nepali.
Back in the UK, between songwriting and performing Megan regularly contributes to music therapy sessions for people with learning difficulties. These experiences have had a profound effect on her songwriting. Her powerful, poignant and often witty lyrics are woven around wonderful timeless pop melodies and demonstrate a depth and maturity far beyond her years.
Megan won the BBC RADIO 2 Young Folk Award in 2009 with her brother Joe, beating off strong competition in the final at Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank, at the age of 20.

    The lyrics to 'Making Waves' are embarrassingly dreadful. It's a kind of dithery attempt to sound deep and thoughtful by getting a bunch of 'contemporary issues' and weaving a three minute sing song with a crap melody around hopelessly clichéd lyrics and awkward rhymes. It's all part of her irritating attempt to market herself as some kind of 'sensitive hippy musician' surrounded by flowers and innocence. I can't help but think that if she really cared about any of these issues she would have managed to write lyrics that DON'T read like a 7 year old's homework assignment on the evils of the world. I think the prize for the worst couplet has got to go to this little beauty: "Countries all fighting each other / Bombs all over the place" or maybe this one: "We all live in the same world, we all breathe the same air / Yet somehow we complain that, this life isn't so fair" Nice try Megan. Don't give up the day job
