Rather than giving you my story written by some stranger, I wanted to write it myself and share everything with you from my perspective. Though it may not be perfect, it’s direct from my heart to your heart and I hope you enjoy. So… here we go 🙂
Hi, I’m Megan.
I’m a singer/songwriter and musician.
As a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut (or a mermaid, but who am I kidding, I would still totally be one if that was a real job). Music was always a part of my life. I played piano for many years growing up, but it wasn’t until high school when I first picked up the guitar that I fell in love with music. I knew then there was nothing else I wanted to pursue. Something just clicked when I started creating my own songs. I remember telling my parents that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Create.
My parents have always been there and in the beginning would help me by driving me to open mic nights after school. I worked hard to be able to play at local restaurants and outdoor malls. Christmas 2009 my dad got me a new guitar after seeing this wasn’t going to be just a phase. I traded in “Pawn Shop” (what I named my first guitar, since I got it from a local pawnshop. Good ‘ole Pawn Shop) and got the guitar I would eventually make my first real YouTube video with. A cover of “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon. I never would’ve guessed in a million years that YouTube would become the platform for me to share my music with the world.
It’s crazy to think that this girl from Katy, Texas has been blessed to travel and perform in places around the globe. Places I could never even imagine going to, let alone play music at. My fans are the ones who discovered me and who continue to inspire me. They are the reason I get to do what I love each day. I’m thankful to be on this journey with them.
For the past few years I’ve been living in LA. I released my first EP Escape in 2014 after going independent, I was in my first movie “Summer Forever” in 2015 (Still can’t believe that happened. So surreal), and now I’m getting ready to share the next chapter of my life with everyone. New music coming soon.
These are a few of my favorite things: Netflix, sushi, pink, glitter, NFL, lip gloss, Mario Kart, Call of Duty, bows, pina colada scented things, Star Wars, reading, grandma-like sweaters (you know, those oversized comfy sweaters), the beach, discovering new music, Disneyland, flipping the pillow over to the cool side, candles, balloons, Batman, penguins, Mexican Food, combat boots.
