“I would put that as a single anywhere on the Billboard, even next to a Taylor Swift Record.”
— JazzFeezy (for Megan's single "Stay Out All Night")
With a flair for storytelling, her unique sound has been compared to Amy Winehouse, Hayley Williams, and Halsey.
Megan Anne is an indie-pop singer/songwriter from Barrie, Ontario. Shortly after performing at Toronto’s Sound Academy, she entered the Ontario-wide music competition LocalLiveCanada. The contest was aired live on RogersTV, and after thousands of votes came in from across the province, Megan was crowned the winner of the show’s fifth season. Her single “Stay Out All Night” was released to iTunes, Spotify, and all other major online music realtors. She is self-taught on piano, ukulele, and guitar.
Megan recently attended York University, studying Vocal Music. She was the 2017 recipient of both the Sterling Beckwith Award, and the Imasco Performing Arts Award. Megan has also been a part of the Barrie's Street Performers Program for the last three years. Megan’s music has been heard on Beach Booster Radio and RogersTV. In 2017 alone she has been contacted for interviews by Barrie Advance, KoolFM, Hammer Records, and Wild Side Music.
Megan’s band members have all arrived in her life by happy accidents. Megan met her drummer, Tanner Greatrix, (former member of popular London band Say Hello,) after her high school competed against his in the Sears Ontario Drama Festival. She then met her bassist Dylan Burrett (currently touring with Warner Music Canada artist Scott Helman,) while on set for the Helman music video “PDA.” Megan sat on the stage during a break in filming and struck up a conversation with Dylan, in which the two decided they wanted to work together. Finally, after many trial and errors in posting Kijiji ads, Megan found guitarist Cameron Stow, who recently completed his degree in guitar performance from Dalhousie University.
Megan’s most recent project has been working with the indie game studio One More Story Games. They are developing a game based on the novel Shakespeare’s Landlord by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris (HBO’s True Blood, NBC’s Midnight TX). Megan’s original song “Peace” will be appearing in the game, to be released in early 2018.
Megan Anne is currently in the studio working on her first EP, and performing in and around Barrie. For bookings please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit her website https://meganannemusic.com.
