Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a raw love for the land. Her 2017 studio album Like a Canyon received The Ohio Music Awards Best Americana and Best Singer-Songwriter Album. It also won her a finalist spot in the 2018 USA Songwriting Competition. Her music is a blend of distinctly homespun vocals, acoustic simplicity, yearning soulfulness, and winsome storytelling.
Megan's background as an environmental educator, traveling farmhand, and vagabond once took her into a desert wilderness where she found her voice around a campfire. Her life experiences emerge through her music as a slice of Americana for the wandering soul in us all. She bases out of the rolling hills of Athens, Ohio and frequently roams the country playing festivals, coffeehouses, brewpubs, house concerts, and around campfires.
“She seems to have nothing to prove and no agenda, just to write her heart and then sing it. (...) The album is beautifully produced, and Megan's voice cuts like a warbling bird through the music, like a line on a map.” Hold the Note Magazine
"Bee’s latest album feels like a drive through the area’s modest hills, sipping well water from a tin dipper to take away the taste of those dusty roads." No Depression Magazine
“It is Bee’s scenicly-lovelorn vocals and the deeply enigmatic portraits she paints with her lyrics that really make these songs come into perfect view.” Divide and Conquer Music
"...an inventive songwriter whose contributions to music are distinctively accessible and restorative. Social conciousness without preachiness, catchiness without corniness. Her work combines artistic brilliance with earthy authenticity." Troy Gregorino
