Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a raw love for the land. In the summer of 2020 she released her third studio album, "Waiting." Recorded on the brink of a global pandemic in a humble basement studio, intimate vocals and soulful lyrics are supported by a simple production that pulls you in to the closeness and warmth of these songs. The album follows her 2017 release “Like a Canyon” which won The Ohio Music Awards Best Americana and Best Singer-Songwriter Album along with 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
