Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a deep love for the land. Her 2022 album “Cottonwood” has been called “as real as it gets – a raw and real telling of engaging, relatable stories”, and received an Honorable Mention in American Songwriter’s lyric contest.
Her previous album “Waiting” (2020) earned The Ark of Music album of the year. Bee has won The Ohio Music Awards Best Americana and Best Singer-Songwriter Albums along with a finalist spot in the USA Songwriting Competition.
Her music is a blend of distinctly homespun vocals, acoustic simplicity, yearning soulfulness, and winsome storytelling. Her background as an environmental educator, traveling farmhand, and vagabond once took her into a desert wilderness where she found her voice around a campfire. She bases out of the rolling hills of Athens, Ohio and draws influence from the collision of Appalachian folk and modern songwriting.
