Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a raw love for the land. Her latest studio album Like a Canyon (2017) was awarded Best Americana and Best Singer-Songwriter Album from The 2017 Ohio Music Awards. She blends a distinctly homespun voice over an acoustic simplicity. Her lyrics continue to carry that yearning soulfulness and winsome storytelling that filled her first release, A Sense of Place (2015).
Megan’s background as an environmental educator, traveling farmhand, and vagabond once took her into a desert wilderness where she first found her voice around a campfire. That intimacy around a campfire emerges through in her music as a slice of Americana for the wandering soul and nature-lover 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.
“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
