Megg Farrell announces release Party
About Megg Farrell: Megg Farrell is quickly establishing herself as a voice to be heard in the Americana music scene. After paying her dues in the highly competitive New York City jazz world, she has cultivated a vocal style that is both moving and masterfully proficient. Taking cues from Emmylou Harris and The Hot Band, she has put together a group of musicians whose technical prowess is sure to excite any audience, without resorting to cheap tricks and flashy pyrotechnics. Equally impressive as the musicians she surrounds herself with, Farrell’s original compositions truly shine. Her songwriting has been described as “the essence of folk story telling and organic musicianship.”
The new release: This is Megg Farrell’s second record of original music. She started out as a singer-songwriter but then fell into the full-time jazz musician world. “I started gigging all the time and not leaving time to perform my music. My last record Fear Nothing was basically me taking the time to put out something original, I wasn’t really performing very often with any group with that stuff and I wanted it to get out to the public exist somewhere.” Megg Says.
The band recorded this album a year ago very quickly because she wanted to get some music down with a full band to start playing gigs. Megg was surprised at how well the recordings came out and decided to release it as an album. Since recording it I have been through a wild year of transition where I began getting more and more influenced by classic country and found more and more inspiration to perform my original music frequently Nashville this year. This album marks the beginning of “Megg going electric, Megg going country, Megg finding her roots in songwriting”.
