Irish born singer - songwriter Megan O’Neill has just finished working on her fourth
studio record, set for public release in October 2020. This much anticipated album
follows her last release, ‘Ghost of You’ (June 2018) which hit #1 on the iTunes
singer/songwriter charts in the UK and Ireland.
To date Megan has toured the UK, Ireland, US and Germany. She has performed at
private Oscars’ parties in LA alongside Gavin James (on invite from JJ Abrams)
and has had her song ‘Don’t You’ featured on ABC’s hit TV Show ‘Nashville’
In 2019 Megan opened three stadium shows for the legendary Sir Tom
Jones (Bristol, Taunton and Colchester) - performing in front of 15,000 people per
night. In the first few months of 2020, Megan opened for Lighthouse Family at the
Olympia Theatre, Dublin and Jamie Cullum at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
Prior to her album ‘Ghost of You’; Megan released two EP’s: ‘Coming Home’
(2015) - produced by Philip Magee (The Script, Kodaline) and ‘Stories to Tell’
(2017) - produced by Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler). She also released
a single under Decca Records in collaboration with Ben Earle (The Shires) - ‘Can’t
Put a Price on That’ (2016).
Megan has been deemed “one of the rising stars” of UK Original Alt-Country /
Americana Music by uDiscover (2018) and Timeout Magazine London. In 2018, she
performed at every UK Country Music Festival including Country-2-Country (at the
02, London), Black Deer Festival, The Long Road Festival and Nashville Meets
London’s series of events.
In 2019, Megan took the main stage at the British Country Music Festival, toured
with Sir Tom Jones across the UK, released 2 brand new singles and performed as
the lead female in a very exciting new project with Universal Music – ‘Now That’s
What I Call Country Music The Roadshow’. Megan also spent 2019 finishing her
next album with The Dunwells (titled ‘Getting Comfortable with Uncertainty’). This
forthcoming 12-track album has already received attention from the sync world, with
one track off the album having already been selected for placement in a major
Netflix series, airing this year.
