Megan swept the nation as a 'Top 10' American Idol Season 8 finalist, appearing on Ellen, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America, The American Idols LIVE! Tour, and as "Burger Girl" in the movie The Hall Pass, starring Jason Sudeikis, Owen Wilsonand directed by the Farrelly Brothers. Soon after the dust settled, she spent two years touring, writing and recording her own blend of songs, which would quickly blossom into her highly anticipated self-titled album. In 2014 Megan launched her own record label Loud Meow Music, and with it, her brand new album Free to Fly.
Reflecting to her time making Free to Fly, Megan explains, "This process really healed my soul and showed me my true potential. Writing and recording these songs was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had."
"After the songs were finished the real challenge began" adds Megan, "finding the right way to release them has been one of the hardest struggles I have faced. I am an artist but way before that I am a mother. Maintaining control of my artistry and continuing to give my son the time, love and attention he needs, is all that has mattered to me. I had to walk away from many huge opportunities that could have taken my career far but would have left my real purpose, of being a super mom, unfulfilled. But along with choosing family I also chose to never give up on these songs or singing, to start a label with my husband, remain in Utah and make/release music exactly how I need and want. Both of my worlds are completely combined and it's been well worth all the years of pain, sweat and tears."
Megan continues to write, record and perform music from her home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Keep an eye out for her featured vocals on iTCH's The Deep End, set to releaseoff Red Bull Recordson March 24th. For more information, please visit: http://www.meganjoy.net/
