Megan JohnsAmerican experimental folk-rock singer-songwriter, Megan Johns, originates from a small urban oasis surrounded by endless fields of Illinois corn and soy. At age 16, she recorded her first album written secretly in early adolescence. Comparisons to Fiona Apple and Neko Case were common, with one reviewer describing the record as, “Alternative folk rock with unlikely flashes of Mazzy Star.” She soon began receiving press and collaborating with artists such as Mountain Goats bassist, Peter Hughes, Zoot Suit Riot engineer Billy Barnett, as well as accomplished string and horn players and emcees.
Johns has played hundreds of shows in the last decade, including internationally. Her latest full-length solo CD,Megan Johns Hey, Lonely, recorded by Adam Schmitt, encapsulates a solid 10 years honing both her guitar skills and inventive songcraft, showcasing emotional themes and unique vocal melodies – all underpinned by heavy downpicking of metal-like rhythms. Comparisons swing more to Smashing Pumpkins, Tori Amos, and Cat Power.
Megan Johns is currently based in the Pacific Northwest. Her mission is to share and instill love, healing, understanding, positivity, epiphany and the value of creativity via music and art. She performs solo and with a full backing band, currently including Billy Barnett (lead guitar), Jesse Greenlee (drums) and Aaron Nelson (bass), and alternately as MoonWish.
