The moment Megan walked into Royal Studios Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell knew this wouldn’t be an ordinary session. “Megan Myles is one of the hardest working and most determined artists I have ever recorded. She has always done exactly what I have asked of her and has far exceeded my expectations. I have yet to see an artist progress as quickly as Myles has over the past two years. She is both an amazing songwriter and vocalist,” says Mitchell.
Megan Myles is an up and coming singer/songwriter with a rich and soulful country sound. She was born and raised in Memphis, TN. Music became a part of Megan's life at a young age. Her Mom often recalls the fact that Myles has been singing since she was old enough to talk. “As a child I can remember loving all music from Michael Jackson, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Shakacon to Reba McEntire, Tom Petty, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks and Tanya Tucker. There wasn’t a genre of music that I didn’t explore and each of those have influenced the artist that I am today,” says Myles. Megan worked her way through school by singing at local venues. After graduating from college, she finally settled down in Brighton, TN. and realized, after a short stint away from music, there was this huge hole in her life that she never wanted to fall into again. Her music can be described as warm, blues based, country meets southern rock. She has been strongly influenced by Memphis music and has a country sound that can only come from the South.
Megan recently recorded her first EP at Royal Studios in Memphis, TN., with producer/engineer Lawrence 'Boo' Mitchell. Mitchell is a melodic visionary. He heard depth and sincerity in her work as well as being impressed with her unique vocal style. Together they have been able to fuse multiple genres of music into one distinct and incredible sound. "I was surprised that Megan had no real musical training, prior to recording, because she had some really nice melodies and lyrics that were better than good," Mitchell recalls. "When she sings her songs, it sounds like the voice of women all over the world who have shared these same experiences. There's something about Megan's voice that makes her sound like she is representing everyone." Mitchell brought in several well-known musicians on this project such as Dave Smith, Carlos Seargant, Eric Lewis, Tommy Burroughs and Lester Snell (credits: John Mayer, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Rod Stewart, the Bar-Kays, Cindi Lauper, etc.). With all of this talent they were able to being her songs to life. She wrapped her project up over at L. Nix Mastering with Kevin and Larry Nix located in Ardent Studios.
During the Summer of 2012, Myles released her first EP, “Wheels within Wheels.” Leading up to this point she has been working closely with Cameron Mann, at the Memphis Music Foundation, to develop her career path. "It's easy enough to say you are committed to the life and work of being an artist; it's another thing to fulfill that by your actions. Megan brings talent with hard work together, which is what it takes to be successful. Her commitment and hard work inspires me” states Mann. Her music recently made its debut on Rock 103 during “Memphis Made.” She appeared and performed on WREG, Channel 3 during “Live at 9” to promote her recent release party at Minglewood Hall. Myles has also been picked, by Angry Nerd Productions, to represent Memphis artists in ‘Musicians for LeBonheur.” She has been chosen to perform at several benefit concerts as well as visit the families at the hospital. Two of her songs will be featured on a compilation CD to raise money for the cause. Myles is the special guest performer of the National Anthem at all sporting events throughout the city of Memphis and surrounding areas. She is scheduled to open for several artists and perform in many festivals during 2013. Go to www.meganmyles.com for dates of performances and appearances.
