Megan Sidwell embodies the perfect balance of an edgy, chuck-wearing rocker with the pure heart of a country belle. Her music achieves this, forming a unity between the sensibilities of rock and country pop. Her music bleeds of infectious pop hooks and country harmonies, with an edge and a dramatic overtone so overtly unique to her style.
Her musical personality has been shaped over the years by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Pat Benatar, Hayley Williams and Dave Grohl, while the gentler side of her craft pays homage to pop sensations, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
Born in Tauranga, New Zealand, this young starlet has won the Smokefree Rockquest Regional heats’ Female Musicianship award twice over 2007 and 2008. Relocated and based in Auckland currently, Megan is studying for a Bachelor of Music at The University of Auckland.
Sidwell's new EP has been produced and mixed by the multi-talented musical mogul, Ben King (Goldenhorse), also featuring the work of Nick Gaffaney and Janek Croydon. Released 11th October. Available on iTunes http://bit.ly/GSQNoc
