Megan Keely was born and raised in the hills south of San Francisco, CA. With three albums released and a fourth on the way, Megans body of work is simultaneously soothing and empowering.
"Define American" is the first single off Megan Keely's forthcoming album, "Bloom," recorded at Jacksons Groove Masters in LA. With the launch of the music video, the song was picked up by Jose Antonio Vargass nation-wide non profit to help deepen conversations around immigration and cultural change.
She is breaking new ground with songs celebrating life and strength. Her songwriting first caught the attention of producer T Bone Burnett, who selected Megan's song, "Rules" (co-written with her brother Brandon) for inclusion on The Hunger Games Soundtrack Companion Album. "Megan Keely is a stunning young woman with a voice that will break your heart and heal it all in one sitting." - Annie Bacon -The Folk Opera
For this performance, she will be accompanied by Steve Wyreman on guitar.
