Nashville, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Megan Munroe Official Website) - Singer/songwriter Megan Munroe's newest CD, ONE MORE BROKEN STRING, launches nationwide on February 10, 2009. Munroe handles the disc's peppery up-tempo tracks with a fiery flair reminiscent of Miranda
Lambert and brings passion and road-weary nuances to the project's heart-wrenching ballads ala Alison Krauss. A fan of Jewel, Bonnie Raitt, Tori Amos
Jam, you'll hear hints of these artists' influences in Megan's own music, but her sound is distinctly her own.
While just 25, Megan gives us songs that communicate lifetimes of understanding. Throughout the disc's 12 tracks, she offers up Country with a twist; her blues-infused melodies combine with vocals that range from saucy to sweet. Produced by Doug Deforest, album highlights abound and include: the fiesty "Leavin' Memphis, 'the soul-searing "Nothing Is Easy Anymore " and "Lonely Tonight," along with the thought-provoking "Pennies In The Ocean."
The musicianship is solid, and features Tim Crouch on Violin/Mandolin/Acoustic Guitar/Banjo/Percussion (Dolly Parton, Vince Gill); Robby Springfield on Electric Guitar /Steel Guitar (Jo-El Sonnier, Andy Williams); R.P. Harrell on Piano and B3 (Sammy Kershaw, Roy Clark), and Mike Kennedy on Drums and Percussion (George Strait's Ace In The Hole Band) and Doug Deforest on Bass Guitar/Acoustic Bass/Keyboards (David Allan Coe, Todd Fritsch). "The players were a joy to work with," says the petite brunette. "ONE MORE BROKEN STRING was one long watershed moment for me. It represents a giant step for me musically, and they made my vision for these songs a reality."
Her music has been forged by a childhood in rural Washington state, a three-year stint in the Los Angeles acting community (she left home at 17, and appeared in WB's Everwood and films Lost on the B Side, Mixing Karma and The Standard V.15), and regular gigs throughout the Northwest at clubs, fairs and festivals. She's shared the bill with Eric Church and other country notables. She now calls Nashville home, and with ONE MORE BROKEN STRING she steps on to the national stage.
