If you hear a voice that makes you turn around twice, chances are it's Megan Leigh. Known for her angelic voice, perfectly blended harmonies, and engaging rhythms, the up-and-coming female singer songwriter from Western Maryland has been performing to audiences in the Washington DC area and all over the country.
Conjuring powerful momentum during just her first year of full-time musicianship, Megan’s versatility and passion for her craft continue to lead her to extraordinary opportunities, including performances in renowned venues such as 9:30 Club in Washington DC, Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, and Mockingbird Theater in Nashville, TN. She has also opened for American Idol winner Lee DeWyze and embarked on multiple US tours — and if you ask the budding artist, she’ll tell you she’s “just getting started!”
Megan’s latest release "In This Space" captivates and comforts, taking you deep into an ethereal world with her breathy high notes and grounded musicality. Her debut original song ‘The Longest Night of the Year’ reached the Top 20 in the US Folk DJ charts in 2019.
Refusing to be limited by genre, Megan Leigh adds her own distinctive sound to a broad range of musical styles, from rock and indie to oldies and soulful blues. She's recorded a beautiful a cappella rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, lent her voice to a trio cover of Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, and performs a truly unique folk version of Wake Me Up by Avicii.
When she’s not touring or recording new music, you can find Megan singing in tandem with adventure folk singer Eli Lev around the DMV area, lighting up the stage with Baltimore’s indie rock band The Henchmen, or connecting to her roots with Virginia-based Appalachian soul singer Caryn Switaj.
With new original projects in the works, listeners can look forward to compelling upcoming releases from Megan Leigh that push the boundaries of vocalization to create her own striking sonic landscape.
