Megan O’Neill is the stuff of dreams, Irish fairy tales and everything in between. A singer songwriter who manages to capture the essence of that emerald isle in words and melodies so enchanting that you will come away bewitched by her songs. Just listen to tracks ‘Ireland‘, ‘Time in a Bottle‘ and ‘Winter Sun‘ from her latest album ‘Getting Uncomfortable with Uncertainty‘.
We talk about touring across Germany and the upcoming shows across Ireland and the United Kingdom. Megan expresses how thrilled she is getting into the swing of things and playing in front of a live audience again. The title of the album relates to life in general and not specifically pandemic related. The process of recording and planning this album was dealing with the only constant in life is change.
Megan made her decision to move back to Ireland after living in America and London. A move that has been the right one for her emotionally and musically. Having two albums and various EPs to her name Megan is now concentrating on releasing more singles as a way of showcasing her singer songwriting talents, with a view to possibly make an album out of them.
A huge milestone for Megan was getting her song ‘Time in a Bottle‘ picked up for Netflix’s ‘Firefly Lane‘. Writing for different artists and genres is something that Megan has grown into and loves exploring the voice of another artist. Having patience is one of the key attributes that Megan believes all artists should have when starting a career in the arts and to enjoy the dream.
Supporting her from the beginning of her career has been her family who she credits for supporting her throughout her musical journey. Megan’s musical heroes are Joni Mitchell, Carol King, Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel and Tim Crotchet, Irish Folk Music which she credits to her mother’s musical taste. Currently Megan’s listening to 1975, Holly Humberstone, Taylor Swift and Charli Adams, all of which satisfies her pop cravings!
