"Sweet and uplifting," "Profound Voice," "Compelling," "Fresh and original,” Poignant lyrics," – Lindsay Berman, Artvoice Buffalo. "An earthy, ethereal sound that you will want to play again and again..." Tina Waters- Fotografia, Buffalo. Combining folk, rock and soul, Megan's songs are stories of loss, triumph and wandering. She plays with nuance and dynamics and a deep reverence and understanding of music's transcendent power. Based out of Buffalo NY, Megan has toured abroad, where she debuted her independent release "Since the Fire.” A self-proclaimed gypsy, Megan Callahan has played with Mary Ramsey of "John and Mary" and "10,000 Maniacs," Jeremy Wall of "Spyro Gyra," and many others.
