About


"Nearly everyone who encounters this attractive and sophisticated singer-songwriter agrees that she has 'star' written all over her," says Acoustic Guitar Magazine about Megan, "She forges a distinctive sound with her smooth and courageous vocal dynamics, intelligent and diverse song styles, and sheer infectious enthusiasm."

Though only in her early 20's, this ambitious "star" has independently sold 30,000 CDs while playing 100s of cities across the United States and Europe.

Megan self-produced her first CD at age eighteen, her second a few years after that, and recorded her third with help from Counting Crows' guitarist Dan Vickrey. Currently reequipped with a guitar, soaring vocals, and now a new band—who are so tight they might as well be brothers—Megan has been hard at work since last fall finishing up her fourth CD, an edgy alt-rock record, bursting with stories told from unique perspectives which will be released in the Spring of 2009.

Megan and her music have appeared on TLC's "What Not To Wear", which generated purchases by TV viewers that placed her CD "Freaky Little Story" on the #5 spot on CD sales charts and on the Top-10 Rock Bestseller list on Because of the episode's popularity, the show's producers featured her in a follow-up episode a year later, bringing "Freaky Little Story" and her third release, "A Little Extra Sun" back into the Top-10.

Her recent songwriting has received a lot of industry attention: She was selected as a semi-finalist in Discmaker's 2007 Independent Music World Series and the 2007 International Songwriting Competition and selected as a finalist in the 2008 and 2009 Musician's Atlas/Borders Books Independent Music Awards. Megan also won the 2009 IMA Vox Populi for her cover of Paul Simon's song "America" and earned the January 2009 Top 5 artist in the Competition.

In addition to TV, the singer's music has also been featured on San Francisco AAA station KFOG's compilation CD. She has been featured in Rockgrl Magazine, Owl Magazine, The Synthesis, Fresh Tracks and Women In Rock, in addition to Acoustic Guitar magazine – whose editors named "Freaky Little Story" one of their top albums of 2005. She was a final selection artist for RPM Direct Presents: Unsigned Artists Volume 3 compilation CD; an A&R Online featured artist; a Song and Film Spotlight artist; and, an Acoustic Cafe featured artist on the "One to Watch" syndicated radio program (sponsored by the USA Songwriting Competition). She also co-wrote and performed on the title track of Dire Straits founding member David Knopfler's new record, "Ship of Dreams".

Megan has performed in over 100 cities in five different countries, including at showcases in Boston (NEMO) and Toronto (NXNE), on three tours as support for David Knopfler (Germany and England), and at the international festival InGuitar in Zurich (Switzerland). She will resume touring after the completion of the new CD.

Megan was such a great addition to our happy hour event! She is extremely talented musically - plays and sings as well as anyone you'd catch on TV and has a great range of original songs and covers. But additionally, she understood what we needed logistically, played non stop for 4 hours, and was referred to as a 'rock star' by the management team in charge of the event (dual meaning there!). Our Atlanta team was trying to figure out how to get her from San Francisco to Georgia for their Holiday party. We would recommend Megan with no hesitation - for a professional or a more personal setting. She really is the whole package!

********** Megan is gifted, natural, skilled, responsible, and an absolute professional artist and performer. Megan’s talent, performance and professionalism could not possibly have been more perfect for the event. In fact, Megan took the time to really catch a groove and take the temperature of the room and the guests in order to be herself while utilizing her artistry and musicianship to play appropriately and specifically for the guests and the venue. Megan is an absolute treasure, has unique style, technique and character and I highly recommend Megan for any and all bookings. I’m looking forward to booking her again soon. - Mike Sosna SOS PRODUCTIONS

I've never been so satisfied with an arraignment of any kind that I have made over the internet. Meagan was spectacular and had a fantastic attitude. It was my wife's surprise 50th birthday and we had guests from 9-79, every single person enjoyed her immensely. Many patrons of the restaurant were crowding in the doorway all night just to get a chance to hear her. I was so lucky to find her, thank you Gig Masters. Thank you Meagan for making our night so special!

Megan was absolutely fantastic! She played at our wedding and we received so many comments from our guests that they were so pleased with her performance. She even went an extra mile to learn a new song from listening to an orchestra version on YouTube, as the song had a special meaning for us. During the ceremony, we asked her to sing a few songs which made the ceremony very special and added warm and lovely colours to it. We cannot thank her enough for all the effort she had put into our event and we strongly recommend her to any events if you wish to have a performance filled with warmth and of course a fantastic singer with a great voice!

We hired Megan and Jeff to sing acoustic for our Wedding and couldn't be happier with our decision. They performed at our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We have received a lot of feedback from our wedding and the main thing that everyone is raving about is Megan and Jeff! They absolutely added a special element to our very special day. I would definitely hire Megan and Jeff again and would absolutely recommend them to all my friends and family. -The Couch's

I can not say enough about the performance that Megan Slankard gave us on our wedding day September 12, 2010. She has a powerful voice that is sweet and soulful. Her music is diverse and she even learned three songs at our request which she sang as if she had been playing them for years. She not only is a talented singer and accomplished guitar player, but she also has a library of songs she has composed herself. Megan is a beautiful lady with a warm heart and a fantastic voice. I feel fortunate to have had her sing and strum for us because I believe that she will be a household name in the future. I highly recommend her for anyone who enjoys true talent.

Prior to hiring them we listened to Megan and Jeff online and were very impressed. But the samples didn't hold a candle to the live performances we heard at our wedding and reception. Whether they serenaded our guests unplugged, played soft acoustic music for the ceremony, or plugged in and sang at the reception they sounded exceptional. All night we received complements. They even learned our favorite song for our first dance! Megan was flexible, kind, and sang like an angel! Jeff was perfect as well, and really a cool fun guy. We consider ourselves SO fortunate to have found Megan. We only wish we could have had a CD made so we could hear it all again!

We had Megan play for my husband's 40th birthday party. Megan was fantastic! Talent wise she is off the charts, her voice if unbelievable. She showed up early, set up, played requests, stayed longer, totally professional and so much fun. We loved her and would suggest her for any event and hope to have her back at our next party!
