Ghost Of You - Megan O'Neill
Our next LCM featured artist singer-songwriter Megan O'Neill is one of the fast rising stars of Country and Americana music in the UK. We were thrilled that Megan released her last mini album at one of our LCM gigs last year at The Sound Lounge. Following the success around her recent solo single 'Why I Need You', which has been on championed on radio playlists across the UK and had nearly 100K video views, on Friday Megan released the personal and atmospheric 'Ghost of You', another track from her highly anticipated forthcoming album. We are delighted that it is our LCM #SongOfTheDay. Recorded in Nashville earlier this year, Megan describes the song as "one of those ones that just kind of flowed out - it was effortless to write in some ways but then of course, when editing, you can spend hours changing one lyric here and another one there! It’s about loved ones lost but their memories live on as part of you. One part of you wishes you could let them go - let those memories go - and yet another part of you is thankful that you still have them with you in some spiritual way."
If you would like to see Megan live in #London she is headlining with her band on the 10th February at Under The Bridge in Chelsea. Don't miss it.
