L&R Artist Profile: Megan Nash

"If a thunderstorm had a voice, it would sound like Megan Nash."
- The Afternoon Edition Weekdays, CBC Radio

Nominated for Western Canadian Music Award Songwriter of the Year for 'Deer Head'

From the minute you meet Megan, you know her. Her spirituality, losses, and the truth behind her stories and songs. She is as open with herself as she is with her songwriting. Combining honesty and a powerful voice to create an unbeatable performance, Megan Nash is the shivers down your spine, the sugar in your tea and the feeling you can’t shake on a late night walk in the middle of nowhere.

Her sophomore recording effort was well received by critics and audiences alike. "Showing off a voice that ranges from a soothing coo to a thunderous growl (all in the same song), Song Harvest Volume One tackles themes of love and loss without sounding cliché." - Exclaim!

Nash has has toured the majority of Canada and has opened for the likes of Serena Ryder, Amelia Curran, The Heartbroken, and Del Barber. Nash has showcased at Folk Alliance 2015 and 2016 through Breakout West and Folk Music Canada, Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Council, and as part of JUNOfest. Nash has performed at the Regina Folk Festival, Ness Creek Festival, Bengough’s Gateway Festival, and Moose Jaw’s Festival of Words. She has been a two time nominee for the Prairie Dog’s Best Solo Act and was named Moose Jaw’s Best Celebrity in 2014 and Best Local Artist in 2015 by the Moose Jaw Times Herald readers. 

Nash’s country background adds to her current pop and alternative influences. Nash is heavily influenced by the sounds of Neko Case and Stevie Nicks and by the words of Leonard Cohen. Drawing heavy on the vastness of the prairies, her rural roots are apparent in her carefully crafted songs.
